Beauty Boo-Boo: Lip Tattoos


I'm so upset by this product. I used to love temporary tattoos when I was a kid.  I remember getting adorable butterfly ones (which is funny since I now have a real butterfly tattoo), and waiting patiently while my mom applied them.  I felt pretty cool at the time.

Then I grew up. Temporary tattoos no longer appeal to me.  So when I saw these Temporary Lip Tattoos by Violent Lips, I was alarmed.  They sell tons of different designs and they are applied exactly like the old school temporary tattoos we used to wear.  Supposedly they last for up to 48 hours, but I imagine that if you eat anything or even rub your lips together too roughly, the tattoo would flake off.

The site shows pictures of the individual tattoos being worn...and there isn't one look that is flattering.  I specifically hate the one pictured above.  The result is looking like you have some sort of lip disease with bumps and scabs.  Not attractive.

Below are some of the more ridiculous designs:

The American flag tattoo is particularly ugly.  Though the denim design is right up there. Prices range from $10-$15 for a pack of three tattoos.

Am I the only one who finds this crazily stupid??! Although on the other hand, they might be good for Halloween...
