totally tattooed- no needles necessary

It’s the middle of winter and you may be weary of your jewel-toned peacoat, black leggings and boots. So how do you spice up your winter look?

How about rocking a designer temporary tattoo?

Chanel debuted these beauties at their Spring-Summer 2010 fashion show in Paris. Each dainty tattoo plays a trick with the eyes- upon first glance, it’s hard to tell if they’re tattoos, or actual jewelry. Buy the pack of 55 and you’ll have a unique accessory for every night on the town.

Rodarte, who designed the costumes for Black Swan, used henna-inspired tattoos in its spring 2010 runway show. M.A.C. makeup artist James Kaliardos worked with the sister duo behind the brand for a month to create the tribal looking tattoos.  There aren’t any for sale, but if you’re feeling especially artistic, pick up some henna and use these as inspiration to try your own.
