Tattoos to try before you buy
Scared to get a tattoo? Try one on for looks
Tattoos and skin art are usually permanent. That's the bad news. The good news is that you can try on all kinds of wearable art without committing to a lifetime of odd comments and yes, let's face it, ostracism.
Ostracism, from Miriam Webster Dictionary:
Pronunciation: \ˈäs-trə-ˌsi-zəm\Function: noun Date: 1588
1 : a method of temporary banishment by popular vote without trial or special accusation practiced in ancient Greece
2 : exclusion by general consent from common privileges or social acceptance
Yes, unfortunately, aside from the pain of the tattoo itself, you will be ostracized by certain groups of people and will be lucky to ever find a job again.
So get a temporary tattoo! Try it out with your friends and loved ones. See what they think. Try skull tattoos, dragon tattoos, butterfly tatts and other popular body art.
When you find the one you really love, you can have it permanently affixed to your skin forever!
Here is a lovely online shop that will let you try before you buy. It's called Temporary Tattoos.com. And if you click on the link, I will receive a small commission from your purchase. I promise not to spend it all in one place! So go ahead and try some tribal tattoos now!
Realistic looking tattoos
Fake tattoo? You decide
Tattoos that look real enough to fool your best friend
Some fake tattoos do look fake. But I gotta tell you that the secret is in the application. Make sure the area that you are applying the tat to is squeaky clean and hair free. Wipe it down with alcohol before application and let it dry.
With just a little bit of practice you can apply temporary tattoos that look amazingly like the real thing. They won't look fake and they will last for nearly a week, even if you shower, bathe, or go surfing.
Some temp tattoos look shiny after you put them on. Here's another secret. After you have applied the tattoo and it is dry and semi-permanent, dust it with a bit of baby powder. This will get rid of the shine and will actually make it look more realistic.
Now go out and show off that new angel tattoo!
