The rationale behind tattooing According to Sunny Bhanushali, celebrity tattoo artist and owner of Aliens Tattoos, “people acquire tattoos for a variety of reasons — some for aesthetic, others for spiritual or personal development, and some to heal from previous traumas or experiences.”
Tattoos are significant in many psychological ways, considering the permanence and pain involved in the process, according to Dr. Rahul Khemani, Consultant Psychiatrist at Wockhardt Hospital, Mira Road.
“People usually believe that tattoos are only made considering the aesthetic view or following the current trends, but it’s understood to be much more than that,” he says.
