Fern + Crystal Temporary Tattoos

Fern & Crystals Temporary Tattoo Set-1-Design Crush

 

At first glance these fern and crystal temporary tattoos from The Aviary had me thinking they were the real thing (in fact, I think you’ll find them on my my Fresh Ink board where I pinned them months ago). Each one is taken from shop owner Victoria’s original illustrations and printed on professional-grade material for up to five days of wear. I think it would be so much fun to cover both arms and parts of your face with the ferns for Halloween!

Paper Tattoos.

The only thing I love more than my favorite things are when two of my favorites get together and make something incredible. In this case paper and tattoos.  Jacob Dahlstrup uses a tattoo gun on rag paper to create the most beautiful blind images. Take a look at how he does it here. {via d.Sharp Journal}

Amanda Wachob Tattoo.

I have five tattoos of my own and have always been a fan of the all black look. But these? The work of tattoo artist Amanda Wachon is flat out art. Brilliant art that makes me want to embrace the colored side. I’ve never wanted to live in NYC more than this very moment, she’s there inking away at Dare Devil Tattoo. Like, whoa, total girl crush. {via frolic!}
