Taking to her Instagram handle, Taapsee shared a picture of herself flaunting the tattoo on the days of preparation for Pink and elaborated in the caption, “The first tattoo trial of Pink. The idea was to find a design which resonates with the situation of Minal. A bird who wants to open her wings and fly. A bird who comes in her own elements by the end of it all. It was a pleasant surprise for me to know that post the film’s release there were many girls who reached out to tattoo artists to get the similar tattoo done on them. I am myself a tattoo loving person provided it’s something that is attached to the person’s personality and not just a random design. I have 2 tattoos on me and had it not been this acting profession I would’ve probably gotten a third one on the nape of my neck by now #Throwback #Archive #QuarantinePost (sic).” Also Read - Taapsee Pannu Backs Anurag Kashyap Against Sexual Allegations Levelled By Payal Ghosh
