The fashion world rarely seems to have any shortages of ink these days with the army of tattooed models and tattoo-inspired couture, it's exciting to see each release every season from some of the most celebrated fashion brands to rising, relatively unknown stars ready to conquer the scene. Aside from Cara Delevingne, there are tons of other fashion insiders turning heads with their ink. Here's some:

Catwalk rebel Catherine McNeil's many tattoos have become her trademark as a fashion model. For a fashion model, one may consider Cat as ‘heavily tattooed,’ having had the whole expanse of her back and considered ‘unsafe’ zones such as the hands tattooed.
