2015 has seen the rise of clean eating and clean living. The bodies in the spotlight - the lithe, tanned specimens we really covet - don't spend their time partying.

Tattoos have a long and rich cultural history but it seems that in the last 5-10 years they have really hit the mainstream. With the likes of Justin Bieber and One Direction having tattoos all over their body tattoo really can't be considered a rebellious counter-culture any more.
