Shilpa Shetty gets her first tattoo - a ‘Swastika’


Actress-turned-entrepreneur Shilpa Shetty has joined the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Kangana Ranaut, Alia Bhatt, Deepika Padukone and others by getting herself a tattoo.

The stunning diva recently got herself inked with a ‘Swastika’ symbol on her left wrist. The 40-year-old mother of one shared a picture of her smiling at the camera as an artist inked a tattoo on her wrist. “Getting my First Tatoo a Swastika,” Shilpa captioned the picture.

The ‘Dhadkan’ actress reportedly had wanted to get a tattoo design for quite a long time, but kept mulling as she was scared of the needles.

The tattoo has been designed in a manner that it looked like the letters ‘S’and ‘K’, Shilpa’s initials post marriage. The actress reportedly chose the ‘Swastika’ design for her first tattoo as she wanted one that radiated positive energy. According to Shilpa, a ‘Swastika’ not just brings prosperity and wards off evil and negativity, it also symbolises being one with your higher self.

Priyanka has ‘Daddy’s lil girl’ inked on her right wrist, while Alia sports a tattoo on her nape that reads ‘patakha’ in Devnagri  script. Sonakshi Sinha too has a tiny star designed on her collar bone.
