Flash Tatoos: The Latest Must Have Accessory


If you haven’t seen someone decked out in Flash Tattoos by now, then you may have somehow gotten lost in some dimension or you are living under a rock. Thanks to celebrities like Beyoncé and Rihanna these innovative jewelry inspired temporary tattoos are now considered a must have accessory for every self-respecting fashionista. Flash Tattoos are popping up on bodies at the beach, the pool, parties, festivals, concerts or anywhere with a chance of showing of individual style.  Thankfully for the needle-averse and fad-phobics these are temporary and don’t use any needles.


Yes, flash tattoos are somewhat similar to regular temporary ink, but they’re super-metallic, and can last up to two weeks depending how well you take care of them.


With so many styles and options, it can be hard to know where to start. Don’t go overboard with the tats even though we know it’s tempting. You don’t want to be “gold girl” at the party. Just because you buy a set of intricately woven chains doesn’t mean you have to wear them all. They can be Snipped and worn in different places that you like.

By now you must be wondering, can I wear then to the office? The answer is yes please.  Flash tats are a great way to add some personality to a fancy or professional look. With so many subtle options, such as ring tattoos, they can bring a small touch of excitement and sparkle and still be tasteful and elegant.

And you are probably thinking that pairing them with your usual jewelry may be overkill, but the truth is flash tattoos and jewelry go hand in hand.  You can pair with bracelets, rings, and necklaces. The possibilities are endless when you start layering. To get yourself these fancy tats, visit Angel tattoo at Acacia Mall, Kisementi where they go for 10-20k.
