Meet The New Crop Of #FashionPeopleTattoos

Fashion folks are known for being a rebellious bunch. So, it's no surprise that they express themselves through some seriously creative ink. In some cases, these tattoos help establish their personal brand. There's Marc Jacobs, whose encyclopedia of ink chronicles his relationships, influences, and his life motto (it's "Shameless," in case you were wondering). And then there's Cara Delevigne, who sets off a mini-media frenzy each time she hits the parlor — especially when she's got a model bestie in tow.
If you're not getting yourself tatted-up anytime soon, you can live vicariously through fashion's most influential ink-lovers. From delicate doodles to elaborate facial designs, these designers, models, and bloggers have the rebellious art down pat. Click ahead for our favorite insider tats, and see if you can spot the next big trend.
