Tattoos
So, I noticed that while there are many tattoo forums on this site (celebrity tattoos, models tattoos, etc), I have always been curious about fashion inspired tattoos. I am planning on getting some of Andy Warhol's early drawings for Vogue on my leg, but I always wait awhile before commiting to new ink =). After my friend got the Dior logo tattooed on her leg a few months ago I started noticing other examples. Anyone have any?


Obviously Jason Preston - Marc Jacobs's on/off again bf

from his forum - by way of http://ladybunny.net/blog/


also found this courtesy of inkedblog.com

ALSO! For all you NYC clubgoers - Didn't one of those Misshapes boys have a huge Chanel logo on his arm? Satire obviously.

I am looking though for more NON logo fashion inspired tattoos. Please share if you have any =)

A model has a small tattoo of a coat hanger on the back of her neck, but I can't remember which model it is...It's kinda cool

^actually, thats Amanda Moore

and getting a logo tattooed on you is stupid. Its just a label, i really doubt the chanel c's have had such a great impact on someone's life that they are worthy of being permanently branded into their skin

There's a whole bunch of models that have a coat hanger tattooed on them. I've seen it on heaps of different models.

say no to a logo tattoo. its bad enough its all over the clothes, dont permanently put a logo on your body. absolute stupidest thing to ever do.

art... I can see that being cool, logos... never cool.

I totally agree.

Art is fine; coat hangers is cute, but no logos please. I cant believe someone would do that.

True, it's like if I stamped Wal-Mart on myself.

Unless Wal-Mart saved you from a burning building, different story.

I want to do like that stripper and tattoo brett michaels on my neck

this idea of brand tattoos is ridiculous. I hit a friend with a bottle when i found out he tattooed a chanel logo on his hip. SO gay it hurts

The worst form of knock-off ever imo.

But, as others have said, a fashion illustration could be very cool. David Downton and Rene Gruau come to mind.

Great Responses everyone =)

THe coat hangers are so cute! I agree the logos are sad. I was thinking about it - kinda ironic that even a big chanel tattoo will cost you SIGNIFICANTLY less than a plastic chanel ring :p


This is the one I'm planning on getting - a tad gay but whatever. Its one of Warhol's early drawings for vogue.
