Who among you has never thought about doing a tattoo!? I certainly did and, after a lot of thinking it’s finally time to go in a shop to get it done. You’ll wonder what this has to do with So Vain magazine, but I want to show you how tattoos and fashion are strictly connected. A tattoo is a way to show our personality and, at the same time, to decorate our body, just like a dress does. A tattoo is like a dress, or better a permanent accessory! Its visual impact it’s such that it’s often used during fashion shows to decorated the body of the models. Then tattoos are a fashion themselves! There are periods in which a tattoo on your back, on your wrist, on your arm and so on, are in fashion. Also the subjects go from trend to trend and everyone follows it, even though I don’t understand it. Tattoos are a very personal thing and not a fashion dictat.
Some small tips I’ve learned:
Be sure 100%! It will be something that will stay with you all your life, part of you, don’t take it lightly
Choose a symbol or a design that really represents you, not something just because it’s esthetically nice
It’s better to do it in places that you can easily hide, maybe when you’re older
Never do a tattoo with the name of a a boyfriend or friend on it if it’s not an extremely particular situation
Go to a serious tattooist, who uses sterilized needles and a good ink. Don’t try to save money on this!
Here are some images taken from the star-system with the tattoos I like the most Do you have one or are you thinking about doing one!? Do you also think that they are this closely linked to fashion!?
