This fall, two haute couture designers are straddling the thin line between tattoos and jewelry. Karl Lagerfeld models were spotted wearing tattoo-inspired bracelets and neklaces. And Kris Van Assche presented his models with real tattooed jewelry designs.

Tattoos were previously relegated to the outskirts of society, but with these haute couture adaptations, it looks like high fashion has finally adopted the tattoo phenomenon.

Implications - This delicate jewelry looks like the real deal. The necklaces that Lagerfeld designed are flawless with their intricate details, however offer a unique glimmer a real tattoo doesn't have. Kris Van Assche's models looked tough-chic as they trotted down the runway sporting tattoos on their chest, face, neck and arms.
