Tattoos are not as taboo as they once were, but this does not mean that everyone should get one. They are permanent, and with today’s divorce rate, you can see that permanent is not something that we tend to deal with very well. You may love your tattoo, but in the years to come you may change your mind. They can fade, and become a symbol of something we would rather forget, or may just ended up looking silly when our life heads in another direction. This is why there are so many fake tattoos out there, and why they are becoming so popular.
When you use a fake tattoo, you don’t have to commit to something you may not like in five, ten or twenty years. You can get the latest trend in tattoos without making it a permanent accessory. Imagine one day you decide to go to law school. The big-breasted lady you have tattooed on the back of your hand is not going to help you out much. However, if you were to get a fake tattoo, you have the option of simply wiping it off. Most of them will stay on through a shower, but can be removed very easily with baby oil.
Some parents and schools are allowing a fake tattoo as a reward for good grades or good behavior. These tattoos can come in almost any theme and the parents can get them off very easily. It may help take some of the mystique out of getting a tattoo, and may show a child how easily you can get sick of seeing something on your skin day in and day out. Younger children often don’t even understand what a tattoo is, and my see a fake tattoo as just another thing that kids do.
If you can’t find what you are looking for when you search for a fake tattoo, remember that you can get them special made. You may be able to get almost anything you want, but you are going to pay for the artwork. You can print them out on your own if you want to, but the paper, so I hear, can be rather expensive. If you are a teacher, you may want to do this for your class (with parental permission of course) or if you are a budding artist, this may be a great way to make some extra money. You can print off your own designs and sell them for a profit.
