Some of the fashion industry's most notable models are gracing the runways rocking their very personal tattoos. While body art might have once been hidden from view, models are now hitting the catwalk with the form of self-expression front and center. Check out some of the most badass model tattoos in the industry below.

1. CHANEL IMAN: The Victoria's Secret model sports a clothes hanger tattoo on her neck and her name, because she's like a walking hanger (aka a model). Get it?

2. ANJA KONSTANTINOVA: This beauty stands out for many reasons, among them being her tattoos, which include the word "meow" on her inner lip and a giraffe on her side.

3. JOURDAN DUNN: The gorgeous model rocks a quote on her forearm, "You owe it to yourself, set the world on fire…" Thanks, Jourdan—this quote will now appear under our Insta selfies forever.

4. CARA DELEVINGNE: The 21-year-old model has more than ten tattoos. She started the process with a lion's head on her finger, eventually followed by clever a "Made in England" stamp on her foot.
