The Do’s and Don’ts of Gold Temporary Tats

Amelia Diamond | June 5, 2015

You like music, we like music. You like gold shiny pretty things, we like gold shiny pretty things. After all, we’re only human.

However, no one gets to live in a festival dream land forever. We live in the real world (zzz), which isn’t always the most practical place for an armload of temporary armor.

Or is it?

Here’s how to wear those strangely addictive gold temporary tattoos that — yes, my friends — are likely to be around for one more summer. Why?

Because you like gold shiny pretty things, we like gold shiny pretty things. This isn’t brain surgery. But it is strategic accessorizing:

Do: Consider your outfit

Nothing says, “I am still mentally sleeping in a tent and dropping the proverbial bass,” quite like cut-off jorts, a crop top and temporary tattoos. (So there’s your first don’t.)

Flash-Tats---3

Instead, wear something that will completely throw your audience off. Layer a bit. Get funky with volume. Then climb back into that mental tent and count your lucky stars.

Do: Apply in moderation

I think this is the one time on this site that we’ll advocate such restraint.

Flash-Tats---9

Don’t go overboard with the ice even though we know it’s tempting. You don’t want to be “gold girl” at your summer internship. Making a face like you mean it helps.

Do: Get creative and cut them up

Just because you buy a set of intricately woven chains doesn’t mean you have to go full Midas. Snip them down to your liking. Don’t be afraid of the scissors.

 

Flash-Tats---28-arrows-2

Do: Place in discreet locations

Can you spot the flash tat?

Flash-Tats---1-(1)

Or, don’t be discreet at all.

Not sure why we’re being so bossy today. Just put ’em right on your face.

Flash-Tats---24

Maybe people will think it’s a cool mole!

Do: bring enough to share.

These babies catch on faster than a bag of cough drops in a classroom. Now get yourself a pack and upload your photos below so we can see your golden do’s and don’ts.

Yup. We were into gold temporary tats last summer, too. Buy them here, here, here or hereWould you get (/do you have) a real tattoo? Weigh in.

    I feel like I have too much arm hair to utilize these effectively. Also, you’re not supposed to wear sunscreen on them… this scares me.

    They can be so addicting. I once put on about 15 while quite intoxicated. Very fun removal the next day.

    • My girlfriend did this for her birthday this year. The sunburn she got around them was hilarious. It didn’t matter that the tattoos came off, her tribal arm cuff will reign on for the summer.

  • LEE @ Modern Granola

    I like the idea of wearing these in subtle places, like inside the ear or on the wrist underneath a bunch of bracelets. I’ve always loved the peek-a-boo thing. Understated but powerful.

    I used to rock temporary tattoos way back in high school. I’ve accumulated 5 real ones, that I love, since then. I like these, I really really do. It’s just…I think I aged out of this quite a while ago 🙁

    The benefits of healthy eating and exercise cannot be underestimated. I prefer the “metabolic cookbook” its full of over 250 mouth watering recipes and best of all, it will have you losing weight in no time with its scientifically proven metabolic boosting ingredients. I have a review of this cookbook on my blog

    I have tattooed a Dolly Parton wig and a lipstick on my arm, my left thigh and my back from shoulder to shoulder, since you asked. I would like to wear those flash tattoos around my wrist but I’m too hairy for them and I’m not about to shave my arms (been there, done that, got the rash).

    • Amelia Diamond

      those are amazing tattoos, and viva la arm hair!

    Why would anyone WANT to look so trashy?

        Let me guess, Boston? I’m sorry. You should learn to pronounce the letter “R” if you have any interest in sounding like you have any sort of education.

        • As long as we’re learning to spell, I was actually riffing on your username. Luv from Chicago.

          • truthtellah

            If you were “educated” in that cesspool of corruption I’m not surprised that you can’t spell love either. Let me guess, Democrat for life, right?

          • I almost died laughing reading this little conversation. Love your responses, Erin.

    Hi there,

    I love this article! Actually I was searching for gold temporary tattoo reviews, when I found this great blog. I have tested quite a few myself and have to say that the quality differs heavily. It especially depends where you place the tattoo on your body. The ones imported from overseas fell already apart after just a few hours when worn in more “sweaty areas” (I was hoping to find a nicer way saying this, but obviously failed). Annoyed by this, I have teamed up with very experienced tattoo specialists and created more durable and real 24k gold tattoos developed (100% made in the USA). We just launched this project and I would really appreciate any reviews. If you are interested, please check out our website http://goldsinla.com and use the contact form to get a free sample.

    Lots of love,

    Emily – http://goldsinla.com
