You Can Now Get A Temporary Tattoo Of Your Best Mate’s Face

To show your love.

A tattoo is for life, not just for Christmas — unless you’re on a drunken stag do to Magaluf. If you don’t want to have your BFF’s face etched onto your body forever, you can now celebrate your #friendgoals with these temporary tattoos.

For those of us who are inked to the gods, chances are there’s probably one tattoo somewhere that you have a few regrets about getting. Whether it’s getting a camel on your toe or a lower-back butterfly, some inkings just don’t age as well as they should.

If you want to temporarily show your love for someone on their stag or hen do, celebrate someone’s milestone birthday, or pay tribute to a loved one, temporary tattoos are a real thing on Etsy. The brainchild of Lilimandrill, the personalised tattoos start at just £32.

The average size is 3 x 4 cm ( 1.2″ x 1.6″) and they’re drawn by hand without the use of Photoshop. Making them customisable and ordering in bulk means there’s no end to the possibilities.

The description promises, “You’ll get a unique, precise and delicate piece of art just for you and your guests.” Dates and names are added at no additional cost, and lasting for 2-3 days means they’ll be gone before your grandma can lecture you on your latest questionable tattoo.

Also, the idea of having your friend’s face temporarily on you can let you know if a permanent addition would be a good idea.

If you want something that’ll stick around forever though, why not try and embroidery tattoo?  A quick search of Instagram can find some pretty impressive offerings.

If you think getting your bestie’s face across your back might be a bad idea, it could always be worse. You could be the girl who got EastEnders‘ Ian Beale marked on her skin.
