Getting inked certainly feels cool even though it is painful as hell. But when everyone around you is doing it then you think “what’s the harm?”. Some people get their parents’ initials, some carve god’s name and there are some who end up getting their partner’s face or name tattooed. But romance doesn’t last forever, and hence when these love birds split up, they look for different ways to cover up their mess.
