A Temporary Tattoo of Your Best Friend Is a New Awesome Way to Show How Special They Are to You
French Etsy vendor, Lilimandrill, offers a new spin on the classic temporary tattoo and they’re very personalized. Each one is drawn by hand giving each buyer a unique work of art. Because of this, they can serve as a unique gift that shows your loved ones that you care.
We at Bright Side love artistic expression as well as doing something special for your friends and family, so we’re sharing a story that combines both.
You might remember getting temporary tattoos at school carnivals and claw machines as a kid, but these semi-permanent tattoos are something that even adults can enjoy. Designed to resemble a portrait, the tattoos take around 5 business days to make and last for around 2 to 3 days.
Because they don’t last forever, people are encouraged to custom order a tattoo based on their loved ones and share them on social media, helping to immortalize the image. Some people might be tempted to never use them and keep the emblems around the house!
A lot of these templates allow you to add an important date or phrase so you can order in bulk, making these tattoos great party favors. The images aren’t limited to simple portraits — people have also made requests using pictures of their family, pets, and even houses.
While a permanent tattoo might symbolize neverending love in a friendship, there are a lot of reasons why someone would prefer to get a temporary tattoo, whether it be for religious reasons or a serious fear of needles. Temporary tattoos let you avoid these issues, and a real friend would never expect you to make such a serious commitment.
If temporary tattoos aren’t your thing, Lilimandrill also offers stamps, mugs and custom illustrations. Of course, there are plenty of other ways to show the people in your life that you love them. If you want to personalize something else, Etsy alone offers customized socks, notepads, and even pocket knives.
