From Bizarre Tattoos to Minimalist Monochromatic Logos

By: Courtney Scharf - Published: Feb 7, 2013
This week's trends ranged from highly unusual bizarre tattoos to striking monochromatic fashion photo shoots.

Speaking to the web's seemingly never-ending fascination with questionable decisions, a Russian woman's facial tattoo of her boyfriend's name drew in lots of attention. Though the photos of the procedure were rather graphic, the outcome is truly shocking. Such a commitment to body art is both impressive and fascinating.

In the fashion world this week, several publications released black and white photo shoots with various themes. Numero Magazine's editorial had a dominatrix vibe to it, while the Harper's Bazaar Turkey cover took a far more modest approach to this style. Both photo series made a strong case for keeping things stark.
