DL – When did the idea of starting a tattoo business in Dehradun struck you?
Sam – I started my business of tattoos in December 2009 in Dehradun.
DL – A lot of people think that tattoo is not good for skin and body. Is it true? What would you like to tell to the people who think so.
Sam – Its nothing like that. Tattoos are something which people wear to make themselves attractive and unique. Tattoos are symbolic and always had some meaning related to them. They decorates one’s body. But one should always get them done from a professional tattoo artist. There is a great misconception that tattoos are not good for skin. All the things we use in doing tattoos are sterilized, which come packed from U.S.A. The INK that we use are basically herbal pigments which are tested and comes with an expiry date.
