One does not have to necessarily go to a tattoo parlour to get their favourite picture or name inked. The newest fad are metalic tattoos that shimmer and shine. With a quick and pain-free procedure that is as simple as sticking a sticker, the procedure is completed in a jiffy. The tatoos are available in various sizes, shapes and colours and can make your friends envious.
Presently, most of these tattoos are available online and a packet of these cost about Rs 200.
All you have to do is choose the tattoo you’d like, peel off the clear plastic surface that protects the tattoo and stick it on your skin, wherever you like.
The instructions include: cleaning of the skin with cotton and alcohol, press down a damp (but not a soaking wet) cloth or sponge over the tattoo. Hold it for 60 seconds. And voila! You have a fresh new tattoo that you can mix or match with your attire or even hairdo. But hang on. Before you rush out of your home to show off your new tattoo, wait for another minute so that it dries completely. Make sure that you don’t move the tattooed area so that it stays smooth. It will last for 3-5 days with proper care. If you feel your tattoo is not suiting the occasion or your wardrobe, you can just remove it with a quick scrub. Though there are no medical warnings, some users have expressed reservations about the safety of these metallic tattoos.
