Dare To Wear Temporary Tattoos?

  • Pin it

Technically it’s more like “dare to apply temporary tattoos” but then again, once on your skin, you’d actually have to wear them for everyone to see. Especially the Eye Tattoos – they’re hardly discrete. But we’re living in fast times and even doing your nails has become a matter of applying a patch of instant nail polish instead of applying coat after coat and waiting for it to dry on its own.

Following in the footsteps of the Dior eyeliner patches we talked about in the past, (nail) Rock cosmetics have added eye tattoos to their collection. I discovered these while browsing Free People’s What’s New section. And to my surprise, I felt curious about them – I would even go as far as to say I’d like to try them! (click through for more)

Why not, after all? I’m not a makeup virtuoso and I could certainly not achieve such an intricate result by free drawing on my eyelids (would you?). So yes, I would definitely try the eye tattoos. But I don’t know if I’d wear them in public.

Nor do I know about the body tattoos. As practical as they are, because they’re temporary tattoos and you don’t get to do them once and wear them forever, I think they’re a bit tacky. Did you ever try temporary apply on body tattoos?

Yes, I have had twice henna tattoos. Once on my hands and once my writs. It did look beautiful. Done by a Moroccan girl. Alas, they faded slowly that in the end I’d wish the colour was gone :)

I wouldn’t wear these tattoos on my eyes. It’s not for me. But I can see why you like it.
Hmm, I don’t feel the body tattoos are tacky. Depends on who shows them off?
