Rajeev is a fellow artist and has a thriving tattoo art studio in Kochi. I have never had the pleasure of meeting Rajeev @rptattoosekm in person. Many years ago he happened to like or comment on an Instagram post of mine. His profile picture caught my eye…

I found myself rummaging through my ‘saved’ folder when I felt the itch to paint a few non-commissioned portraits again. It was the texture of the cap, the twinkle in his, and the specs that made me attempt this portrait.

I spoke to him last week over a video call and showed him the work. His absolute delight was so very endearing. I wish there was some way I could have shared the expression on his face with all of you. It just made my week!! I also got a virtual tour of his studio and his work. Meeting him in person in his studio is now on my bucket list for my next visit to Kochi.
