Bags

After seeing Gucci’s Tatoo Heart collection hit stores last year I was rather annoyed.  They took a genre I loved, didn’t do anything inspirational with it, and they’re charging crap loads of money for it…………………….

Gucci = $4590 US!?

So, I decided to head to one of my favorite sites, Etsy, and check the lastest tattoo inspired bags they had to offer.  Here are some of the awesome results!

Tattoo Love

I have fallen in love with the work of Valerie Vargas.  She’s a tattoo artist at Frith St. Tattoos in London.  Her work is inspired by ‘old school’ tattoos but has a beautiful attention to detail.  I have always been a fan of old school tattoos  but she gives them a beautiful new spin by incorporating objects such as pocket watches, locks, gramophones, and hour glasses.  I’m going to spend some time daydreaming of my own Vargas tattoo and saving up for a ticket to England.  In the meantime I recommend you check out her work at www.valerievargas.com.
