Tattoo a trend?

It may not be the most accessible trend that we saw at fashion week. You can't pick one up in Harvey Nics, but this season saw tattoos adorning models from Lanvin to Louis Vuitton, Paul Smith and Bernhard Willhelm. Yves Saint Laurent marked this trend with a documentary film by
the photographer and filmmaker Ari Marcopoulos who followed the tattoo artist Mark Mahoney for his latest documentary, “No Way Back,” to commemorate the launch of the YSL men’s collection in Paris. Remember though, a tattoo is for life, not just for spring/summer 2011.
