I’ve seen things bubbling around for a while, but only now have I seen the images for myself. You can now buy temporary lip tattoos from a brand called Violent Lips, available in Selfridges. What the hell?! Who came up with this idea and who did they think would wear these – outside of a festival or fancy dress party at least? I do love the idea and think it’s innovative and different, but at £10 a pop they’re not cheap enough to buy just to play around with – although I’m mega tempted to grab some just for the kick of it.
The designs come in a variety of extremes, from the more ‘subtle’ (if you can call it that) poker dot to the full-on ‘out there’ American flag design. Going by this video they’re a bit fiddly to apply too, and seeing as they only last 4-8hrs is it worth the hassle? Would you tattoo your lips?
