This is a memento tattoo, a keepsake for our client from Belgium, who was visiting India for the first time. The best souvenir we could think of was an Indian Elephant. The bold grey shades represents the strength of the elephant.
From India, military thinking on the use of war elephants spread westwards to the Persian Empire, where they were used in several campaigns and in turn came to influence the campaigns of Alexander the Great.
He was impressed by elephants. He took these into his own army and used them to capture the rest of Persia. There is uncertainty as to when elephant warfare first began.This tattoo was done by Pradeep at Astron Tattoos, Bangalore, IN.
