Tattoo Designs | As one of the world’s foremost designers of calligraphic tattoos in Sanskrit and other South Asian languages I receive a lot of requests. I take pride in each and every design and am happy to work with you.

How to Order | If you are wanting a word or short phrase in any script or language developed into a design, click on the tab above and fill out the form. You will hear back from me within 24 – 48 hours. I offer this procedure to make the process quick, easy and affordable, while making sure you get something you really like. I have used this system for many years and found that it works very well.

Note: Technology is not perfect. If you do not hear back from me within 48 hours, please email me directly at

The design process:

Let me know what you are looking for (by filling out the form above):

  1. Language and/or script (see list of languages at the bottom of this page)
  2. Do you need translation done
  3. Size or dimension of the actual tattoo
  4. Do you need colour in your design?
  5. Examples of designs you like — from my website or from elsewhere

I will contact you to work out the exact details of your design request, pricing, timeline, etc.

What you receive:

  • 5 or more designs in black and white delivered via email. If you need colour I typically work on that after the design is approved.
  • If you need minor edits or changes to the one design you like best, that is also included.
  • All designs are delivered via high-resolution PDF or JPG files.
  • Please note: As part of my design process I create a large number of variations and send the best of those to you.  It is not cheaper to ask for fewer designs!


My fee for this

  1. My minimum fee for this service is typically US$175.00, although for simple jobs I am sometimes able to offer a discount.
  2. Translation service is often included in this price, but I will let you know in advance if an additional charge is required.
