Anyone who’s ever toyed with the idea of getting leg tattoos but just didn’t want to go under the needle now has a relatively low-risk way to test the look: tattoo-simulating hosiery.
Gaining momentum in Japan, where women have long been on the cutting edge of legwear trends, these nude-colored stockings are emblazoned with a wide range of tattoo artwork — from a discreet design at the ankle to a more dramatic statement like a dagger piercing the skin or an image of the Virgin Mary covering a good portion of the leg.
