Actress, Mercy Aigbe has revealed why she has no tattoo on her body despite her fame and fortune, unlike some of her colleagues in the Nigerian movie industry.
The actress who revealed that her tenacity distinguishes her from her peers and colleagues, also stated that she is very greedy when it comes to fashion, clothes, bags, shoes and everything.
On how come the actress does not have a tattoo unlike a lot of her colleagues, Mercy said;
“Maybe it’s because I dread pain. But seriously, I don’t like it on me because I’m an insatiable person when it comes to having things like that on my body.
“Today I may like a bird, and the following day I’ll get tired of that and want to change it.
“And asides that, in my job, you’ll have to play different roles, so it automatically restricts the number of roles you can play in a movie, so I feel as a professional actress, you shouldn’t, maybe to an extent, have a permanent thing on your body.”
On what her fashion weakness is, the screen diva said;
“The fact is, I actually like everything when it comes to fashion. I think I’m greedy when it comes to fashion, clothes, bags, shoes, everything.
“This morning, a thought just crossed my mind that maybe I should do something for my die-hard followers, my fans, if they don’t mind, the clothes I’ve worn not more than once, very soon I’m going to be giving them out to them.”
According to Mercy, her recent film, ‘Àgbékẹ́ Aya Oba,’ is a story close to her heart because it tells a story of a beautiful, strong spirited Queen who refused to dance to play to the dictates of the society. She broke protocols and was true to herself.
