I thought I’ve been writing my way around tattoos enough but still there’s room for yet another tattoos and fashion article! This one has been brought to my Inbox attention (thanks, Tim).
I’m sure you’re already familiar with the absolute tackiness of allover branding. The stubborn way of logos sticking to our wardrobe as a warning sign skin deep fashion connaisseurs has now found a way to slip itself under our skin.
Even though I am completely appalled by the bad taste and undisputed kitsch-iness of getting a LV tattoo on your wrist or wearing the interlocked CC across your chest, fashion logos tattoos are an evergrowing reality. But what does it say about the wearer of such a logo tattoo? That (maybe) he/she is a devoted fan or that a logo tattoo costs less than a buying an actual logo-ed product from the respective brand?
I’m unaware of what convinced those who really chose a fashion brand related to ink themselves accordingly and I hope the proud bearer of such an affiliation sign will come forth and share his/her motivation and experience with us! But until then, let me bow down to the audacity of getting a brand tattoo! From Chanel to Lacoste, there’s room for everyone and everybrand!
There’s also a special way to scream your fashion addiction to the world: with couture-inspired tattoos! Stilettos, sewing machines, bows, platforms or vintage mannequins, your skin can be your business card! Too bad going out of business and getting your business out of your skin are such delicate and tricky operations! (via)
