India’s Fiery All-Rounder, Hardik Pandya got inked at India’s Best Tattoo Studio
Hardik Pandya Tattoo- How it all began
It 22nd July, 2019. Yes, 2019. Before we even knew what Covid-19 was. The sales team was making calls, marketing team was working on campaigns. Just a regular, calm day at Aliens Tattoo Studio until the Indian Cricket team’s heartthrob, Hardik Pandya parked his car outside the Aliens Tattoo Studio.
How did this happen?
A week before the day Hardik visited us, Ishan Kishan, the IPL hard-hitting batsman had visited us for a tattoo. It was a sleeve tattoo that took a couple of sessions to get done. While getting a full sleeve tattoo at our Malad Studio Ishan was chatting with Hardik Pandya on his phone. During the conversation, Hardik showed interest in getting tattooed himself.
After browsing up on Google about us Aliens and checking our jaw-dropping tattoo art, Hardik Pandya promised to stop by for a consultation, and if things worked out, to also get the tattoo done!
After Ishan’s exit, the entire conversation was forgotten, schedules were tight, and we waited patiently for him to drop by. We got busy ourselves and went about our business until one day, we got a text message from the fiery all-rounder- Hardik Pandya. After exchanging pleasantries, Hardik fixed a date to come visit us!
Cricket is India’s first religion, and we’re not even exaggerating. Cricket brings us closer than any religion ever has. The Aliens family is no different. We worship the sport and we were ready to welcome the legend with utmost vigor.
On 22nd July, 2019, Hardik’s car stopped in front of our studio. After quick handshakes and some selfies, Hardik eased himself on the chair. However, the ease didn’t last too long. A few minutes after he entered the studio, assorted chants and vociferous calls echoed and seeped in with dramatic effect. They were the voices of Hardik fans. Hardik! Hardik!! They were so close to the studio that it made us worry about them barging inside the studio. There was no way we could handle the over-enthusiastic fans as their numbers kept increasing. Within an hour the number of fans rose to 200!
In order to disperse the crowd, we requested Hardik to appear before them and maybe take a few crowd selfies and group photos. It worked.
The Madness behind Iconic Hardik Pandya Tattoo
Hardik Pandya Tattoo at Aliens is a badass sleeve tattoo and it took us two days, long, patient sessions to finish the large and colored tattoo. Our guest celebrity showed signs of fatigue, and we knew that it was time to bid farewell.
Once again, the situation outside became disorderly. A new set of people enveloped Aliens Tattoo Studio. Hardik’s presence had somehow spread and now reached a point that made us wary. There were people everywhere, even on the walls and on the road. The situation appeared palpable.
Aliens Tattoo staff once again rushed outside, calmed the people down, and requested them that they move back and allow Hardik to leave. However, it had little impact. Hardik! Hardik!! And the chanting began once again.“I came here directly from school. My parents are worried about me and want to know my whereabouts,” said a young student.“We are waiting here since afternoon,” said another group of youngsters, jumping up to click photographs with their mobile phones. The words were profound declarations. Despite our best efforts, the fans showed no sign of pulling back. Inside the studio, our brains ran in overclock mode, thinking of ways to escort Hardik from the studio to his car. In the end we decided to offer our star customer and cricket’s most admired and adored personality, a mock Z security.
What a unique day!
