Mumbai: Katrina Kaif has decided to get inked. As the tattoo rage is gripping celebrities across the world, Katrina will soon be seen sporting abstract art on her body. And even though Kat loves tattoos, it took much convincing from director Ali Abbas Zafar who required the actress to sport tattoos for his next film. However, the inking would only be temporary as the actress is averse to the idea of sporting something on her for life.

As per reports, Zafar, who will be directing the actress along with Imran Khan in Yash Raj’s next untitled venture, had a very edgy look for Kat in mind. Confirming the news, a source said, “Katrina plays a rebel in the film sporting a grungy punk look. She will be getting interesting abstract tattoos, which will, of course, be temporary in nature.”

Recently, the actress visited a tattoo artist in town to choose her designs. The source adds, “Ali Abbas had shortlisted 20-25 designs, and Katrina chose abstract designs over animals or human sketches which would go with her rebellious character.”

A source close to Katrina reveals, “The actress likes tattoos but is scared of the needles. One doubts if she will get a permanent tattoo in the future. But for the moment she is comfortable to get inked temporarily. Anything to get in the skin of the character.”

Katrina confirms, “Yes we are using tattoos in the film, but my director Ali Abbas Zafar is choosing them.”
