The Illustrated Man November 7, 2008

copyright-nick-knight-ukcopyright-don-asbhy-uk1When I wrote on the Fashion Industry Network, that I was looking for story possibilities, Alain Merlo wrote me back with great excitement that he was an actor who would love to have a writeup. But it wasn’t until I saw his web site I realized what a treasure he is. Alain is an atypical actor and model in the most ornate sense of the word: he is an artist tatooed on the body according to the Japanese Yakusa style. LIving and working in Italy, he’s been photographed in Vogue fashion spreads and has walked down John Galliano’s runway. See Alain’s body as canvas for yourself, it’s a thing of beauty.
