Whether you realize it or not, you probably thrive off change. Renewing your identity by switching up your look can work wonders to energize your life and help you pull yourself out of a depressive slump. Change your hairstyle, buy some new clothes and consider exploring the world of temporary body art.

1. Style, Possibilities and Versatility

If you’re caught up in a new phase, you may feel tempted to get a permanent tattoo to go with your fresh outlook on life. However, it’s important to consider that you could always change your mind, so first going with a temporary tattoo is a much better option. At some point in the future, you might go through a stage in your life where you want to shed everything from the past. Whether or not you will feel this way is difficult to predict, so it’s always better to refrain from making permanent changes to your physical appearance.

2. No Pain or Chance of Infection

There are some people who enjoy the pain of getting a tattoo and others who shy away from the practice because of it. If you’re one of the latter, you will be pleased to know that temp tattoos are completely pain free, and they often look and feel quite similar to the real thing.

3. Major Quality Improvements

If your only experience with temporary tattoos is with the cheap prizes that came out of cereal boxes when you were a kid, it’s time to open your mind. Temporary tattoos have come a long way since those days, and they are now perfect for adults as well as kids. You can now find beautiful temporary tattoos in just about any design imaginable.

4. Easy to Apply

Temporary tattoo designs have improved, but they still function in pretty much the same way they always have. Simply press the tattoo design into your wet skin and then carefully remove the transfer paper. When you’re ready to remove the design, scrub your skin with a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol, or just let the tattoo slowly flake off on its own.

5. Affordable and Easy to Find

If you’re interested in trying temporary tattoos, browse the Internet. There are many different sites that offer a large selection of them at affordable prices, allowing you to collect many different designs. This way, you will always have a body art option to suit your current mood.

Temporary tatts give you options when it comes to expressing your personality. Not only can you match your body art to your hair and makeup, but you can also express a completely new you each and every day. If nothing else, sporting a temporary one for a short time may help you decide if you would like a permanent tattoo in the future.

How To Dress Well With Tattoos

how to dressKnow how to dress whether you want to show off your tats or make sure no one sees them.

Dressing with style and flair can be a challenge when you are not quite sure how to dress for your tattoos. Whether you want to show them off or keep them covered, these fashion tips for looking your best.

Showing It Off

If you are dressing for spring or summer, the best thing you can do is to make sure all of your tattoo is visible. If you wear something that covers it partly, it will look, strange or uneven. By allowing your entire tattoo to show, it will become a part of your outfit.

You should also consider how that tattoo would look next to the colors in your clothing. If you have very heavily patterned and colorful tattoos, you may want to stick to a basic color scheme with your clothes and allow your tattoos to be the pop of color in your wardrobe. More muted tattoos can be dressed up with colorful and funky clothes.

Covering It Up

If you are going to an event where it’s essential you cover your tattoos, you have several options available, depending upon the location of your tattoo. If the tattoo is on your foot or ankle, you will need to wear shoes or boots that cover it.

Slouchy cowboy boots are very cute when paired with the right summer dress and they make sure your foot, angle and calf tattoos are covered. If the tattoo is on your upper leg, you can wear pants to cover it. If the event requires a dress, wearing leggings under the dress is also a good option.

For tattoos on your arms, a shrug or light sweater is an excellent and stylish way to cover your tattoos for a more formal occasion. These usually look nice with both spring and summer dresses, which may be sleeveless or short sleeved.

If you absolutely must, you can always try a cover cream to cover your tattoo. Make sure you get a high quality cream that will not rub off as the day goes on. Take the cream with you for when you need to apply it more than once.

Looking your Best

No matter how many tattoos you have, there are certain style tips that still apply to everyone. You should always wear clothes that fit well. This will go a long way toward making you look comfortable and confident in your own skin.

Think about ways you can accent your tattoo if the occasion is right. A shorter top paired with low cut waist jeans can show of your belly tattoo. A sleeveless shirt is perfect to show the tat on your upper arm. A pair of sandals and a sexy skirt does justice to ankle and calf tattoos.

When showing off your tattoo, be careful not to overdo it with accessories. Some simple, low-key accessories will make your tattoo the best bling you’re wearing.

Tattoo Advice That Goes A Little Deeper

When you are thinking of getting a tattoo you are likely to encounter the same advice time and time again. People will always tell you that you need to think carefully about what you are going to get because it will be with you for the rest of your life. However, it is important to build on this relatively superficial advice that many people just find irritating because it has become so throw-away.

Personal Mementos
Perhaps the first thing you need to think about in terms of the suitability of your tattoo design relates to how specific it is to your current circumstances in your personal life. It is an unfortunate fact of life that things that seem certain at any given time later seem much more uncertain and sometimes cease to be the case altogether.
For instance, getting the name of your current girlfriend or boyfriend tattooed on your arm may seem like a great idea at the time and an even better idea when you get married, but if things change later on then these tattoos can become a painful reminder of something you’d rather not have a permanent physical memorial to.

Is it worth thinking of something that stands as a metaphor for how you feel about your current girlfriend or boyfriend rather than getting their name? Sometimes using metaphors and images that can be manipulated in terms of their interpretation is a better idea because it enables you to show off something very personal but the sentiment behind the tattoo does not have to be as permanent as the ink itself.

Originality
Another thing that you ought to think carefully about in order to make sure that you remain pleased with your tattoo further down the line has to do with originality. Is your design something that countless other people have or countless other people are likely to have in time? If the answer to this question is yes then it is worth having a re-think. Sometimes the proliferation of a certain design makes individual examples of that design less special.

Of course, you may decide that even a very common design is just perfect for you because it fits your personal style and tastes and it conveys a message that you relate to. In this case, it is obviously fine to go ahead with your design – although it may be worth seeing if you artist can find a way to make it your own so that you retain a sense of originality even if the idea is a prevalent one.
