NEBUZZ / TATTOO ARTISTS FROM THE NORTH-EAST
Posted by: NeBuzz Uploaded: 11-Jun-15





Tattoos are a statement of self-expression on the most intimate of canvas – the human skin. And lately, tattoos seem to be the new thing that is trending with everyone and everywhere. With TV shows, conventions and increasing social media pages for tattoos, tattoo culture is slowly moving from being a subculture into being a mainstream part of society. 

Tattooing has been an integral part of a lot of cultures in the north-east region of India. But along the way it lost its cultural and historical significance and was seen as a taboo. Though there are still some prejudices against getting a tattoo, things are changing. There is an increase in people getting and wanting to get tattooed and also a growing community of tattoo artists who are changing the tattoo scene with their incredible work of art. 

So, if you want to get inked then here are some tattoo artists from the North-east who lets their inked art speak for themselves.
