SHOWstudio kicks off its exploration into tattoos by teaming with Garage magazine to create the world's first permanent fashion editorial, using actual bodies as our canvas. The two day live broadcast - streamed across 30 November and 1 December 2013 - draws inspiration from the rebellious roots of body art, and its usual association with subcultures and tribes. Additionally, it challenges fashion's fleeting nature by creating an editorial built around an indeliable form of personal expression.
The stream sees Nick Knight shoot six models - Cara Delevingne, Georgia May Jagger, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, Liya Kebede, Marina Nery and Karlie Kloss - in looks styled by fashion director Charlotte Stockdale. Seven acclaimed tattooists - Scott Campbell, MXM: Maxime Buchi, Philip Yarnell, Freddy Negrete, Ien Levin, Henry Hate and Dr Woo - will then dream up their own interpretion of Knight's images to create real tattoos on six willing body art fans.
