Artist Andrew Salomone embroidered this sweater for Amy Winehouse with all her tattoos in all the right places. It’d keep her publicly recognizable, but warm at the same time:

About 9 months ago I heard something about Amy Winehouse having health issues. Then I noticed that Amy Winehouse never seemed to be wearing a lot of clothes in any of the pictures I saw of her. I also noticed that she changed her look very often and looked drastically different from picture to picture. It occurred to me that maybe she felt like she had to wear revealing clothing in order to be recognized by showing off her distinctive tattoos. I found several pictures where it appears that even when she did wear warmer clothing, she was still forced to expose her tattoos.

    This is amazing. Especially because I’ve been looking for decent pictures of all her tattoos (costume party). Someone give a medal to the person who made this! :D

  2. she had a few other tattoos love. Like a shamrock, and something on the back, ect. I think you should look those up and add them on to it, the ones that are missing. This is amazing though.

  3. Can i buy this sweat shirt?
