Remember those silly temporary tattoos that you used to wear as a wee kiddo? There were those giant yellow smiley faces, jolly cartoon characters and, of course, funky phrases like “WOW!” and “COOL!” that you could put anywhere on your being.
Well, temporary tattoos are totally back and ready for action. Only stead of being worn by the “12 and under” crowd, trendsetters and fashion-forward females are donning them. And instead of goofy smiley faces, we’re talking deluxe tattoos that look so good, they even pass as the real deal.
