Pop singer Dina and Tatu's Lena Katina and Yulya Volkova are set to open a tattoo salon near the Rechnoi Vokzal metro station.
The idea occurred to them when the three girls met in the Millennium recording studio as Tatu was recording its new album and Dina her debut.
"Our creative union does not imply that I'm a lesbian," Dina said. "And for them [Tatu], that's mostly a PR gimmick."
Dina mastered the art of tattooing before she made her appearance on Moscow's pop stage, when she was living in her hometown of Nizhny Novgorod. The profession was her bread and butter back then.
As for Tatu, they liked the idea just because the name of their band means "tattoo."
As a start, the new salon will serve only Tatu fans and, later, if it proves to be a success, it will be open for everybody.
"It's no trouble for me at all to tattoo a profile of Lena or Yulya on somebody's skin," Dina said. "If it works out, such tattoos will become our salon's specialty."
