Here it is, folks: Cara Delevingne’s latest step in her ongoing quest
for global domination to be totally 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.
Tattoo artist Keith McCurdy, otherwise known as Bang Bang, is always a busy guy. After all, he not only inks up Rihanna, Rita Ora, Katy Perry, Justin Bieber, and laundry list of other celebrities, but allows his famous clientele to return the favor. But the star that’s keeping him busiest as of late is no doubt Cara Delevingne.
In the first episode of #CandidlyNicole, Nicole Richie visits Dr. Tattoff (okay, that’s just the nickname she gives the doc) to have her tramp stamp lasered off. Spoiler: It’s an upside-down cross.
For all the intense pressure, heated arguments, and hot young things we’ve seen over the past eight days, we kind of expected New York Fashion Week to go out with a bang. Instead, it went out with a night spent watching Lady Gaga get tattooed inside a giant bottle of her new perfume, “Fame.”
Most of the time models’ tattoos get covered up or Photoshopped into oblivion before their photos make their way into magazines, but sometimes editors let the ink take center stage. We’ve put together a gallery of some of the best shots of models like Freja Beha, Catherine McNeil, and Erin Wasson that show off their badass body art.
Someone take away his tattoo privileges already!
We were in full-on cringe mode yesterday when we saw the first cover of Dasha Zhukova‘s new magazine Garage, for which a woman had her vagina tattooed to resemble a butterfly. And that woman says she has absolutely no regrets whatsoever about the painful procedure, or carrying around Hirst work around with her at all times for the rest of her life.
Today’s StyleDish brings us more FNO hype (this time for your nails), lots of obscure fragrances you’ve never heard of (fancy wearing the same scent as Angelina Jolie?), and Judith Lieber handbags as goody bags — if you’re one of Kim Kardashian’s bridesmaids, that is. Also, a lustworthy accessory that will break both your wallet and your willpower.
Remember the sprawling filigree that covers Beyonce‘s back and arms in the fall 2010 ad campaign for Dereon? Now, that look can be yours. Though we’re having a hard time picturing the person who’d want it to begin with.
Sometimes, tattoos are used to scream one’s self-angst to the world — at least that’s the case in Peaches Geldof’s new ink.
No one loves Michelle Obama more than we do. But for the sake of the United States’s international supremacy, we’re going to need her to get a tattoo. We vote for a ring of the names of members of her family around her right arm.
There’s something deeply fascinating to us about absurdly, purposelessly expensive items. Maybe it’s the questionable novelty of a $6,747 cell phone or a $13,875 leather jacket or that even if we somehow we won Bingo and came into a boatload of cash, we probably wouldn’t spend it on something like a $924,000 tattoo.
Yes, you heard that right in proof that the recession was just a really really bad dream, luxury South African jeweler Shimansky has unveiled the world’s most expensive tattoo.
Being that so much of their job is to serve as a blank canvass for designers, it’s strange to think that so many models would have tattoos. But to our surprise, many of our favorites are inked up — some with tiny designs on their ankles, and others with more elaborate art work spanning their entire forearm.
Model Marloes Horst recently posed in nothing (literally) but a bunch of fake tattoos for a spread titled, Tattoo Me Beautiful in China Vogue’s May 2010 issue. We’ll admit it: we’re a little into the tattoo trend. But these tattoos? Not so much.
Trends come and go, but some things stick around long after the hangover wears off. We’re talking about tats. Of course, body art of the permanent variety has been around much longer than Britney Spears‘ tramp stamp, but it wasn’t until last spring that they truly went haute — making bold statements on the runways at Chanel, Rodarte and Gautier.
