All of this, however, was anything but simple. Born and raised in Chitwan, Shrestha has an educational background in pharmacy. Prior to his rehab days he had no experience whatsoever when it came to tattooing.
KATHMANDU, April 28: The ninth edition of International Tattoo Convention concluded on Sunday. The convention lasted for 3 days kicking off on April 26 at Heritage Garden in Sanepa, Lalitpur. The Nepal Tattoo Pvt. Ltd organizes the convention every year.
Tattoo making has always been a part of Nepali traditions. Back in the days, it was a cultural norm among the Rais and Limbus of the country. Now, it has assumed form like it has done in most countries – it is how millions immortalize memories, maintain faith and derive strength in difficult times. Tattoo artists, as such, take great pleasure from their work and so does Sumina Shrestha.
Call it a norm or a fashion, getting the skin inked with different arts and designs has always baffled people from quite some time. Some people draw the tempting art to call it passion while others just follow the tradition.
