Kate Moss is reportedly working to become a tattoo artist

58

Kate Moss is training to be a tattoo artist so she can ink people at Glastonbury, her pal has shared.

Longtime friend and tattooist Daniel Casone has revealed that the 47-year-old model asked him to train her up — and has even inked him.

The pair have known each other for several years after she visited his parlor in Highgate, London — and she even trusted him to touch up her famous swallows tattoo by British artist Lucian Freud after he passed away.

And Casone has now shared her big plans for Glasto, which Moss frequently attends.

He said: “She said she wanted to learn tattooing from me so we can go to Glastonbury to tattoo people.

“She called me to go up and tattoo her and she ended up tattooing me as well, she gave me a ‘Kate’ and a love heart on my arm.”

He admitted to the Sunday Mirror that Moss “didn’t really” know what she was doing when given the needle, but he let her take to his skin because she’s Kate Moss.

He added: “It was quite painful because they didn’t know what to do and they went quite deep but I thought you know what, I don’t mind.”

The artist also revealed that singer Rita Ora has also had a go at tattooing him.

It is thought that Moss has seven tattoos of her own in total, including an anchor and two hearts, as well as the swallows by esteemed artist Freud.

He passed away in 2011 at the age of 88, but she entrusted Casone to give them a touch-up when they began to fade, with the tattooist admitting: “I did not want to touch his work but I did a little touch-up and freshened it up a little bit for her.”

Moss previously said of her Freud inking: “I mean, it’s an original Freud. I wonder how much a collector would pay for that? A few million?”
