Tattoos are great for a range of purposes: Self-expression, art, advertising, religion, marriage and more. Tattoos, they say are not permanent. It lasts anywhere from hours to years. 
Though man is yet to invent technology that allows a “permanent” tattoo to retain its original colours and form over time without changing, temporary tattoos include any tattoo inks that are applied to the outer layer of the skin and which has not become intimately associated with the skin, as is the case with permanent tattoos. 
In Mokokchung, a wave of tattoo craze has been sweeping the town of late. Interestingly it must be noted that after the by-election, youth in parts of Mokokchung are finally fulfilling their dreams of getting a tattoo from a professional tattoo artist, which is rather an expensive form of art.
Talking to the reporter, tattoo artist Lemsendong of Art Galleria said so far 17 customers, all in their mid twenties, have etched their art on their body with many customers still on waiting list.
The tattoo artist informed that he is doing brisk business in Mokokchung and described the recently concluded by-election has been a blessing in disguise for his business so far.
