Embellish your body with metallic tattoos

Embellish your body with metallic tattoos

If you’re in need of a cool upgrade for your festival look or something to pep up your beach wardrobe, the metallic tattoo trend could be just what you’re looking for.

Little Mix’s Perrie Edwards, model Rosie Huntington- Whiteley and U.S. star Selena Gomez are just some of the celebrities who have sported metallic transfers on their Instagram pages.

The chic, metallic tats look perfect against sun-kissed skin, and will add a touch of boho radiance to your festival or poolside look.

You can add a bracelet style golden design to wrists or ankles, or a strip of metallic wow running down your back or neck, which can easily be removed once you are return to reality. They can also be worn as chokers or as a golden hippy-style headband as seen on Perrie. Then layer with delicate gold jewellery to finish the look.

The tattoos are non-toxic, and simple to apply using water on dry skin. If applied correctly, they can last several days.

Whether you're off to Ibiza, Marbs or Bestival, there are plenty of amazing designs available, including chains, feathers, stars, flowers or bolder tribal looks.

Beyonce showed off her Flash Tattoos to great effect embellishing her bootylicious holiday body with faux gold 'jewellery' from her neck down to her curvy hips.

The Formation singer wore layers of bangles, a gold collar neckpiece and peacock designs peeking from her bikini bottoms.

Vanessa Hudgens and Selena Gomez are both fans of Lulu DK Tattoos, and it’s easy to see why. The brand’s metallic Love Story Temporary Tattoos come in gorgeous, creative designs that look like wearable works of art. The tattoos are available in either silver or gold hues.

For Aztec style bracelet designs, check out Orelia Aztec Sunburst Strip Tattoo or their Stargazer Hair and Body Tattoo which offer plenty of choice for the boho chic lover. If you’d like something more subtle, Johnny Loves Rosie’s Metallic Flower Tattoos are cute floral designs, or try STYlondon’s delicate peacock feather Copacabana tattoos.

Jewellery duo Tada & Toy have collaborated with Streak Tattoos for an exclusive range of temporary tattoos inspired by the brand's unique jewellery designs. And there's plenty of choice as the range includes ear cuffs, chokers, rings, and face art among its designs.

However, for some real temporary bling, Yves Saint Laurent has its own range of wash off body art, Couture Skin Tattoos, which even includes some tattoos of the brand’s famous logo design.
