Fashion Tattoos

Chiara Ferragni

In November 2014 Chiara Ferragni added a tattoo of red lips on her right ring finger to match the eye tattoo which she already had on her opposite hand.  She has used both eyes and lips in her designs for the Chiara Ferragni collection but the eyes seem to be more popular with customers and are much more common in her recent collections than the red lips are.


Gabi DeMartino

Gabi DeMartino has a tattoo on her left ankle featuring three of the flower logos from designer Louis Vuitton’s iconic monogram print. She was inspired by fellow YouTuber Jeffree Star, who has Louis Vuitton logos on his knuckles.

She chose this design simply because she likes the way it looks, along with the bow on her wrist that she got at the same time.  She got both tattoos in March 2018 as the weather was beginning to heat up and she thought that an ankle tattoo would look great with her spring and summer shoes.  In her vlog she explained:

I’ve only ever got meaningful tattoos, so I’ve never got a design tattoo or one that just looks cute. So I’m going to get those little Louis Vuitton flowers on my ankle so that when I wear heels it looks super cute….These are tattoos I’ve thought about for a long time now and I just want to go ahead and get them done.  I want them for summer — summer’s like my favorite.

She thinks that it’s fine to get a tattoo just for its appearance, and wrote on her instagram:

“Never got a tattoo before that was just for looks/fun. My tattoos that I have are all meaningful so it was super fun to get a small lil design that means nothing. And that’s totally okay!”

Gabi loves high-end fashion and posts luxury haul videos, so it’s no surprise that she’s got a lot of Louis Vuitton items in her million dollar closet.  And we mean a lot — she’s got at least 13 LV bags. In the monogram print she has a suitcasetravel bagspeedy handle bag ($1,000), mini backpack ($1,960), popincourt satchelsaint cloud crossbody, and a toiletry bag ($650). In the Damier checkerboard print she’s got the keepall travel bag ($1,840), neverfull tote bag ($1,320), sperone backpack ($1,950), eva clutchcosmetics pouch ($375), and zippy wallet ($805). She wears Louis Vuitton clothing as well.  We’ve seen her in a bikinidenim jacket ($1,580), hoodie, blue scarf ($590), pink scarf ($590), and silk scarf.  She even has a Louis Vuitton monogram print pillow in her closet.  All in all, that’s around $20,000 in merchandise.  So it’s safe to say that she was already very committed to the brand before she got it inked.


Chiara Ferragni

Chiara Ferragni has a tattoo of an eye on her left ring finger.  Eyes have become synonymous with her fashion brand Chiara Ferragni Collection, which started out making shoes and has now included eyes in the designs for everything from bikinis to phone case.  She told Female:

I created @chiaraferragnicollection in 2013 and it’s growing like crazy. I designed this blue eye for the first collection because eyes are the feature that I love the most in a person and it became iconic, it’s the logo of the brand now.

Eyes are a common tattoo motif since “evil eye” talismans are thought to ward off evil in many cultures.  Chiara has confirmed that the tattoo does have some superstitious meanings to her, but wouldn’t elaborate on it, telling Glamour:

I really liked the aesthetic. The most iconic piece of my shoe line, Chiara Ferragni Collection, is the blinking eyes. There is a secret meaning about it I won’t tell. I am Italian, so I am pretty superstitious :)

She loves the look of eyes and has been known to wear eye jewelry from many different brands, not just her own.


Chiara Ferragni

In May 2013, Chiara Ferragni got this tattoo on her forearm that says “Muse.” A muse is someone who inspires an artist, and as a famous fashion blogger Chiara is surely a muse to many designers.

She actually sold necklaces inspired by her “Muse” tattoo as part of her limited edition Caia Jewels collection.


Jasmine Sanders

Jasmine Sanders has some hidden finger tattoos on her right hand.

Her pinky finger says “swear” to symbolize making a pinky swear, which is when you link pinkies with someone while making a promise so that you both know it’s serious.

On her ring finger is a tiny clothes hanger.  “It finally seems like models are longer just considered human hangers,” she told Allure. “We love being muses for our clients but also want them to let us speak sometimes and show our personalities.”  Jasmine is part of the new wave of models who are establishing themselves as celebrities through social media, where she is on control of her own image.
