Among models, tattoos remain something of a taboo with most who have them opting for small, easily hidden designs. As Kim Kardashian famously once said, “Honey, would you put a bumper sticker on a Bentley?”
For issue No. 105, V magazine has some fun with the concept, pairing some of the industry’s Bentley-level models, Kendall Jenner, Carolyn Murphy, Joan Smalls, Lara Stone, Amber Valletta, Ellen Rosa, and Lily Aldridge, who were shot by Mario Testino sporting hand-drawn tattoo designs by Jenai Chin (read a V mag interview with her here).
As part of the issue, Chin created three temporary tats to correspond with models Jenner, Stone, and Smalls that are available to purchase along with the issue.
