Back tattoo

The actress has a lovely tattoo on her back, just below her shoulders and it reads ‘ymc’ (YMC), and if you are wondering what these three letters stand for, here’s the answer. Samantha made her big acting debut in filmmaker Gautham Menon’s critically acclaimed Telugu romance, ‘Ye Maaya Chesave’ in 2010 and that changed Samantha’s life forever. The film also starred Naga Chaitanya, who is now Samantha’s real-life husband. As a tribute to her debut film, Samantha got the initials of the movie etched on her back, forever. And, we think that’s a beautiful gesture and a beautiful tattoo.

Rib tattoo

A tattoo that is seldom seen, but Samantha’s fan got a sneak peek into it as she posed in a sari some months ago. What reads ‘Chay’ is said to be the nickname of her husband Naga Chaitanya, who’s also known as ‘Chay’. And, we must say it’s one of the most well-thought of romantic tattoos we’ve seen in a while.

Wrist tattoo

The third tattoo on Samantha’s wrist, is actually the Viking symbol comprising double arrows which mean ‘create your own reality’ and is said to be similar to the one her husband has.

Tattoo queen
