Temporary tattoos are such a hot trend right now! They are the easiest way to add some edge to your look without the permanent commitment. You could apply new tattoos to go with each outfit, and simply wipe it off at the end of the day!
They are great for photo shoots when you want to create a different character for each shot.
Temporary tattoos are the new accessory! Use your body as a canvas and express yourself in a new, hip way!
