We’ve recently seen plenty of videos documenting hair and makeup, men’s facial hair and women’s fashion trends over the decades, but the latest “100 years of Beauty” video really takes the cake, with one woman undertaking 11 tattoo sessions in just one week to showcase iconic artists over the last century.
After Ohio-based Casey Lubin responded to a “crazy” ad (her words), explaining that she thought “it was a really amazing opportunity”, she wound up with tattoos ranging from florals a la Charlie Wagner to Sailor Jerry’s owls and Don Ed Hardy’s mermaids all over her bod to tribute artists from decades gone by. You’ve got to hand it to her for enduring all 11 decent-sized tatts, because that’s a fair bit of time and a whole lot of pain.
“I think it’s great that we can use our body as a canvas and it’s really cool that you can make art a part of your body,” she said in the video. “If your body is your temple you should be able to decorate it the way that you want, right?”
Right. But maybe think twice about getting your eyeballs tattooed. OK, everyone?
