Not everybody can get their bodies inked!!
As someone who has spent many happy hours fascinated by breathtaking tattoo designs including temporary tattoos, and draws more designs on her body than on paper, the view of my blank-canvassed body as I step out of the shower each morning is very disappointing. As a girl who has grew up in a very strict and disciplined family, having such an extreme liking for styling and tattooing is a great pain. And…that pain!!! Hughhh…
Truth is that it’s not due to a lack of inky inspiration or a heart-pounding hatred for the needles. Fact is I’m fascinated by the delicious disparity of tattoo designs I’ve had the pleasure of witnessing. Tattoos are permanent and lasts forever is a bitter truth for me despite of the fact that I’m very fond of them.
You could say my dislike to committing to ink-based permanency is somewhat like “grass is always greener” approach. Every time my mind creates a faultless forearm design or a subtly wrist tattoo, the tattoo commitment-phobe inside me starts screaming, “Wait! What if in five years’ time you think up a better bodily illustration? Do you want to live a life full of regrets and broken dreams!? And there I stop everytime I make my mind. Quite perplexing!
Although my body-branding fight has been busy transforming my mind into an anxious mess, thanks to the fashion industry with range of temporary inking options for unsure tattooers has been greatly expanding.
From pocket-friendly home Henna kits to body art pens and Chanel stick-ons for all designer brand tattoo fans like me, the industry’s latest troop of temporary tattoos provides a cost-effective, less-painful, commitment-free way of boring-body escapism that can be changes and swapped more often than your hairstyle.
Hence, whether the idea of public defacement doesn’t entice you or you’re as indecisive as I am, feel free to adorn yourself with these top winners of temporary tatts!
Have a look.
