What does Topshop have in common with Chanel, apart from a legion of fashionable followers? As of last week, a range of temporary transfer tattoos! Just months after Chanel released its sought-after Les Trompe L’Oeil de Chanel Temporary Skin Art, the British retailer has introduced a collection of similarly stylish yet budget-friendly transfer tattoos.
Transfer and spray-on tattoos were a surprise staple on last year’s Spring 2010 runways; Rodarte started the craze in New York by painting its models with oversized, tribal tattoos, while Jean Paul Gaultier and Chanel both continued the trend in Paris.
The five-piece collection includes Chanel-inspired multi-chain tattoos that can be wrapped around your ankle or wrist, as well as time-honored tattoo motifs like birds, hearts, roses and wings. Fans can choose from a single tattoo sheet (priced between $10 and $15), or a package of transfer tattoos (priced at $15 each). The Topshop Transfer Tattoos are available at Topshop stores and online at Topshop.com.
