JEWELRY DESIGNER PAMELA LOVE IN THE TATTOOISTS CHAIR
Instead of a straight-up presentation, jewelry designer Pamela Love hosted the Pamela Love Tattoo Parlour in the Milk Bar throughout MADE Fashion Week weekend. The public and friends of Love have an open invitation to rock up for appointments with renowned tattooist, Patrick "Fish" King.
While getting inked by King, an arrow tattooed along her ulna bone on her left forearm. Love said "the collection didn’t make sense in a presentation situation." Said collection must be vaguely tattoo inspired, but more details weren’t forthcoming as apparently details of the collection are all secret and only buyers will see the pieces this season. How intriguing is that? Now you’re really curious.
"I’ve had the idea to do a tattoo parlour for a longtime," Love explained as the needle buzzed onto her skin. "I love tattoos, I have 17 and wanted to do something inspired by the collection that was more interactive." Love’s passion for the art form comes from seeing it as "the ultimate form of adornment", extreme jewelry if you will.
In the chair oppostie Love was a younger guy sporting a beard and Keith Haring style glasses. "He’s cute," I said. "That’s my husband," replied Love. I promised not to check him out in the elevator again on our way out.
