A tattoo is a marking made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment for decorative or other reasons. Tattoos on humans are a type of decorative body modification.
Tattoos have served as rites of passage, marks of status and rank, symbols of religious and spiritual devotion, decorations for bravery, sexual lures and marks of fertility, pledges of love, punishment, amulets and talismans, protection, and as the marks of outcasts, slaves and convicts. The symbolism and impact of tattoos varies in different places and cultures. Tattoos may show how a person feels about a relative (commonly mother/father or daughter/son) or about an unrelated person.
Today, people choose to be tattooed for cosmetic, sentimental/memorial, religious, and magical reasons, and to symbolize their belonging to or identification with particular groups, including criminal gangs.

While in the 1970s, the silhouette of fashion tended to be characterized by close fitting clothes on top with wider, looser clothes on the bottom, this trend completely reversed itself in the early 1980s as both men and women began to wear looser shirts and tight, close-fitting pants. Men wore power suits as a result of the greater tendency for people to display their wealth. Brand names became increasingly important in this decade, making Ralph Lauren and Calvin Klein household names.
During the Like A Virgin era, Madonna was titled the "Material Girl" and many young girls around the world looked to her for fashion statements.
The Thriller look was inspired by Michael Jackson's record breaking album Thriller. Teenagers would attempt to replicate the look of Jackson, which included matching red/black leather pants and jackets, one glove, sunglasses, and jheri curl.

Questo post è dedicato ad una stilista che ho sempre ammirato, per stile, carattere, originalità e molto altro: Vivienne Westwood.
Ed ecco qui alcuni dei suoi capolavori :)
This post is dedicated to a stylist that i've always admired, for style, temperament, originality and much more: Vivienne Westwood.
Here there are some of its creations :)
“The safety pin in the lip of the Queen was saying: you too can be punk.” Punk was very DIY oriented and Westwood and McLaren promoted the idea of making your own clothes – buying shirts and ripping them up, making them out of several large squares… An ideology Vivienne Westwood still promotes after all these year.
