VIBE & Ethnicity Models Presents: Model Ink


beheard / July 23, 2011

VIBE hosted a model search for the finest models out of Miami and Atlanta. Shoot by the famed celebrity photographer Derek Blanks, the male and female Ethnicity Models were transformed into pieces of lyrical artwork. With lines from famous songs by Beyoncé, Drake, Kanye West, Alicia Keys and Usher scribed by tattoo artist Melvin Todd all over the models’ faces and necks, the concept was an outrageously unique mixture of glamourous, high fashion and solid pop culture music.
