Montblanc, the German luxury goods house and manufacturer of superior writing tools, has partnered with Samsung to celebrate the release of the technology giant's latest smartphone and tablet: the Samsung Galaxy S6 edge+ and Galaxy Note5. The collaboration saw the two combine their expertise for a limited edition series of 100 hard-shell covers. Each cover features genuine tattooed artwork adorned using Montblanc ink and applied by the skilful hands of Italian artist Mo Coppoletta at his London studio, The Family Business.

Samsung and Montblanc invited Highsnobiety along for an exclusive glimpse into the production process, setting up a make-shift tattoo parlor with Mo Coppoletta at the IFA technology tradeshow in Berlin earlier this week. The collaboration is just the latest in a series of works by the two companies as they attempt to bridge the gap between digital technology and physical 'analog' craftsmanship. Last year, the two introduced "fine writing in a digital world" through the Screenwriter collection, which is compatible with Samsung's Galaxy Note technology. Added to this was a series of fine leather phone covers, produced by Montblanc and specifically designed for Samsung's latest smartphones.

The Montblanc Tattoo collection is the flagship in their latest line of covers. Multiple variations will be available across Montblanc boutiques and selected Samsung outlets worldwide, available as either Hard Shells or Flip Covers. The accessories will be available either in a sophisticated black soft grain leather; in Montblanc's Extreme Leather, a high performance material specifically developed by the brand; or the elegant and durable Saffiano leather. A black alligator printed calfskin version of the covers will be available on Montblanc's website as an online exclusive.
