After much deliberation, Ajay Devgan has decided to take the plunge and get his daughter Nysa's name tattooed on his back. Says a source close to the actor, "Ajay's very keen on getting a tattoo. He's seen Rohit Shetty and Sanjay Dutt's tattoos and was quite impressed by them. This time, when Aalim (who styles Ajay's hair and owns a tattoo parlour) came to Goa for Rohit's All The Best, Ajay expressed his desire to have one too."
Devgan has been in talks with Aalim the last couple of months about the size and style of tattoo he wants. The only thing he is sure of is: that he wants it to be simple and unassuming — like the man himself. The source adds, "He adores Nysa and wants to have her name tattooed (most probably) on his back. Ajay hasn't gone for a tattoo earlier as he didn't want to be part of a crowd. He decided on his daughter's name as she's most precious to him and he will carry her with him wherever he travels." Akshay Kumar too has his son Aarav's name inked on his back.
Aalim says, "Ajay's loves fast and expensive cars, designer watches, spacious homes — he's the quintessential Marlboro guy — so yes, getting a tattoo was something he always wanted. We have been in discussion for months." Apparently, Ajay asked him to draw some designs and show them to him when he came to Goa to do Sanju's tattoos. "Ajay doesn't want to flaunt tattoos out of shauq but do something meaningful and personal. He's also very shy and might change his mind at the last moment."
Nysa's name will be tattooed in either English or Devanagari with an Arabic touch. The design will be simple — yet with little touches that Devgan will approve of when Aalim flies down to meet Dutt and Devgan next month in Goa.
