Gucci has already introduced a Tattoo-inspired collection of handbags and Chanel introduced their temporary tattoos, so it’s no surprise that yet another luxury brand has jumped on the tattwagon by hiring Scott Campbell.

The LVMH company has collaborated with artist and tattoo master Scott Campbell to design some men’s bags for the Louis Vuitton 2011 Spring Summer Men’s collection. In addition to the leather bags which feature tattoo-inspired images, Scott Campbell also decorated the runway models for the show with temporary tattoos in the form of LV logos and with the same dragon and flourishes he used as imagery on the bags.

Scott, who has received much online attention for his cut-up currency art, is personal friends with Marc Jacobs, the fashion designer and Creative Director for Louis Vuitton. Jacobs sports several of Scott’s tatts (both Marc and Scott have his “Bros before Hos” tattoos), so it’s no wonder he chose him to design a few pieces and ink the models for the show.
