The 25-year-old star sports tattoos of her former boyfriend`s initials and another one of an anklet.

After watching her in a remixed song in the upcoming film `Dum Maaro Dum`, India  Ink Invention got in touch with the model-turned-actress and requested her to visit their first- ever convention which took place here on April 10.

They were keen on her presence at the expo as they consider the `Om Shanti Om` actress to be the "tattoo queen".

However, the actress could not attend the convention as she was abroad for a film shoot.

The convention`s organiser Manoj Thakur, Partner at Par Excellence Entertainment, said, "Deepika`s absence was felt, especially at an event that she would have readily identified with.
