Shown here is the world's most expensive tattoo. South African model, Minki van der Westhuizen is sporting 7.2 million South African rands or US$924,000 worth of diamonds.
The temporary tattoo took 8 painstaking hours to apply 612 Shimansky Ideal Cut 0.5 diamonds with a water based adhesive. Somehow, I didn't think she was going to spend the rest of her life with the diamonds!
For those who aren't so flush with money, tiny jewel piercings are used to compliment small tattoos. The jewel is attached with a "body rivet". This kind of combination skin implant and tattooing is getting popular. (Update : The body rivet refers to Skindiver implants which are smaller than dermal anchors).
Diamonds too expensive? Too chicken for piercings? Then check out the Backtacular crystal adhesive patches from Kimberlilyonline! These are designed to be worn with low rise jeans! Their byline - "Hindsight is more than 20/20, so be Backtacular"
