Ink is definitely staking its claim on the catwalk this season—I’ve spotted tattoos everywhere, from temporary versions at Marchesa to the real deal on the backs of necks backstage. I asked model Karmen Pedaru to share the tales behind her tats.
On her bandaged ankle (hey, nobody said walking the runway was easy), she proudly displays her mother’s name, Kristiina, who passed away when Pedaru was a child. The first three lines from Nirvana’s song “Come as You Are” are written in script on her left bicep. Her husband’s name, Riccardo, is permanently penned across the side of her forearm. “He has my name [in the same place] as well—he drew the stripe under his [signature] on me, and I did the same for him,” she explained. And the fourth tat on her left wrist, Albert Einstein’s formula for success, is “a little silly,” said the super. “I don’t even know if it’s true.” (It’s based on the quote from the famed theoretical physicist: “If A equals success, then the formula is: A = X + Y + Z. X is work. Y is play. Z is keep your mouth shut.”) In terms of Pedaru’s career, it looks like the calculation has proven itself to be correct thus far.
