Cara Delevingne Wants to be ‘Covered in Tattoos’

Look out, Rick Genest. 21-year-old model-turned-slashie Cara Delevingne is looking to add another another job title to her resumé — Amazing Painted Lady.

At least that’s what her latest tattoo artist reckons. Daniel Tucci, who inked the Southern Cross on her ear and the number 12 in Roman numerals on her side during Cara’s recent trip to Brazil, has divulged to the Metro, “She loves tattoos and isn’t going to stop, she wants to be covered in tattoos eventually.” The ‘XII’ peeked out from Delevigne’s orange dress during her DKNY shoot in Times Square on Sunday.

But don’t worry about our favorite Instagrammer’s new role impinging on her social media duties, because obviously her tatts (which now include a lion on her finger, a ‘Made in England’ stamp on the bottom of her foot, her mother’s name Pandora on her inner bicep and these two latest works) mean she can’t be a model any more.

Delevingne’s agent Sarah Doukas at Storm has reportedly received complaints, while a ‘source’ has revealed to the UK’s Standard: “Chanel have already expressed alarm at the quick succession of Cara’s tattoos and Sarah has told her to call a halt to it. As far as they’re aware, she has six, but no one is sure how many there really are. And with some of them in very visible positions, Chanel and Burberry have both expressed concern.”

Considering Chanel’s other past or present model besties include Erin Wasson, Catherine McNeil and Freja Beha, who all have far more prominent ink than Cara, we don’t actually think the modeling part of her career is in jeopardy quite yet. Entering the murder business, on the other other hand…
