Because they eventually disappear you’ll have a never ending loop of artistic excitement, as you’ll always be able to try out new patterns and designs.

You can make the design yourself or search for one online. You can also throw a little tattoo-making party for you and your friends! The more, the merrier – both friends and tattoos!

2. Glittered Body Art


Now is the time for your childhood dreams to come true: get a tattoo that sparkles all over! You can use one color of glitter or go all out and use them all! Whatever floats your sparkling boat! Because children tend to be very passionate about glitter, use this opportunity to have a tattoo session for the entire family! Find the tutorial at I Love To Create!
