    Default Fragrance related tattoos

    At age 49 I want to get my first ink. I can never think of anything Id want to commit to that much, but then I started thinking about something fragrance related, say violets, neroli and patchouli.. has anyone had any ink done relating to the hobby?

    I personally don't have a fragrance related tattoo, but I know Drake has a Drakkar Noir bottle tattooed on his shoulder....

    Probably never will but if I were to have a fragrance related tat, it’ll probably feature: oakmoss, oud, rose and violet leaf.

    Never had a tattoo of any sort.

    Maybe a logo from your favorite brand?

    I'd get either violets, or a bottle of Shalimar. However, I think I'm done getting anymore tattoos for the time being. Other priorities have superseded future ink stains.

    On the other hand...

    I might sympathize if someone had the Jean Patou logo tattooed and then told everyone it was the Chinese character for "joy".

    There is a perfumer, Laurent Bruyere, who seem to like a certain Guerlain perfume.

    Damn. Because I've wanted to get a tattoo of the Lagavulin logo for a long time. It looks cool either way, regardless of what the logo actually is from. But hey, I guess I better stop having kids. lol
