Design Miami will feature it's first ever pop-up tattoo parlor courtesy of organizers Tobias Wong, Joseé Lepage, and Aric Chen and tattoo designers Vito Acconci, Yves Behar, Tord Boontje & Andrew Allenson, 5.5 Designers, Hella Jongerius, KAWS, Juergen Mayer, and Lawrence Weiner. Only one design will be offered as a temporary tattoo, and aside from that, remember this stuff is permanent! The images above are a sampling of the eight commissioned designs to be inked, for reals, into the skin of real live design groupies by a licensed professional over a three day period. The resulting activity will answer the curators' one burning question: How far are art and design lovers willing to go?
As Long as it Lasts

Jeannie is a true jack-of-all trades, looks forward to a day gone swimmingly, and finds joy in all things awesome. Brilliant art, rocking the renegade music scene, conjuring up haute designs, other people's hot designs, tasty salad, trashy magazines and unicorns are some of the many things she is passionate about.
