Fashion week who cares? we got tat’s.
Designers, by definition, are all about creativity, visual communication, and self-expression. One of the most common ways designers express themselves is by indelibly declaring their status as Homo Creativus in the medium of ink in skin. Like anyone else, designers’ tattoos are often butterflies, skulls, koi, Tardises, or names, but sometimes the ink is a little more graphic, speaking directly to the art, science, and people of design. Here is some of that designer ink; join me again in one week for the second half of this two-part series.
