Can you imagine a tattoo that is valued at almost one million dollars? Why imagine?
There it is- the $924,000 tattoo
So why is it so expensive?
Regular tattoos are drawn using ink. This out of the ordinary tattoo consists of 612 diamond stones each weighing in at half a carat! The diamond tattoo was actually a marketing gimmick by a jewelry retail store in South Africa. Known as ‘Shimansky’, the luxury store has 8 branches locally in South Africa and 4 international ones abroad. The store serves some of the most famous clients in the world. They include Bill Clinton, Lee Ryan, Charlize Theron and Christina Aguilera. In 2010 during FIFA World Cup (which was held in South Africa), the retailer took the opportunity to market its brand. It created a ball fully encrusted with diamonds. It consisted of 2,640 black and 6,620 white diamond stones. In total, the ball weighed 3,500 carats or 2.2kgs and the price tag for it 1.7 million US dollars. This was followed by the idea of creating a tattoo out of diamond stones.
Outrageously Expensive Lingerie
True, if you are a man reading this, you might think for a moment there- what do I need this for?
So let’s give you a moment to gaze at the following picture and get the idea… are we there yet?
Victoria’s Secret has created many $1 million+ bras over the years as part of their “Fantasy” line, none were ever as extravagantly expensive as the $12.5 million diamond-encrusted bra worn by non-other than Heidi Klum herself in the 2001 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show. Followed by Gisele in 2005, wearing the same price tag for yet another Fantasy Bra made with Diamond and over 300 hours of labor. Which fits best? You can be the judge of that.
“We all live in an Orca Submarine…”
Feeling like a day at the beach, millionaire style?-this privately owned submarine is a great way to go!
This is the streamlined, two-person watercraft that breaches and submerges just like the Orca! It can speed up to 50 mph over the water’s surface and it can cruise up to 25 mph while submerged! The Cost? Around $100,000 at least! Not an Orca fan? No problem- these amazing ‘Seabreachers’ come in several designs including a shark, a dolphin and even a NASA craft design!

The future is already here, and if you have the right cash flow suited a Millionaire, you too can take movies such as ‘Avatar’ to the next level!
Introducing – ‘KURATAS‘- The Wearable Robot!
This incredible machine is the invention of Japan-based Suidobashi Heavy Industry. The 13 feet high robot, which users can board and control in an armored cockpit, weighs 4, 5000 kg and can move at around 10 km/h. It was unveiled in 2012 to much hype, but with the prohibitive price tag it hasn’t seen much uptake on the consumer market. Since the price ranges somewhere between $1 Million to $1.3 Million and not so many potential buyers from the private sector- this heavy duty machine is offered for rent. Here is a short explanation for the, soon to be millionaire who wishes to take one of these ‘big Boys’ for a ride;
‘Beep Beep’ with the’ BLING BLING’ – Shine on with a 1$ Million Car
Can you imagine a Mercedes Benz covered in diamonds? We can!
Originally owned by Saudi Prince Al Waleed- the ‘Diamond’ encrusted car was on display in a car show back in 2009. This car is covered in over 300,000 Swarovski crystals which were encrusted by hand in a process that took over two week! Since then, several extremely wealthy individuals were able to afford such bliss, but hey! With few Millions in the bank, it will be an easy ride!
An Exotic Pet Perhaps?
Some Millionaire pet lovers might go the distance and ‘adopt’ an exotic, rare animal in peruse of lavish and extravaganza. Due to a recessive genetic mutation, nature has given us the white lion. Their white color is caused by a mutation in the same gene that causes albinism, distinct from the gene responsible for white tigers. They vary from blonde to near-white. This coloration does not appear to disadvantage their survival. Owning an exotic pet such as a white lion may only be possible for hardcore pet lovers with extra million dollars to burn from their asset because keeping an aggressive predator such as a lion as pet is expensive.
For about $140,000 can be yours to take home with you and White lions are almost impossible to obtain because the majority are born into zoos and not to private breeders, so your chances of owning a white lion cub are virtually nil. But, there are still those that manage to not only find a breeder willing to part with one but also come up with the cash to pay for the white lion, giving them the ultimate prestige when owning an exotic pet. The one thing they may have forgotten is that the white lion cub grows into a white lion, and having a massive jungle cat roaming the house makes the allure of owning a white lion cub wear off pretty quick.
Best Portable Home fit for a Millionaire
Think about it for a second, if you are a wealthy person and wish to travel the world while living in style and having the full comfort of your home a Yacht is the thing for you!
Take Andrey Melnichenko’s 394-foot mega-yacht for example. The $300 Million Yacht offers the essentials and much more as the Russian Billionaire travels world-wide and enjoys the lavished lifestyle fit to his fortune. The Yacht is named simply “A” and stands out from other traditional yacht designs since its shape resembles a Submarine or a battle ship at first sight.
We can go on about its details; however, we feel strongly that you should view this video, which doesn’t leave much room for doubts.
Walk in Style and Prestige
Harry Winston’s 3$ Million Ruby Slippers are currently price tagged as the most expensive shoes in the world for women. It boasts of total 4,600 pieces of rubies and worth 50 carats of diamonds and was made on the honorable occasion of the 50th anniversary of the cult movie. It took 2 months of hard work to create.
As for Men Shoes, Well, if you have extra $38,000, you too can own these shoes which are made from the skin of the world’s finest alligators and are highly durable. Tistoni is the brand of shoes that was created by Amedeo Testoni way back in 1929 and the techniques even back then were quite ahead of their time.
We are pretty sure PETA are not happy with this specific product, what do you think? Would you ‘treat’ your feet with such wealth?
A Phone for the Rich
Considered to be the ultimate accessory in the world, the Cellphone has become an integral part in our lives. So what differs a Millionaire’s Phone from all others? How about $8 Million?
Yes, the world’s most expensive phone is the iPhone 4 32GB Diamond Rose.
The sides of the phone have been studded with 500 diamonds. The panel is made of rose gold with the apple logo is based from 53 diamonds. The center navigation button is made up of a single cut 7.4ct pink diamond! To top all that, this phone is delivered inside a solid granite box, which is a very strong material used in golf clubs. We cannot resist the temptation of thinking out loud, “it may as well be the world’s most expensive Selfi as well”.
The Upcoming EuroJackpot draw will, in hope, produce a new Millionaire. With so many ways of winning and high winning odds, you too must make sure to have a ticket for Friday’s draw!
