Face is the index of the mind.
Every face tells stories worth a lifetime, each story different, and each story special. Our fascination with faces go down to the very starting point of the history of art, as well. Since the start of documentation of time and civilization, faces of all forms have been at the forefront. From drawing to painting to photographing to sculpting, to tattooing, the art of recreating a face on any canvas has come a long way.
In tattooing, faces or portraits of faces form one of major types of tattoos that people opt for. People often get inked when they pass a rite of passage, or want to mark a memory or bond for the rest of their lives. And nothing speak louder than faces. But as a tattoo artist, one requires a certain level of skill and expertise to produce truly beautiful portrait tattoos.
And believe it or not, our Indian tattoo artists are some of the finest portrait tattoo artists you will find across the globe. Check it for yourself:
