Temporary Tattoos Are Officially the Coolest New Accessories

Introducing the newest fad in not-jewelry.


Commitment-phobes, rejoice! Temporary tattoos are now a “thing” (remember the faux jewelry ones we posted last week?). And you can get ’em on the interwebs. One quick “temporary tattoo” search on Etsy garners hundreds of gorgeous floral, watercolor, and sketch-like tats. You’ve still got to filter through the Miley Cyrus tattoo look-a-likes and the cat tats, though, so we cut out the grunt work for you. Here are the coolest temporary tattoos on the web — none of which scream  “I came from a quarter machine!” and all of which you can scrub them off with a little baby oil come Monday morning. Bonus points to whoever rocks a whole sleeve.

Clockwise from left: Temporary Tattoo T122 and Temporary Tattoo T117, both $3.99 at TatiToo Etsy Shop; Vintage Blue and White Temporary Tattoo, $6 at Pepperink Etsy Shop; Fern & Crystal Temporary Tattoo Kit, $21.05 at Victoria’s Aviary Etsy Shop; Gold Floral Temporary Tattoo, $5 at Tattly.
