These Stunning Temporary Tattoos Are The Trend We’ve Been Waiting For


Can you tell which of these tattoos is temporary?


You can buy any dope sneakers or jeans of the moment you want. But let’s face it: the hottest style statement to make today is a tattoo, and embracing such a trend isn’t for the faint-hearted.

That’s why it makes perfect sense — as in, so perfect we don’t know why we didn’t make them ourselves — that temporary tattoos are making a “return,” with more grown-up options and top quality forever. Even Beyoncé is getting into the game.

No more cartoons and butterflies: When it comes to adult designs, a New York Times feature this week highlights the oh-so-real-looking options of companies Like Tattlya four-year-old company based in Brooklyn, New York (of course).

Founded by a Swiss designer Tina Roth Eisenberg, Tattly specializes in tasteful, bold and cool fake tattoos, as opposed to the “ugly butterflies and smiley faces” we had as kids. “It’s true, I’m probably a bit of a snob, but it was an insult to my Swiss aesthetic”, Roth Eisenberg Recount the New York Times. Tattly’s products, which look remarkably like the real thing, have been adopted by individuals as well as companies like SoulCycle and NPR.

And as far as quality improvement is concerned, starting inkwell introduced trendy temporary tattoos that last up to two weeks and avoid the fake peeling look. “It was impossible to find tattoos that looked real but weren’t permanent,” co-founder Braden Handley said in a press release. Quoted by Mashable. The company has raised over $50,000 on Kickstarterexceeding the target of $15,752.

If they’re good enough for Beyoncé… Tattoos from companies like Tattly and inkbox are joining the fake tattoo trend alongside flash tattoos, the shiny foil stickers that started to appear last summer and are still ubiquitous at music festivals. Latest sign they’re here to stay: Beyoncé unveiled her own flash tattoo line this week that includes “Beyhive-centric designs,” according to CR Fashion Book.

All new products can be added to the countless options populate Etsy (more than 15,000!).

High quality temporary tattoos couldn’t come too soon, given the popularity of real ink. A 2012 Harris Poll find 21% of adults have at least one tattoo, while a 2010 Pew Research Center report put the percentage at 40% for millennials in particular. Each data point shows tattoos on the riseespecially for liberal americans.

That said, not everyone wants to take the permanent plunge, especially since there are so many short-lived ink trends to try.

Temporary tattoos that actually look like the real thing – and stay on for over an hour – are the perfect complement to the growing tattoo trend, which shows no signs of letting up.

We have already reached the moment when fashion magazines and bloggers recommend tattoo tendencies alongside clothes, shoes and bags. We now have the chance to try as many as possible, risk-free.
