A month or so back, I was contacted buy Fake Tattoos to try out some of their temporary tattoos out. Having a few real tattoos myself, I was curious to see how they would look on the skin, and what their lasting power would be like. Although I'm not much of a festival go-er myself, I think temporary tattoos look awesome paired with a flower headband and ripped up denim shorts. Not everyone is prepared to ink themselves for life, which is totally understandable, so fake tattoos are the perfect compromise if you want to pull off a bit of a badass look but without the money and commitment of a permanent inking. They also have the option of designing your own tattoo, so you can actually test drive a possible tattoo before shelling out the money for it! You can also order design tattoos in bulk if you want to use them for promoting a business etc.

The designs that Fake Tattoos sent me over were't really my style, but if you check out the website then you'll see that there is a huge variety of styles and designs to suit anyones needs. They are also pretty inexpensive, and are also great if you are thinking about getting a tattoo, but have yet to decide on the placement/want to see what it would look like first. They also sent me over some nail tattoos, so if you're not quite into skin inkings, you can try out a few designs on your nails instead. Overall, their longevity was pretty good, I would say they last well for daily use, but after 12 hours or so, you can really start to see the cracking appear in the design. So, if you are wanting to try out a potential tattoo, or just have a bit of fun, I would definitely take a look at the Fake Tattoos and have a look!


  1. So interesting! The only experience I have with temporary tattoos are the kiddy ones I used for fun years ago haha, I've actually never really thought of using them for more realistic tatts (which is a bit stupid of me haha). That's really cool that you can get one custom made though!
