I’ve never had the desire to be inked but this season, I really do want to adorn my body with tattoos. Rodarte, Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel sent models traipsing down the catwalk with temporary tattoos. Chanel has taken it a step further by making the transferable tattoos available to the public. Starting March 2010, Chanel boutiques will carry the Les Trompe L’oeil de Chanel, a set of 55 individual tattoos that will retail for about $78.
This is Chanel I can afford. Can’t you imagine wearing a cute boat neck body-con mini this spring with the tattoo adorning your neck? It’s a bold statement but I’m willing to try it. I am more likely to start with the tattoo bangles before graduating to bolder pieces.
