Are you a luxury brand shopper, with tattoos, that is always looking for a one of a kind pair of shoes? Well, you’re in luck! Christian Louboutin will put your tattoo design on a fancy pair of kicks and it will only take 3 months! For real though, check this out. Louboutin has a men’s concept store (with a tattoo parlor in each) in Paris, New York, Hong Kong, L.A., and London. If you’re seriously considering getting a pair of these badass shoes, here is the process you can expect:

1. You visit one of the locations above
2. They take a picture of your tattoo, they send the image to Paris where the designer himself reviews and approves it
3. Once approved you pick out the shoe, fabric, embroidery, colors and placement
4. The Paris team works on the design and then sends their drawings to Italy and India for production and embroidery.
5. BAM! You have a kickass pair of shoes that no one else in the world has!

“It started as an idea of a present for a friend, I made a pair of shoes for him embroidered with his tattoo. A lot of my friends have tattoos, I realized that it’s not only just a part of pop culture but a bit of a map on someone’s body which says something about people. A part of their life, like an armor or a crest.

Instead of carrying someone else’s crest on a loafer, I thought it would be modern armories, your own crest on your own shoe. Instead of a classical made to measure bespoke shoe, which other men’s shoe brands do very well, this is my modern approach to bespoke,” said Louboutin.

Who’s getting a pair? What tattoo of yours would you want on a pair of shoes?

People will know you are running your own life, instead of listening to them!

I kind of hate those... but I'm so in love with Louboutins...

The cognitive dissonance is too much.

I think to put tattoo on our shoes will give a new look to our shoes so I will do this.
