If you’re anything like me then you probably have parents that do not support you getting a tattoo in even the slightest sense. In fact when I was still living at home they told me the worst thing I could ever do was ink my body and yet they fully supported me cutting all my hair off and dying it blue. Strange I know, yet I find that these are the differences between their generation and ours. To them, a tattoo is the biggest mistake anyone could ever make.
However for us Generation Y babies, tattoos are like the permanent accessory. They are a token of where we’ve been, where we’re going and who we are or want to remind ourselves to be on that journey. A tattoo becomes more than just an ink image forever embedded on our skin but instead a totem that can never be lost or misplaced.
This Fashionista was spotted proudly showing off her tattoo totems sprawling across her torso with an athletic inspired crop top. I was especially intrigued by the cheetah print she had coming down the side of her waist, a very unique and interesting way to represent an animal.
If you are fancying the idea of getting a tattoo, but the word permanent scares the living begeezies out of you, then try the alternative route of henna. It’s quick, easy, painless and best of all not permanent. If you don’t have a local Indian supermarket near you, Urban Outfitters has kits that you can buy for affordable prices. Either way henna or ink is a tattoo, so make sure that you don’t prove our parents’ right by getting a design that you’ll regret years down the line.
Spotted: Haider Ackermann‘s spring menswear collection featured male models that were tatted up from head to toe, making for a very interesting juxtaposition to the duchess satins and shiny renaissance jacquards they were wearing. Ackermann stated that he chose these types of models specifically for their tattoos, “They catch a moment with their tattoos; I’d like to have been one of them.”
