Question of the Week

Tattoos — a forever body art; once inked in, it stays with you for life. Removing, as many say, is more expensive than getting one in the first place. So, what do you think about getting a tattoo? Taking into consideration that it is permanent, do you think the design should be thought out thoroughly, planned and then needled into skin? Or would you go for one on a whim? Why? Give reasons. Send your replies in not more than 200 words by Friday, April 25 by 2 pm to Features Department, The Himalayan Times, e-mail
