Faces of India – 173

Getting a temporary tattoo done is one of the ‘must do’ activities customarily followed by most tourists when they are in Goa. (Black henna tattoo done very quickly at an affordable price) I was almost crossing the tattoo shop after waiting for a while to take the artist’s photo. He seemed too busy, after all this was his daily living. But as I was crossing I noticed the young tourist’s tattoo of Chhatrapati Shivaji on his left forearm. I was impressed with his adoration for this great leader. 

Faces of India, a series through which I intend to portray the various
characters of my country whom I met during my travels. See more here
