A self-taught artist, Chirag worked a desk job and stenciled late into the night before opening Inks and Needles in the mid 2000s. One of the first dedicated tattoo artists in the country, Chirag has inked the bodies of countless public figures and is a regular face at tattoo conventions all year round. Goa Fest’s Best New School Artist in 2016 & 17, Chirag Jhala is one of the most experienced and sought after tattoo artists in India.
