Temporary tattoos are the latest addition to ripped jeans and floral crowns.
Spotted all over the red carpet, metallic jewellery tattoos are blazing through the fashion scene.
Unlike most trends that come and go, these won’t leave a dent in your pocket. They typically come in a bunch, stuck on sheets and cost a couple bucks. The advantage is that there’s no permanent commitment and you don’t need laser surgery to remove them since they are temporary.
Designers like Tommy Hilfiger are sending models down the runway in these designs. A longtime ambassador of the trend is Beyonce. She even collaborated with a fashion house’s temporary tattoo line back in 2010. She displayed several of the designs while celebrating her 33rd birthday in Italy and later shared a series of snaps of the body art on her Instagram page.
Rebena would wear them piled together for a layered look. She would stick rings on her wrists close together to imitate stacked bangles. The next wave is a watercolour version of metallic tats in hand-painted designs.
