Shilpa joins the list of Bollywood stars like Deepika Padukone, Hrithik Roshan, Priyanka Chopra, Ajay Devgn, Akshay Kumar, Arjun Rampal and Malaika Arora Khan who have got tattoos and embraced the work of art on their bodies.
A source close to the actor says that she has wanted to get a tattoo for a long time. “Shilpa is really scared of needles. That’s why, despite wanting to get a tattoo for years, she kept avoiding it. She was also confused as to which design to choose. When she finally decided to get one, and told her husband, Raj Kundra, he couldn’t believe it,” says the source.
But Shilpa surprised Raj when she got a tattoo of a swastika on Friday (August 14). “The swastika was designed in such a way that it also looked like the letters ‘S’ and ‘K’ (Shilpa’s initials),” adds the source.
When contacted, the Bollywood actor said, “I wanted a tattoo, which radiated positive energy. And what can be better than a swastika, which symbolizes being one with your higher self. It brings prosperity and wards off evil and negativity. It’s just what I wanted.”
