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 suitcase, travel bag, speedy handle bag ($1,000), mini backpack ($1,960), popincourt satchel, saint 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 clutch, cosmetics pouch ($375), and zippy wallet ($805). She wears Louis Vuitton clothing as well. We’ve seen her in a bikini, denim 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.
