The event was organised by Velachery MLA M K Ashok on Tuesday, where scores of people stood in long queque to get Jayalalithaa's picture tattooed.

Ashok, who also sports her tattoo, said that the idea came up after people wanted to do a similar gesture to thank Jayalalithaa.

Though 668 persons were expected to participate, a little over 1,000 people turned up at the event, which was attended by senior ministers, including O Panneerselvam, he said.

The volunteers were inked with a picture of Jayalalithaa and 'Amma' in Tamil tattooed on their forearms.
