A model’s job is to serve as a blank canvas for some of the most fabulous clothing in the world, acting as a human hanger, so to speak. And while the attention normally remains on the gorgeous garments, our eyes sometimes wander to the permanent art on models’ bodies – their tattoos.

In what seems to be a commonality among dozens of top models rather than a forbidden act, tattoos are becoming more frequent on the beautiful skin of some of our favorite runway pros. And with many models sporting more than one piece of ink, we’re taking the time to uncover what they all mean and how many hours in the makeup chair it takes to cover them up.

I stole my first pair of platforms from the Spice Bus in 1997 when Anglophilia was all the rage. Collector of vintage bags, vinyl and kitchen appliances. My dream of becoming a butcher is momentarily on hiatus so I can teach you how to wear muumuus and apply false eyelashes. Follow me on Twitter @CrystlMeatballs.
