Goa Diaries #3: Get Inked

#Travel  #GoaDiaries

I always wanted to get a tattoo. Permanent one...

I have been requesting my husband ever since I got married to get one... He doesn't allow. Yeah, people say that you should do what you want but sigh!

Anyways, I got the opportunity to get inked in Goa, at least temporary one and I would like to share my experience.

There are two types of tattoos: permanent and temporary.

Getting permanent tattoo in Goa is much much cheaper as compared to other cities. I have asked shops for prices in all cities I have even been (well, it doesn't harm in asking!) and Goa was cheapest. Rs. 500 per inch. So if you get a 2 X 2 inch tattoo it will cost you only Rs. 2000, which is also negotiable.

Talking about temporary tattoo, you will get different prices at different places. Even on different times. The most expensive I heard was Rs. 200 per inch and cheapest Rs. 50 per inch. Both promises of 1 month lasting. The rates are higher when you go to South Goa because of limited options. The shops are a lot yes but then it varies by place. Like on beach it is Rs. 200, on road it is Rs. 100 etc. 
The cheapest is in North Goa around Calangate beach and it depends on time. When I went on Saturday evening, the guy said Rs. 100 per inch but when I went on Sunday afternoon, same guy said Rs. 50 per inch. So you understand now...
Well, I was so happy to get the temp one at least and hoped for it to last at least 1 month. However, not even 10 days and it has mostly faded. He asked me to not rub soap on it and I don't. still it fades. So, if you plan to get one, keep your expectations accordingly.

I hope my post will help you get inked
in Goa.

Love and Cheers.
