BANG BANG! Tattoo Artist - Cara Delevingne Highlight/ Met Gala

Makeup, hair and fashion credits pour into our inbox during (yup) and after a glamor-loaded event---but this time-the work of a noted tattoo artist...Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy---impressed the most.

Cara Delevingne turned heads as she walked down the Met Gala red carpet adorned in a custom Chinese birds and blossoms-inspired tattoo by celebrity tattoo artist Bang Bang! The supermodel is no stranger to Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy’s work as he has tattooed her more than a dozen times, amongst them a lion’s head on her index finger and the word ‘BACON’ written on the bottom of her foot.  

 FYI: "China: Through The Looking Glass" Costume Institute Benefit Gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art took place on May 4, 2015 in New York City.  

in Stella McCartney (YAY)...this took all day

About Keith “Bang Bang” McCurdy
In just ten years, Bang Bang has gone from tattooing bikers on the outskirts of a Delaware trailer park to inking celebrities including Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Katy Perry, Selena Gomez, Justin Bieber, Rita Ora and Adele.  McCurdy has a tradition of letting these celebrities ink him back – a cartoon mouse from Justin Bieber, a peppermint from Katy Perry, an umbrella from Rihanna and a crescent moon from Miley Cyrus.  In late 2014, Bang Bang opened his eponymous flagship store in New York City’s Lower East Side.  Unlike most tattoo shops, Bang Bang (the shop) is run with the same philosophy fine restaurants employ—service first, service last.  Looking ahead, Harper Collins is publishing McCurdy’s first book, Bang Bang: My Life in Ink, and there’s a product line in the works.
