Tattoo love

I've posted many a times the love for tattoos that Anirudh has.

Couple of weekends ago he took out the Fevicryl paints that I had bought to make his school's holiday homework where we did some vegetable painting on a paper sheet and on a handkerchief. He shoved them in my hands along with a brush and asked me to make a tattoo on his hand. And of all the things he asked me to make Ben 10 as the tattoo! When I tried to tell him I don't know how to paint tattoos he would not listen and kept insisting "aapko aata hai" (you know it). I tried by all means ato make him understand that I cannot make a Ben 10 tattoo at all!

He finally agreed but only that I make some other tattoo saying "Aap try to karo" (you try at least). The same reasoning which I give him when I'm trying to get him to do different things. Very smart..nahi? :D

So I told him I can paint a flower, a butterfly, a sun and a tree and he can chose from these. He agreed for the butterfly on one hand but then asked me to make Spiderman on the other! I again tried to tell him I don't know how to make one and again I was given the same response "Aap try to karo". After I was done with the Spiderman it looked anything but a Spiderman. But then who cares as long as your child is happy! :D

So here are my first attempts at painting tattoos.

so cute! "Try to karo" And the tattos really look good. And the most important thing is, like you said, that the child is happy!
