Hair tattoos: the ultimate party accessory!

silver and red hair tattoo

Temporary tattoos have become a standard accessory for many people, especially for nightlife. Recently, a new variant has come onto the market: the temporary hair tattoos. As usual, the Hollywood stars were quick to try out this novelty, but now they are also being increasingly discovered by fashionistas around the world.

Let’s party!

In this way Mira, Sarie and Liesbeth went to work with the temporary hair tattoos for a night out. The perfect time to try out everything! First they had to try and choose from the extensive range. There are smaller, subtle hair tattoos such as a little feather or moon, but also elongated tattoos that you can use in a ponytail or plait. The larger, fuller tattoos look really great on an up do hairstyle or as a jewellery hairpin in your hair.

Liesbeth made her long plait into a bun and finished her hair with silver and gold tattoos. The whole gives her a sophisticated look, perfect for a stylish evening party with a more formal atmosphere.

Do you prefer something more subtle? Then go for a tattoo that follows your hairline and keep your hairstyle sleek and simple.

Sarie opted for a silver and red elongated tattoo, which made a very successful contrast with her blonde hair. Together with the side bun the tattoos made her look very alluring!

Do you like cute details? Then use the smaller hair tattoos to add an accent here and there, such as the butterfly below.

Hair tattoos, how do you apply them?

Mira, Sarie and Liesbeth were amazed at the ease with which the tattoos could be applied. The principle is the same as the regular temporary tattoos. You cut the desired tattoo from the sheet, remove the plastic film and push the tattoo side onto your hair. This already makes the tattoo stick a bit. By wetting the other white side you can transfer tattoo to your hair. You should make sure that your hair is clean, without any hair products and well brushed. Please read the instructions here.

Montattoo, temporary tattoos by professionals

Montattoo - Lisa D. collectie no 2

2015 promises to become the year for temporary tattoos! More people are discovering what fun it can be to experiment with all kinds of designs and colors. Metallic tattoos – temporary tattoos in gold and silver tones – are especially popular. Not ready for a ‘real’ tattoo? Don’t want to be saddled forever with a design done on a whim in the spur of the moment? Then temporary tattoos are exactly up your street!

The hype surrounding temporary tattoos did not escape Bram Laebens and Arend Pijls. When founding MonkeyMonkey, these two guys from Ghent did not sail in on the decal-style tattoo trend – they wanted to do it better, with unique and quality designs. And so Montattoo was born!


Montattoo - Dries V. collectie no 10

From the start, Bram and Arend had a professional approach. They absolutely only wanted to work with people who are familiar with the tattoo world, and thus know exactly what type of designs are popular, and where people most frequently place their tattoos. Contrary to what you might think, the world of ‘real’ tattoos is not opposed to temporary tattoos. On the contrary, tattoo artists themselves use temporary tattoos to provide doubting customers with an idea of what a tattoo would look like. Moreover, in this way, tattoos become more generally recognized and accepted by a wider audience.

The Montattoo designs had to be unique in order to stand out in the large selection already available out there. In addition, people needed to get to work creatively by giving it their own interpretation. Bram and Arend eventually chose three creative artists, each designing their own Montattoo Collection: Lisa Dumon and Dries Verscheure are both tattoo artists, and Toyah De Corte is an illustrator. They were given free rein, each collection reflecting their own unique style.


Lisa D. Collection

Montattoo - Lisa Dumon

Lisa Dumon is a recognized tattoo artist who finds her inspiration in her work. She works at the Polak’s Finest Beef Shop tattoo studio. Her work is characterized by dotwork and she also likes to use contrasts. For Montattoos, she drew these four different tattoo sheets:

Dries V. Collection

Dries Verscheure Montattoo

Dries Verscheure has been running his own tattoo studio, Punctum, since 2014. His style is academic, yet absurd. His collection for Montattoo shows something of a more rugged design, and consists of four tattoo sheets:

Toyah D. Collection

Illustrator Toyah De Corte sees herself as an observer and calls her style semi-realistic. She loves to draw and to experiment with different media. Her four tattoo sheets will especially appeal to nature and animals lovers:

Gold Collection

Naturally, a collection of gold temporary tattoos could not be left out. There is a wide choice, including geometric designs, feathers, palm trees and quotes:

Play collection

For those who prefer colorful and playful temporary tattoos, Bram himself designed the Play collection. Quotes such as “Good vibes only” and “Live life in a bikini” reflects the feel of this collection.

The collections have been a great hit and the two young entrepreneurs see the number of orders growing every day. It was never their intention to last for just one summer. Temporary tattoos should become an established accessory. There are all kinds of new collaborations in the works, including with people outside of the tattoo world, so be sure to keep an eye on their website.

Are you convinced?
