TICKLE YOUR TATTOO TASTEBUDS

There’s something about tattoos that we find intriguing. The whole process of picking something heartfelt with meaning, the absolute perfect position and sea of colours available that makes us can’t help but stare when we see them. But if like us you are intrigued but not brave enough to get the real one (or even if you do have them!) this Summer there is a pain-free, super easy option which is so hot right now it’s practically scorching!

Metallic temporary tattoos are THE accessory to have this Summer, and beyond.

As well as being down right cool, they are the perfect summer accessory that dresses up any outfit, without the hassle of wearing real jewellery {although we say later it up baby, the more the merrier}. If you follow us on Instagram, which you can do here, you’ll see we are already big fans and the trend has swiftly become the favourite accessory for numerous celebrities, fashion bloggers, and trendsetters around the globe. We love to layer them up like one big wrist party, with different patterns of mock bracelets from delicate, filigree indian styles to bold geometrics. Mix and match patterns and and don’t be afraid to try out new things, after all they will come off in a few days time so nows the time to be brave. Perhaps if you are contemplating the real deal a little dry run with a temporary version might give you the yes or no answer you were looking for?!

A few temporary tattoos give that playful look for everyday or make your special occasion outfit just a little more special. They transition between trends too so pick your look and play up to it, whether it’s glam and girly, a boho festival feel, or a little bit rock and roll. There are more realistic looking temporary tattoos out there but it’s the metallic ones we love, the soft glow they give is so flattering on many skin tones and can even make you look more tanned than you are (what more can you ask for?!) We’ve picked out these gorgeous shots to tickle your tattoo tastebuds and selected options from the high street for you to get creative and give metallic tattoos a go!
