In Hollywood, celebrities often prefer tattoos to express themselves. They are an extension of personal style and the ultimate accessory.
Ink can have the same effect as fashion trends. Certain styles or silhouettes become more popular after they are etched onto their bodies.
Kaia Gerber embodies that. Her fine-lined tattoo collection inspires us to add refined artwork to our bodies.
Unlike some stars who take a conspicuous approach to their ink, looking at you, Ben Affleck and your ‘Phoenix Rising’ back tattoo, Gerber operates under a ‘less is more’ approach, with her ten-plus collection of tattoos dainty, understated and rarely seen.
Gerber, who debuted her first tattoo as a cursive image hidden inside her arm spelling her middle name, Jordan, has since enhanced her features with small pieces inspired by art and has even got matching tattoos to her fellow supermodels.
