Spring 2010 Trend – Chanel Temporary Tattoos

Posted by Lipglossiping On January - 17 - 2010

Nothing screams “I got a tattoo in the late 90s” like a tattooed arm or ankle band.

Chanel’s latest must-have accessory was recently showcased on the Paris runway and it’s just as well the 90s are back in fashion, ‘cos check these babies out!

“Les Trompe L’œil de Chanel”, a set of 55 individual tattoos priced at an eye-watering £49 will be available on the Selfridges Chanel counter from 1st March.

I think I’ll stick to the ones you get free with bubblegum… or if I really must indulge, there must be 101 purse-friendly alternatives out there.

What say you? Fabulousness or Folly?

    It’s wearable art, dahlink!

    Can’t say I’m much of a fan either.

  2. Rhamnousia says:

    They’re nice and all but you have to be like a size 0 to make them look good on you. I have massive thighs so I’d have the mix about 10 together just to get them to go around my thigh once.

  3. Charlie says:

    I think they are amazing! Too much money for me but I love them!

  4. Tali says:

    Im a tattoo fan but at that price You could get a real one!!

    nahh..looks messy and dirty ..dont like it *thumbs down*

  6. I’m not really loving these although I’m always changing my mind so who knows what I might think next week. The images released so far all look a bit chunky for my liking but I’d be interested in seeing if there’s any smaller designs in the range.

    And also at those prices – you could get henna or get an artistic friend and give her your Blacktrack and a 209?!

    And also (again)… when Cheryl Cole shows off her tattoo on her thigh we call it chavvy… but when its Chanel… it’s fabulous?

    Rant over.

    I say…I wonder why the leg on the right looks as thin as the wrist on the left. Ewwwwwwwww.

    Yuck yuck yuck.

    Nah-tastic.

    Sure – the tattoos on the skinny twiggy wrists and arms of these models look ok, but on your average, a little bit hairy, a little bit chubby female (I’m describing myself by the way) – NO.

    Adults and tattoo transfers = Lose.

    Kids and tattoo transfers from bubblegum packets = Win.
