Marc Jacobs is a famous case of turning the hip up on the tattoo market. Of course there’s more to mention on the celeb-tattoo camp, but I’ll keep it strictly to designers.

Yves Saint Laurent’s controversial Stefano Pilati understood the power of florals this season so he decided to bloom a new tattoo on his arm. (the story continues after the jump)
I’m not sure how that fits into his new Franciscan look, but I’m really curious to see how it will translate into his collections. Maybe the YSL Tributes’ blue soles will turn into flower printed soles next. Is it just me, or it looks like the new bouquet tattoo on Pilati’s arm is covering an older tattoo? (photos via)
