    Default Which of these perfume tattoos would YOU wear?

    In recent days, DD has had us watching episodes of Ink Master, a competition reality show about tattooing. (I would not care for any tats myself, but a bottle on the wrist would seem apropos for some of you.) Out of curiosity, I Googled "perfume tattoo" as an image search yesterday, and I thought you might be entertained by the results. Since I don't have permission to post the images, I'll just have to send you to the search link: http://images.google.com. Are you tempted or have you already taken the step?

    None, for crying outloud. Not surprising for you, is it? Love.

    None, though I quite liked this design.





    If I were to actually have one done it would probably be this

    I wouldn't get any perfume bottle tattoos, not to my liking, although I have two tattoos and plans for more.

    No....not for me!
    It's interesting that the images are mostly for boudoir type bottles with bulb sprayers.
    Most perfumistas & perfumistos know that bulb sprayers are notoriously bad for fragrance.

    I noticed that too ... I am intrigued by the ones that have an interesting twist, like a skull in the bottle. What does that say about me? LOL But no, I don't have any tats, nor do I have any plans for to get one.

    You dears continue to crack me up. No wonder I adore you.

    With the popularity of chunky necklaces, I think I'd rather have a jeweler glom together some actual miniature bottles of perfume into a necklace I could remove rather than express my love of perfumes through flesh adornment. In reality, I don't wear jewelry either, so it's all academic.

    You know, that's actually great looking. I'm surprised how appealing it is -- although it strikes me as a purely manly piece of art. Now I'm surprised by my sexism.

    Interesting! But you'd think that people would be pickier about the graphics they put on their bodies -- so many ugly designs of "generic bottle with atomizer bulb", ick.... Didn't see any classic bottles or gorgeous designs... (though Jon found a pretty good one!)


    Edit: oh, nice one, alfarom! That's beautiful!

    None, but they are hilarious! I never ceased to be amazed by body art. The other day I went to the deli and the big burly guy at the counter had scenes from Wizard of Oz on his arms! Dorothy and Toto and even the Glinda! I asked and he said he still reads the Baum books.

    generally not a fan of most tats except the very indigenous native ones, like those of the Maori. But i heartily approve of the mitsouko one alfarom posted- it's just got a classic graphic look that's very appealing.

    Rubegon, I'm a dimwit. Is that flopped and repeated Guerlain G? Whatever it is, it's pretty.

    Default Re: Which of these perfume tattoos would YOU wear?

    The perfumes I wear everyday are already a kind of tattoo: a three-dimensional (sillage) projection of art.

    Default Re: Which of these perfume tattoos would YOU wear?

    None. Perfumes at least aren't permanent. I guess you could say tattoos aren't permanent either but it'd sure cost and hurt a whole lot more to get them removed.

    You are not! It is the Guerlain logo, I suppose. It took a while for me to notice it, but now I see it everywhere. It's in that little circle near the top of the box front of most current Guerlains, molded into the cap of some, a single one of the Gs is in the little metal clasps holding the knot on the parfum and vintage splash bottle string seals, on many labels, etc,
