You have a Chanel tattoo? You must be so classy!

We all know at least one person who is brand-obsessed. Just turn on the radio and listen to today’s mainstream rap and count how often they throw in a Gucci or a Louis. Here’s just one stellar example: ‘And we stuntin? like / Gucci Gucci, Louis Louis, Fendi Fendi, Prada.’ Ah, lyrical genius at its finest.

– Hey, you have something under your eye!

Chanel doesn’t seem to get as much attention as other brands in the music world, but it recently made waves with a new accessory ? tattoos of the trademark interlocking C’s of the brand, discussed in this Guardian article. The ink is tiny but distinct, appearing on the faces of models in Chanel’s Cruise Collection show this week.

Chanel will officially be launching the tat as a beauty spot later this year, so if you’ve ever wanted to use your body as an advertising space, here’s your chance. There’s a possibility that this new accessory could catch on with the public, given that it’s small and ‘classy? thanks to Chanel’s brand image.

But we’re asking you: is Chanel’s latest development a good idea or just one destined to fade like this spring’s collection?  Tattoo regret anyone?
