Million Dollar Tattoo

If a picture’s worth a thousand words could a tattoo be worth a million dollars?
That just may be the case with a tattoo Kate Moss has on her low
back. So what makes Kate’s tattoo more special than anyone else’s? Kate
Moss was tattooed by world-renowned German painter Lucian Freud.
The two met in 2002 when Kate agreed to pose for a nude painting
while pregnant. She says Freud was telling her about doing all of the
tattoos for the sailors when he was in the Navy. He offered to tattoo
her, and after a short discussion about what she liked, he tattooed “a
flock” of swallows on her low back. She joked with Vanity Fair saying
that “if it all goes terribly wrong, I could get a skin graft and sell
it!” It is an original Freud, after all.
