Are Tattoos The New Nail Art?

We recently heard a rumor that nail art was dying, and after viewing the nails at New York Fashion Week we kind of agree with this statement. Show after show, the nail looks were pretty—but very bland. In other words, no crazy talons or Stanley Kubrick nail art. What we did notice were lots and lots of tattoos. Instead of stand-out nail art, designers Georgina Chapman of Marchesa and Tracy Reese opted for intricate body tattoos on the models. We also spotted model-of-the-moment Cara Delevingne‘s new lion tattoo, strategically placed on her index finger. And just days later, Miss Kansas stepped out in a bikini with elaborate ribcage tattoos.

Thanks to Miley, Rihanna and more, tattoos have become more mainstream than ever, and people are getting them as more of a fashion and beauty statement versus hardcore tattoo art. There’s even a breed of new faux tattoo artists for those who don’t want to go under the needle (remember these Dior 24K gold temporary tattoos, sold on Nordstrom last year?!).

Click through the slideshow above to see why we suspect that tattoos – temporary and real – are the next form of expression turned beauty trend.
