How weddings are conducted has evolved over time and one trend I’m yet to witness in Ghana is one that has a free tattoo session at the reception.
Yes you clearly heard me- A tattoo session as a wedding favour.
And don’t think it’s far from happening here.
In the US and probably elsewhere, tattoo sessions at wedding receptions is almost becoming a trend.
Here’s what happens, as part of the wedding planning, a tattooist is hired to tattoo on guests and the couple as part of the celebration to make it more memorable.
A recent story on Newyork Times details beautifully how a couple who hired a tattooist and planned for only a few of the 400-plus guests to get small tattoos ended up working on more guests
Nytimes also tells of a tattooist who has branded himself as a wedding tattoer- someone specifically hired to hold tattoo sessions at weddings.
Do you see this becoming a trend in Ghana anytime soon especially against the backdrop of all these baby shower, pre-wedding photo shoot among others that I trending now?
