Now, however, designers such as Chanel have created a painless style stamp that won’t scar you for life – or your bank balance. From 1st March, Chanel tatoos, which depict flowers, beads and […]

The historical weight attached is an incomprehensible mix of Victorian and punk former times, transforming us from the skinhead and Goth subcultures of […]
