Chris is returning to Switzerland after a year in Mumbai studying contemporary Indian art and he and close friend Geeta have decided to make their last day together memorable. They walk into a tattoo studio in Bandra where Swapnil Patil, the 22-year-old tattoo artist, offers them a mind-boggling range of designs. Finally, Geeta gets a butterfly inked on her upper arm with ‘Chris’ inscribed in the centre, while Chris keeps it simple with Geeta’s name on his wrist in black and blue. The five-inch tattoos cost the couple ∼10,000, but they think its money well spent. “This will remind us of each other,” they giggle in unison.
