UNUS Tattoo Tights Warhol

From 90s tattoo chokers to the dreaded Ed Hardy range,  tattoos have been a part of the fashion world for a long time.

But today, tattoo tights are sort of becoming a thing, especially in Japan. And we’re obsessed!

UNUS, an online accessories shop, is offering a range of tattoo tights, some that are very fashion centric. The online store is now collaborating with Buggy, an Osaka-based artist, to create their own line of tights. Buggy is famous for his portraits of fashion heavy hitters, like Kate Moss.

The first collection is titled “LEG x POP ART” and features tights with images of John Galliano (oh hello, rebellious pair!), Karl Lagerfeld, a moustached Kate Moss and an eye-patch wearing  Andy Warhol.

The grouping does include non-fashion influenced tights with images of kittens, which to the naked eye, look like real tattoos, and is a perfect option for us tattoo commitment-phobes.

Besides, there is something about having an image of Karl Lagerfeld on our leg that excites us.

The tights average around $26 per pair and can be shipped to the United States.

Would you dare to try tattoo tights?
