You can now flaunt some serious bling on your body, thanks to the newest trend of glitter tattoo and tattoo jewelry. These gold tattoos are temporary, lasting anywhere between three to seven days. They look very pretty and you can get creative with their placement, getting them on your ankles or on your collarbone. These sparkly tattoos are emerging to be the hottest new thing. People are doing them at birthday parties, weddings, and other events and the guests are loving it.
Glitter tattoos come in some very interesting and intricate designs. You have a selection of tribal motifs and geometric patterns on one end and designs that look like actual pieces of jewelry at the other end. With customers being so spoilt for choice, it is no wonder that tattoo jewelry is touted as the next big thing. Even Hollywood celebrities have been spotted sporting it on the red carpet.
Luxury brand Dior launched a limited edition 24 carat gold temporary tattoos a few years back. Of course the price was exorbitant, but it’s Dior, so that is expected.
But let’s leave the real gold tattoos for those who can afford it and turn our attention towards the much less expensive fake gold tattoos. They maybe fake, but they have a nice sparkle and look genuine. You can flaunt these tattoos, especially when you go to the beach. They catch the sunlight and sparkle like real jewelry.
You can even buy one of those DIY kits and entertain your guests with it at your next party. Kids will also go gaga over it because let’s be honest, who doesn’t like having gold on their skin?
These tattoo jewelry also come in clever designs to make them look like rings and necklaces. Who needs real jewelry when you can sport something this fabulous?
The gold will also go wonderfully with our ethnic Indian wear, making it perfect for weddings and festivities. Imagine sporting a pretty glitter tattoo that goes perfectly with your lehenga.
What is It Made of?
The regular temporary gold tattoos are made of dermatologically tested glitter. This is then mixed with a solution and then painted onto the skin. You also have temporary gold tattoos that come in pre-designed sheets. These have to be applied like regular temporary tattoos, by pressing onto the skin; the design gets transferred from the sheet to the skin.
Alternatively, we have the luxurious real gold tattoo. Here, designers use real gold to paint the designs. These are popular amongst brides as it makes them feel special.
How to remove a Tattoo?
Since these tattoos are temporary, they fade away after a week or so. If you want to remove them sooner, all you have to do is to rub on some olive oil onto the tattoo, leave it on for a minute or so and wipe away with a warm damp cloth.
There is something so attractive about a glitter tattoo. It is both subtle and over the top at the same time, and one cannot help but be charmed by it.
Go ahead and be the first person in your circle to get a gold tattoo. Your friends will love it. You can even surprise them with a gold tattoo session at your home, wherein you guys can help each other out with the placement of the tattoo and take picture after picture of your work of art. You can even use gold tattoos as a return gift for your kid’s birthday party. All the kids will love it and it will make for a memorable return gift.
We Indians just love our gold jewelry and keeping that in mind, I am very confident that this gold new tattoo trend is going to become a huge thing here in India.
All that glitters is not gold, but if it looks as good as this gold tattoo, then it is good enough for me!
