oliver sweeney leaves its mark

When all is said and done, leather is still skin so why not tattoo it?

For more than 100 years, Palm Beach, FL, has been a safe bet to get through the ugliest time of the year in style. After spending the Christmas holidays on the ski slopes of Gstaad, Megeve or Aspen, the upper classes like to pass that difficult period between New Year's and Easter in warmer climates to keep both the melatonin levels and the tan topped up. On a par with other high-society winter boltholes like Saint Barts or Mustique, Palm Beach is to its…
