Love Tattoos? Love Sanskrit Tattoos??
But afraid to get Beckham-ed???
We don't blame you.


There is a growing interest in Sanskrit text tattoos all over the world. While that is a very nice trend, it pains to see many of them either have errors, glaring mistakes or are in one of the most simple font that comes with the computer, but is not capable of rendering all Sanskrit ligatures (conjugate letters). Most of the times the wearer does not even realize the mistake. Enter - Authentic Sanskrit Tattoos.


Imagine this ...

Your anniversary (or any other important occasion) is coming up ... You want to give a unique gift to your other half ... you decide upon a beautiful sentiment ... expressed in an ancient language ... written in an exotic script ... are you imagining?

You get the tattoo from a cookie cutter, off the shelf translator site or worse, from an automated translator without knowing the language or the script. You end up with something like the pictures here, with errors you don't even know. You spend good money and time and endure some pain, all to get something that is not correct, or is not aesthetic.

OR Imagine this ... 

If you get personalized service, discussion about the context and usage of your phrase to understand the nuances of meanings, choose one or more fonts from an array of more than 15 fonts, or even choose to get it hand written or even better get a calligraphy done! To top it all, you also get an audio file for the correct pronunciation of the text, and any background interesting stories, tidbits, trivia so that when people admire your tattoo at parties, you have something to say and share.




Only if you are serious about your tattoo 

Seeing these common and pervasive issues, this service is provided so people who genuinely want a Sanskrit tattoo for its powerful language features and mysticism get the right text, know enough about it to carry a conversation with friends, and be happy that they have got the right thing. If getting a tattoo is just a fleeting desire to be hip, this may not be the best place, but if you have some deep connection and reason for the tattoo, you may want to contact us.
