Catherine has also appeared on covers of multiple magazines such as French Vogue, American Vogue, etc. Catherine is known to be a tattoo addict and has the whole of her body covered with multiple large and tiny inks. Let us take a deep insight into her tattoos and explore their meanings.
“A few of them do. Some of them my friends have given to me and then some are from drunken nights when I got my sister’s name and a few friend’s names. Others are really completely random. For example, I was doing a shoot in a house in Carroll Gardens and they had a frog skeleton on their table and I was like ‘oh I like that, I’m going to get one of those.’ Come to think of it, I actually have a lot of bugs. I have a rhinoceros beetle because I used to see them in Australia when I was a kid a lot. I also have a moth, a bee, and a candle burning on both ends because I have a tendency to do exactly that.”

“There’s one on my body that I absolutely hate, but it’s on my foot so I can’t see it. All of the tattoos tell stories, so I feel like that’s part of getting them. I have friend’s names that I’m not friends with anymore which can feel a bit weird, but luckily I never get any ex’s initials or anything like that.”
