Tattoos Made Out Of Your Pet Are Now A Thing

by Grazia |

Yesterday we reported on how Barbra Streisand has cloned her dog twice.

In today’s news of pet-adoration-gone-too-far and umm-maybe-just-leave-their-genetic-code-in-their-body, you can now get tattoos made out of your furry friend's DNA.

That's right.

Skin46 have a created a new ink production method in which the carbon from hair is turned into ink for a 'completely safe' biogenic tattoo that'll bring the two of you even closer. Model Makani Terror was one of the first people to try it out, and opted for a huge tattoo of her cat created with ink made of its fur.

The press release reads: 'Almost unbelievable to some and even shocking to others, Swiss company SKIN46 is going to launch a huge campaign of body art shock and awe promoting the first biogenic tattoo ink made from a family member, friend, loved one or pet's hair - illustrating a bond that can't be broken that the world can see.'

'The idea of SKIN46 tattoo ink starts some seriously spirited conversations,' said Andreas Wample, the brand's inventor and founder. "Some think it's offensive, while a huge amount of tattoo lovers thinks it's an amazing concept... Tattooing needs this kind of fresh spirit.' I mean, why not.

Well, Mum tattoos are definitely about to get a lot more personal. But I think the fun doesn’t have to stop at loved ones, if any hair fibre works why stop at commemorating beings?!

Get your fave cashmere jumper, silk dress or woolly blankie bonded with you forever! The sky’s the limit people, let’s think big! Make a real fashion statement this S/S18 and BECOME the garment.

I mean, no one could ever call you underdressed again, because erm actually I AM the clothes thanks very much, I'm in a Dior gown under these F&F jeans and tee, and you’re the one walking around with your skin completely naked, you creep.

I may patent this angle – remember you heard it here first if you see style going beneath the skin in Fashion Weeks 2020.
