Upsize Your Summer With These Temporary Tattoos
We're probably all somewhat thinking of getting a tattoo. Perhaps you're still ink-less because you haven't decided on what you want to get or maybe you just don't want to have a permanent one.
This summer, feel free to mark yourself with some art with these Upsize tried and tested temporary tattoos!
The Skin City's temporary tattoos were the first ones we got to try. Their tattoos are sold by sets perfect for those who just can't choose one.

We tried their Black Live Love Wander set to see how realistic their tattoos would look.
Basically their tattoos are similar to the ones you probably also used to play around with when you were younger. It's the two-step peel-off-transparent-film-and-dab-the-back-of-the-paper-with-water kind of tattoo.
We placed ours on the back and one side of our wrist and lasted us about 3 days before it started peeling off.
YAAS, YOU SHOULD TRY IT GURL because It's Philippine-based so you are sure to receive your package within 1-2 business days if you're in Metro Manila. It's so perfect as an accessory for a quick weekend getaway.
Only downside of this is we think it's a little bit pricey for it's kind. Cause I think there's some of these in Divisoria too. Or I dunno. It's our opinion. But we love it. K! Next!
Self-proclaims as the two-week tattoo, Inkbox Tattoos are formed with fruit-based formulas from 100% organic ingredients. Inkbox is not henna because it does not leave an orange-y base the way henna does. Instead, it leaves a dark blue mark which turns to a black shade which makes it look like the real deal!
Inkbox Tattoo in Eldritch, $19
They sell per design. We got "Imagine" and "Eldrich" and immediately tried it on. Inkbox is based in Ontario but does worldwide shipping so it's kind of costly. But we definitely knew it was legit cause there's a special way to apply their inks.
We also tried on the "Imagine" on our inner wrist. Inkbox mentions in their site that since this area is most exposed and usually rubbed on to other stuff, the tattoo might not last as long as 2-weeks.
They were right about this. But ours lasted for a week and 2 days until it vanished completely.
YAAS, YOU SHOULD TRY IT GURL because it's super worth it cause the designs are unique and long lasting and it really looks so real. Our friends totally believed we had real tattoos!! Plus, they have a really awesome beneficiary. They are extending help and aid to the indigenous people of the Darien Gap in Panama since most of their ingredients are from there.
Only downside of this is that it can be pricey and you have to wait a bit longer than 1-2 business days. But hey! It's worth it. So just make sure you order ahead of time.
