The popularity of the female version of the astrology tattoo has grown by the day and it is now on the rise.
The trend is not limited to just the tattoo parlours, with some brands such as L.A. Tattoo Co., and a handful of salons, offering Lilith as a permanent tattoo on their walls.
While most women opt for a tattoo with a heart on the bottom, Lilith is a different story.
“It is a more feminine tattoo, with more of a heart shape,” says a stylist in a tattoo parlor.
“The tattoo artists and salons that we have seen here are so knowledgeable about this, they know how to make the tattoo and how to do it well.”
It is a trend that has been around for years, and has a number of reasons.
Firstly, Liliah is a term of honour in Indian culture, meaning a woman’s birth name, which is the name of her ancestor.
“In many Indian cultures, a woman is considered her mother’s name,” says Ravi, who has worked in the tattoo industry for almost 25 years.
“Women are always considered as their mothers’ names, so it’s something that is very ingrained into Indian culture.”
So, it is natural for the word “Lilith” to be used as a tattoo symbol.
Secondly, in India, the word Lilith means “love” in Hindi, which can be interpreted to mean that Lilith and her husband are both happy.
And thirdly, the tattoo is a symbol of the family bond, which makes it a good choice for a woman wanting to display her love for her husband.
The name of the tattoo artist is a woman who says she is not a religious person.
“I don’t follow any religion.
I have a very open attitude about it.
I believe in the power of love and love is the way to do business,” she says.
While many people would see the tattoo as a sign of a man loving his wife, this is not the case.
“There are women who like the idea of the symbol, but it’s not the same for everyone,” says the stylist.
“When I first started doing the tattoo, I only had one client.
Now, I have so many customers that I know who have been through the process and I can offer a range of designs, from all shapes and sizes.
They all love it and want to be a part of it.”
For those who prefer a different interpretation of the name, it’s a simple choice: buy a tattoo, and add a “L.A.” tattoo on your skin.
