Industry Ink: MODERN's Facebook Fans Show Off Their Tattoos

By Alison Alhamed | 10/24/2012 2:24:00 PM


Shears, combs, bobby pins, dryers and irons--when it comes to showing off your industry pride, cosmetologists sure know how to do it: IN INK!

I have met so many hairdressers, including many of my friends from beauty school, who are inked up with their own tribute to the salon industry, and many are looking for inspiration for their next!

So I asked MODERN's Facebook fans (nearly 300,000 of you!) to post your salon-inspired tattoos to our wall-- and hundreds of you started uploading right away. We love it! It is SO cool to see the artistic work posted each day.

Here, we showcase some of the tats that got lots of "LIKES" and "SHARES." If you have industry ink you'd like to show off, upload it to Instagram, Facebook or Twitter using #industryink.

[EDIITOR'S NOTE: A HUGE thank you to our Facebook fans for allowing us to share your tattoos. We're more than happy to add your name to your specific image, just send an email to with the image number and we'll add it!]
