What are foil tattoos?

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!

Holographic foil tattoos

The holographic tattoos are shiny tattoos with a rainbow-colored, iridescent effect. They are more striking than the regular temporary tattoos, especially with the right lighting. The holographic tattoos are playful and particularly popular amongst the slightly younger crowd, but, of course, they are great for anyone who’s in the mood for a party.

In the holographic tattoos you will also find a lot of variation. Feminine tattoos, such as a meteor shower or a butterfly tattoo:

Tattoos for a hot summer

Hot town, summer in the city! It’s going to be summer again soon: basking in sun, sea and sand. In the meantime, the real fashionistas have managed to score perfect summer outfits (read: the lighter the better), with matching accessories, of course. As a finishing touch, more and more people are going for (temporary) tattoos. Not surprising as summer is the perfect season for it. A strategically placed tattoo can completely make your outfit (or lack thereof). These tattoos draw attention to your best features and reflect your personality, which is not always apparent in a bikini. Want to know more about the summer trends in (temporary) tattoos? Here are some of them!

Jewels against your skin

Let’s begin with (by far) the most popular temporary tattoos of the moment: gold and silver tattoos. We previously wrote a blog post about FLASH tattoos, but more and more players in the temporary tattoo market have picked up on this trend. Gold and silver tattoos are therefore perfect to highlight your bronzed skin properly. Moreover, they don’t interfere with swimming, which might be the case with real jewelry. There are dozens of different designs available, so you’ll always find a design that goes with your beach outfit! Below are some tattoos that have been available in the FLASH tattoo-range for quite a while, and are still extremely appealing:

What do you think of this ‘Golden dream-catcher tattoo’ or the ‘Golden joy tattoo’?

You can also place them vertically on your back for a special and rather elegant effect:

Another advantage of these tattoos is that they look so lavish. Thinking of crashing a beach party in Saint-Tropez? You certainly won’t be out of place!Like this trend? You can find the entire collection of gold and silver tattoos here. As always, the tattoos are completely safe, easy to apply, and extremely well priced!

Watercolor Tattoos

Another exciting trend is the range of watercolor tattoos. Because of the vibrant colors, these tattoos are especially popular in summer. They may be temporary, but many of the watercolor tattoos are certainly real tattoos, which are inked in the conventional way and (almost) endure as long as traditional tattoos. They do require a little more maintenance though: the soft colors fade slightly faster than black ink.Typical of the watercolor tattoos are the soft colors applied in splashes and smudges. The outline of the design is faded and they have no real pattern. Just like watercolor paint or a watercolor painting. Here are some examples:

But make no mistake! Both the temporary as well as permanent watercolor tattoos will make you look like an expert tattoo artist. The designs may not be clearly etched, but do require quite a lot of expertise to apply. Take a look at how this tattoo artist does it.

Have you heard of tantoos? No? Tantoos, or suntan tattoos, are totally hip this summer! Do you find it rather annoying when your watchband, rings or bikini leave a suntan mark burned on your skin? Probably, but what if you use that to your advantage? Use the sun to create your own temporary tattoo! Stick the design of your choice on your skin while sunbathing and enjoy your hip tantoo the next day!

TattooForAWeek offers different designs that you can ‘mold’ to your body, these for example:
