Fans of the Kardashian/Jenner family, and there are millions of those out there believe it or not, are losing their collective mind after seeing the latest magazine cover featuring Kendall Jenner. No, this isn't another situation of a Kardashian balancing a champagne glass on their posterior. This time people are freaking out over the massive snake tattoo Jenner is rocking on her thigh.
It turns out that the snake tattoo is part of a series of covers for V Magazine shot by Mario Testino. In each of the covers an up and coming model is in the process of adding a prominent tattoo to their body. It's a pretty captivating series of photos to be honest, but it would have been a hell of a lot more intriguing if it were authentic.
Maybe Jenner is taking the snake for a "test drive" and we'll see the real deal on her skin a few months down the road. But more likely this is another example of an artist/model/brand trying to co-opt the aesthetic of a subculture they don't fully understand in an attempt to seem "edgy." Jenner and her snake "tattoo" will be in the dustbin of history even before the issue is off the newsstands. Too bad, considering the opportunity that lay before her. We'll keep our fingers crossed that Jenner, or another courageous model, takes that step in the future.
