BUT LOOK AT ME NOW, GUYS!
If you follow me on Instagram, Twitter, or Facebook, then you probably saw the pic I posted of my new, super sweet tat. Except I pulled a good ol' fashioned prank on you guys and my Blade Runner tattoo is only a temporary tattoo from TATTONOMY.
Temporary tattoos seem to be the newest trend in start-ups lately, ever since Tattly kersploded on the scene. I'm totally not complaining because these aren't your coin machine tattoos full of "I Heart Mom" trucker tats or temporary tramp stamps. Nope, these are awesome and tasteful and last a really long time.
While Tattly focuses mostly on cutesy designs, Tattonomy is all for geeks with a minimal approach. In fact, it was made by a couple of geeks who were attending Comic-Con one day. Then this bright idea came down from the heavens and they set upon their journey, eventually creating temporary tattoos based off of Star Wars, Legend of Zelda, the famous Konami code, and yes, my Blade Runner tattoo.
The design was super easy to apply and Tattonomy ships internationally but you get free shipping if you live in the United States or United Kingdom. You also receive two sets for $5--the same amount for Tattly designs--and these are absolutely gorgeous in real life.
I think the idea of adult temporary tattoos are a great way to try on different designs you've been thinking of getting. You can give it a test run without having to commit fully to ink, which isn't so temporary. Or, if you just want to relive your childhood and wear temporary tattoos and feel cool, that's fine too.
With that said, I have made it a goal to overcome my needle fears and actually get this exact Blade Runner tattoo for realsies by the end of the year. :)
