The Girls (and Boys!) With the Fashion Tattoos

Fashion people take their tattoos pretty seriously. Since they spend their days scrutinizing moodboards and lookbooks, the style set approaches body art with the same critical eye. These things don't wash off like a poor eye shadow choice, you know?

But from what we've seen, all that obsessing pays off. The fashion tats we've spotted lately range from crazy intricate to graphic and bold—and all of them are incredibly cool. In the slideshow below we've asked some of our favorite inked up editors/designers/PR people to share their tattoos with us—plus the thoughts and stories behind them.

What do you think of the designs? Do they make you want to go under the needle?
