On Granville Island (Vancouver) we popped into a dual purpose First Nations gallery/tourist trap shop that had some irresistible souvenirs.  We snapped up a few temporary tattoos, which of course we had to apply right away.

I don't have any permanent ink but I find myself constantly pinning lovely tattoos and I have to say, having this sweet bird on my wrist makes me feel pretty darned good.  Not saying I'm going to do it, but I am saying that I may just get hooked on temporary tattoos to scratch that itch.  This of course led me on a great big hunt, and I found some real beauties.

check them out after the jump...

Wow, right?  I would never even think about considering these if it were permanent, but the idea of having huge blossoms for a week or so is pretty exciting.  For a special occasion or just on a whim, I would absolutely stick one of these babies on.  Would you?

Those extra large flowers and the smaller ones above are from ggsell (by the way they also have insane nail decals, I don't even know what to say about this).

Then of course there's the fun designs over at Tattly:

What do you think?  Do you/would you do temporary tattoos? Do you have the real thing?  Any regrets?


  1. I'd never get a tattoo, but I love looking at all the creative ink people get! xoxo

  2. I think temporary tattoos are simply brilliant!

  3. So so cool! I wish I had the courage to get my own.

    1. But the beauty of a temporary tattoo is that it wouldn't really take much courage at all!


Say what?
