PHOTOS: Aiysha Saagar gets 'sexy' panther inked on body
Asked about the tattoos, she said: "My tattoos symbolise something to me, after all they will remain with me forever."
"My barbed wire tattoo represents all the hurdles and challenges that I have had to face on my journey as an artist. It is to remind me of who I am and where I came from as I do not want to lose sight of this while I grow as an artist, so that I remain grounded," she said.
"My panther tattoo represents my love for wildlife, in particular panthers. They are beautiful, sensual and very sexy. I also relate to these animals as they appear to be mysterious and reserved, which is what my personality is like when I am off-stage, as on stage I become a roaring Tigeress (my alter-ego). I love the way these tattoos make me feel and is a way to express my thoughts and beliefs on a personal canvas. "It is truely liberating."
