It’s widely known that most beauty trends originate on the runway. Bold brows, ruby-red lips, disheveled hair; all had origins among the runway. There were a ton of original looks this year at Fashion Week, and it’s safe to say beauty devotees have a lot to look forward to in the trend department. One look in particular, face tattoo’s, were a popular favorite with designers such as Simone Rocha and Anthony Vaccarello this year at London Fashion Week and Paris Fashion Week.
Models were noticed strolling down the runway, sporting crescent moon and floral-like face paint; causing people to wonder if this was the birth of a new trend on the horizon. Although it might seem like it at the moment, face tattoo’s aren’t necessarily the newest craze to hit the runway. If you refer back to Chanel’s Spring 2010 show, you’ll recall models showcasing temporary arm tattoo’s, and let’s not forget Louis Vuitton’s Spring 2011, when male models sported a similar look.
The fact of the matter is, temporary tattoo’s haven’t exactly gone anywhere. They’ve merely been in hiding, waiting for their moment to come once again. Well, it looks like that moment has come. Even celebrities have been sporting the 90’s-inspired look. Musician, FKA twigs, is no stranger to the look, constantly debuting it wherever she goes. So what do you think, are face tattoo’s here to stay, or should they be banished for good?
