Since last summer, metallic body art has been in demand, probably because these gilded temporary tattoos are inexpensive, eye-catching and decidedly non-committal. Though shimmery in the summer sun, this time of year the delicate gold and silver body stencils in the form of rings, bracelets and necklaces are a whimsical if unexpected accessory pick me up. Seen on celebs including Beyonce, Alessandra Ambrosio and Vanessa Hudgens, the look can be tailored complement a red carpet ensemble or casual night out.
Metallic jewelry tattoos, also known as “flash tattoos,” are available locally at ReNew Salon on Thames Street. A full packet is $44 which includes two full sheets of a variety of tattoos ($22 sheet) or $4 per tattoo and they last around two weeks before fading. Apply yourself with just a dab of water or the gals at ReNew can apply for you.
