At xnepali, when we talk about tattoo, it’s tattoo on the body of Nepali artists. Once we posted some tattoo photos of true geeks. Now that is the past. The geekiest tattoo on Nepali artists might be that of actress Arunima Lama. Arunima Lama was featured as a nude model in the movie ‘Kina Kina’. The movie features two tattooed actresses – Arunima and actress Karishma Manandhar (you can watch ‘Kina Kina’ here).
Let me start with a video report on tattoos on Nepali actress:
In a report that inked women are considered sluttier than the ones without them, Arunima Lama wrote, “I’m so confused. How can getting inked change a girls persona. Does the ink have some kind of magical powers to change her from a good girl to bad?” Arunima says, the ink is amazing and says women with tattoos are amazing in every way. She believes, every tattoo have some hidden meanings and a lots of memories. Arunima adds, she is “proud to be in the inked category.”
In addition to inking, Arunima is also a fan of piercing. She has pierced various places in her face including her cheeks, nose and ears. The following photo shows the tattoo on her back.
It seems, the director and producer of ‘Kina Kina’, Ukesh Dahal prefers the actresses with tattoos. In his previous movie ‘Palpalma’ he had featured another actress – Sujata Sitaula who has a couple of tattoos on her back. Like Arunima in ‘Kina Kina’, Sujata was also featured in hot scenes in the movie. ‘Palpalma’ became the first Nepali movie to be given an ‘A’ from the Censor Board. Watch ‘Palpalma’ here.
I guess, I have talked enough about Karishma Manandhar’s tattoo before. Another actress who love tattoos on her body is Priyanka Karki. She has a tattoo on her back and on one of her legs. Actress Sushma Karki also loves tattoo. Sushma had trouble with the tattoo of her ex-boyfriend’s tattoo on her back. She had to make it ugly to conceal his name.
I am having a discussion about tattoo in my Twitter page about why people use tattoo and what do they think about it. I am embedding some of the replies I get there.
And, I remembered a case of actress Sushma Karki, who had to conceal the tattoo she had on her back after she broke up with her boyfriend, Niran Shrestha. The tattoo to conceal huge tattoo of the ex resulted into an ugly tattoo that she wouldn’t be proud to show off. Attached is the photo showing the tattoo before (on the right) and after (on the left):
Sushma’s case should be an eye-opener for some of those crazy lovers who might regret their decisions later.
Mausami Malla’s tattoo:
Mausami Malla hides her tattoo from the public. Although other actresses like Sushma Karki, Karishma Manandhar and Suvekshya Thapa have tattoo at the same location, they proudly show it, Mausami choses to hide it. The following photo show an accidental display of a part of the tattoo on top of her left breast. Although the tattoo is only seen in a small part, that is the only photo I could find of the actress that shows her tattoo. Please guess what the tattoo might be of.
