Prernah in Hindi means “inspiration.” This work was inspired by generations of musicians, artists, poets, and other creatives who’ve been inspired by The Beatles. Her tattoos are styled after the sleeves of George Harrison’s Sergeant Pepper band uniform. The warm orange, peach, and red tones were also chosen to reflect the color of George’s uniform. It seemed only natural that this piece be given a beautiful Hindi name in tribute to George’s deep appreciation for all things in Hindu religion and culture.
I am incredibly proud of this work. Inspired by John’s white Yoko t-shirt, the lyrics to “Across the Universe,” and inspiring women who unapologetically embrace themselves every single day.
