Would you pay nearly £1000 to have your SHOES tattooed? We would.
Love these shoes from British designer Oliver Sweeney & Celebrity tattoo artist Henry Hate.
Henry Hate, who is well known for his tattoo work on stars such as Boy George, Franz Ferdinand, Amy Winehouse & the beautiful fashion designer Alexander McQueen (rumour has it that Mcqueen would send his soon to be dumped boyfriends to get tattooed by Henry just before they’d get dumped).
“I’m keen to be injecting some fresh attitude, creativity and originality into men’s footwear. Oliver Sweeney shoes are an unexpected but stunning canvas to deliver my work on.” says Henry Hate.
Creating your Oliver Sweeney tattoo item begins with you choosing from Oliver Sweeney brogues, boots, wallets, bags or leather hip flasks, all of which can all be inked.
Tan leather is recommended as the best colour to ensure your design is as visible as it can be. If you’re still feeling nervous about the commitment of your lovely new shoes being inked, you can also opt for the just the sole of the shoe.
The process carried out to tattoo the shoes is almost the same as tattooing the skin. See the video for a great visual explanation or visit www.oliversweeney.com/category/tattoo-products
A donation of £50 from each sale will be donated to the Amy Winehouse Foundation which works to prevent the effects of drug and alcohol misuse on young people. www.amywinehousefoundation.org
