Little Butterfly Upon My Wrist


One thing I have always liked the look of is cute little tattoos, but I wont ever get one because I don’t like the thought that they are permanent, I would have ink in my skin and the painful process of getting one. This is why I have often been a fan of temporary tattoos which only last for a few days or so.

I have been corresponding with a great company called Fake Tattoos who make authentic looking tattoos and this is where my little butterfly is from (thank you)! I’ve been testing them out to see how long they last and how good they are and I have to say I’m pretty impressed. I have had this butterfly on since Friday and it’s still intact after 5 days! It was also one of the easiest I have put on, so I would definitely recommend them. Have any of you got any tattoos? I’ve always loved the look of swallows as tattoos.

    Stunning butterfly – it really suits you.

    Tats are amazing, I have five.

    I have an African symbol on my neck called Sankofa, which means learning from the past. I recently learned that Silver from the show 90210 also has the same one!

    Then I designed a quill and eagle feather combined on my ankle to symbolize freedom and writing.

    And then I had a number tatooed between the dimples on my back for an EX BOYFRIEND when I was drunk in Thailand….. BIIIIG mistake!!! I got it covered up with some stars but unfortunately the memory is still there and I hate the stars!

    Good luck and if you do ever get one, best of luck!

    I always wanted something like that but with Hello Kitty <3 I'm waiting a few years to see where my career is going, and if I won't get a desk job, maybe I'll make a permanent one.

      You can always use make up to cover up tattoos if need be, or you could get it in a place that’s hidden!

    I’ve considered getting a tattoo many times, but I’ve never done it because I’m scared of the pain. I really love delicate small tattoos aswell, and the butterfly looks cute!

    Thank you for the lovely comment you left on my blog ๐Ÿ™‚ I really love tattoos too but I’m quite worried of the pain of getting a real one,too. Maybe I’ll eventually muster up the courage to get one ๐Ÿ™‚
    You truly have a wonderful blog :))

    Cute ๐Ÿ™‚
    I have a cross on my wrist.
    Yes, they are permanent. Yes they are painful.
    As is always a good idea: if you are unsure, don’t do it. Sounds like you are sure you don’t want one. Good for you. They can be especially deterring for job possibilities and so on.

    this butterfly is absolutely adorable! i love the idea of fake tattoos.. i think i’ll never dare to get one but always thought they looked really cute if done correctly. i love that you put this butterfly on your wrist – subtle yet visible enough for you to always see it!
