Celebrities with Indian Tattoos

 

Celebrities with Indian Tattoos     Most celebrities often get tattoos and also seem to be mystified by Eastern religions and such as Hinduism, Judaism, Buddhism etc. Besides some elaborate artwork of snakes and dragons, I have also seem them having tattoos in Sanskrit or some east Asian languages. I set out to look for celebrities who have Sanskrit tattoos and was surprised to find quite a few of them. Its not surprising that the most popular Sanskrit tattoo is Om. Om (or Aum) is arguably the most famous symbol of Hindu culture in the west and that probably is why its is so popular.

  • Howard Stern has an Om tattoo on his hand.
  • Katy Perry - have got 'Anuugacchati Pravaha', meaning 'Go With The Flow' inked inside the right arm,
  • Russell Brand - also got the same tattoo as Katy Perry when they decided to get married in India in 2010.
  • Tommy Lee  also has an Om Tattoo on his stomach. 
  • Alyssa Milano also has a wrist tattoo of the Hindu syllable €˜Om€™.
  • Sherilyn Fenn, a television star has an Om tattoo on her forearm
  • Angelina Jolie has a Sanskrit blessing in the Cambodian language, which she has said is to honor her first adopted son, Maddox.
  • David Beckham has the his wife Victoria's name tattooed on his arm.
