Flash Tattoos: Just a Flash in the Pan?

When spotted from across the room, I was wondering what this woman had around her neck. It wasn’t moving, so it couldn’t be an actual necklace. What was it? A flash tattoo.

Flash Tattoos, a company founded in 2013 by Austin, Texas-based Miranda Burnett, has become a very hot trend, especially among the under-30 crew, and the beach community. It’s really quite clever, as you can get the look of a metallic tattoo or jewelry without the commitment to a life-time tat. (And no needles!) They last about 4-6 days if you take care of them properly.

It’s easy to mix them with your own bracelets.

And there’s so many options, from body chains to finger nail accessories.

The gal wearing the flash tat necklace also had a subtle leaf on her neck.

So what’s your opinion? Have you tried wearing them? Would you? Do you think this will be a long-lasting trend? I’d love to hear your thoughts!

  1. My girls have been wearing them for a while now, they are super fun! I may venture on our beach vacations, but probably wouldn’t wear them for everyday!

  2. The challenge for those of us from a certain vintage, is to find places that do not have sags, and creases that interfere with the tattoo.

    They are a fun hit. I could see a feather, or some such, on the inside of my wrist/lower arm with an arm party.
