Style is most often associated with fashion and labels, and like art it is subjective, but certain people just ooze style regardless of the clothes they wear. Style goes much deeper, it’s internal… leaving clothing as the accessory of style and not its catalyst. People with exceptional style have a special bravado, attitude and confidence. Clothing trends are safe place for the masses – going outside of the trend box can too risky for the fashion fearful. However, for those brave and bold, personal style is what sets one ahead of curves, set trends, and remain the inspirational elite. The 5 following tattooed guys are some of the most stylish guys on instagram; follow my style icons that move effortlessly from clean and classic to fashion forward.

Alyasha Owerka-Moore has been a style influencer since the 90s. From building brands to strategic advising, Aly is a pioneer brand ambassador. Aly got his first tattoo in New York in 1991 for his 21st birthday at a friends house, as tattoo shops were still illegal back then. Equal parts rockabilly, street, and 50’s doo-wop, this skateboarding style icon is all things cool; his supreme brand knowledge ranges from punk rock, to hip hop, to American pop culture.

Diego was first tattooed at 15 in Spain, and is often referred to as the real most interesting man in the world.
