Temporary tattoos were once tacky, not anymore!
Inkwear was launched in 2010 on the basis that these were fun, fashionable and flexible accessories in favour of creating quality temporary tattoos that do not flake or peel away. Its east London base and artsy nature suggest that this brand is no flash in the pan, but it is hard to believe that temporary tattoos have become quite so scientifically advanced with FDA approval, non-toxic technology and designed for the most sensitive of skin.
From classic animal transfers to fashionable 1950s pin-ups and from botanical floral to the more unorthodox esoteric cassette players, Inkwear is known for throwing up some serious style statements.
The Upcoming bring you their favourites and hopefully inspire you to design your own, in a temporary tattoo-tastic time!
Seen as a must-have for any girly girl who wants to spice up their lower back, the lace and bow set are perfect and come in a range of colours and sizes. Prices are around the £7 mark for a set of five, so what is your excuse?
If you are a traditionalist and are inspired by tattoos adorning your latest celebrity crush then look no further than the art and celebrity collection from skulls and slogans to Banksy art. Here at The Upcoming we are enjoying the skull with the top hat; it reminds us of a cross between Slash and Damien Hirst. Is there any better combination?
The jewellery collection would be great for a venue where jewellery is a must, but you are a little worried about getting totally crazy and losing something. We adore the hanging chain with the fabulous fluffy pink dice; these would look awesome behind long hair, on your back or shoulder blade or placed at the bottom of a short sleeve.
As the music festival season kicks off and the weather turns from dreary to sunny, I urge you to check out all the latest transfers or even design your own
