Temporary Tattoos Are Not Just For Summer

Temporary tattoos are definitely one of the hottest trends in summer. Your best swimsuit can easily be jazzed up by your favorite tat, and a festival OOTD instantly becomes extra special with these temporary works of art. If you have already fallen in love with them (in a less temporary way), then good news—we found more official reasons for you to wear them all year round and not just for summer!

Temporary Tattoos Are Not Just For Summer

Use them for everyday motivation. Temporary tattoos by Tattoo For a Week are good ways to sneak in semi-permanent motivational quotes into your day. Have the words “Live, Laugh, Love” tattooed on your arm to remind yourself to do it as often as you can, or a Bible verse to keep the positivity coming throughout the day. If you have a particular quote in mind, you can simply send the design to Tattoo For a Week and they will have this custom-made, just for you!

 Live Laugh Love Tattoos

Use them to flaunt your inner fanboy/fangirl. Wear iconic symbols from your favorite fandom on your skin for a full week! Are you into Harry Potter? Then you will definitely yell “Accio!” just to get your hands on this Deathly Hallows temporary tattoo, or this one with Harry’s glasses and lightning scar. If you’re a Tolkien fan, you should check out the tat that has the iconic inscription “One Ring to rule them all, one Ring to find them, one Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them” that comes in a Middle-earthy font!

Use them to make subtle statements. Put a little humor into being passive aggressive through statement temporary tattoos that you can apply on hidden parts for your body! This one that says “Shhh” is a nice addition to the gesture of holding your forefinger in front of your mouth when you ask someone to be quiet! Or if you have a signature catchphrase, maybe it’s time that you make it known to the world that it’s yours through a custom tattoo!

Use them to reveal little clues about you. What is your zodiac sign? What is your spirit animal? All these interesting pieces of information can now be worn on your skin through temporary tattoos by Tattoo for a Week! Putting on temporary tattoos is not only a good way to express yourself, but it also lets you have that freedom of choosing what part of yourself you want to show through your tattoo since you can choose different designs every week.

So, do you still think temporary tattoos are just for summer? We hope not, because a lot of amazing designs are waiting for you at www.tattooforaweek.com!

Foil tattoos are temporary tattoos with a shiny metallic finish. The trend started with the famous Flash tattoos (read our blog article about Flash tattoos here), but by now, all kinds of varieties are available. There is something for everyone! The very fashionable gold and silver foil tattoos are still part of the array of course. But in addition, you will now also find dizzying holographic foil tattoos and colorful PrismFoil tattoos; even shiny temporary tattoos for your hair! The latter are now a real trend among the stars, such as Kylie Jenner.

Gold and silver foil tattoos

These are by far the most familiar foil tattoos. They provide a beautiful contrast for a black outfit; perfect for New Year’s Eve!

Below, they are used in very subtle ways. A few well-placed tattoos that are not too big will give you an elegant image. The bracelet with the bow makes it extra feminine!
