Would You Wear… Metallic Temporary Tattoos?


Product Information: Flash Tattoos, Happytatts on Etsy, Flash Tattoos

Obsessed is not extreme enough of a word to describe our passion for this latest trend. The metallic temporary tattoo has come out of nowhere and taken the accessory world by storm. Or is it jewelry? Or body art? Perhaps this trend is a little bit of everything, including fabulous.

From what we are able to tell, Flash Tattoos and Lulu DK began selling them, then this trend developed a life of its own. These shiny beauties would amp up any festival look or beachside ensemble, and we think these tats are simply too good to pass up!

The best part? They offer the appeal of body art without the long-lasting impacts of being inked for life.

    i wore these to a music festival and they were a huge hit! i had crazy tan lines after though, which i thought were cool, but they were pretty prominent. careful though if you apply and then use sunscreen it take the tattoo off.

    I wouldn’t wear them by themselves, but I would mix them with regular jewelry. I would love to see some in neon or colorful metallic.

    Not a huge fan of most of them, but I really love the simple triangle in the top middle photo. I really like the more subtle ones :)

    These look so beautiful! It adds a cool bohemian touch to any outfit and I might actually give these a try if I get a chance too. But seeing as summer is almost over, and where I live it gets cold as soon as we get to the second week of September, I think I might actually pass on these. Had you guys told us about these sooner, I would of tried them myself…

    They’re gorgeous. A bit worried for when they start peeling off though!

    Whoa! These are gorgeous. I didn’t know they existed till now. I doubt they sell them over here, though. :(
