Hinduism pro livid over stars’ misspelled Sanskrit tattoosApril 21st, 2009 - 5:25 pm ICT by ANI
London, April 21 (ANI): A Hinduism expert has urged tattoo artists all over the world to get elementary training in Sanskrit and its culture before making tattoos based on the ancient language.
Rajan Zed, president of the Universal Society of Hinduism, is insisting celebrities who carry tattoos in the ancient language to go “beyond the fashion statement and indulge in serious study of rich philosophical thought”, reports the Sun.
The plea comes in wake of growing number of misspelled Sanskrit tattoos, especially in the cases of celebrities such as Rihanna and David Beckham.
Expert Mark Fielden had previously claimed Rihanna’s latest tattoo, inspired by the holy text of Gita, was “incorrectly written”.
Similarly, Beckham’s tattoo which is meant to say Victoria in Sanskrit is also spelled wrong. (ANI)
