I’ve never been fully sold on tattoos, I love looking at the designs and I appreciate the work that goes into creating a successful piece of permanent body art.
But truly? I can barely decide which socks to put on in the morning. Choosing something as permanent as a tattoo would send me into some kind of mental turmoil treatable only by electroshock therapy. It is with pure joy then, that I discovered Jinny Rainbow.
Recently launched in Selfridges, Jinny Rainbow offers beautiful glitter body illustrations that last up to 7 days. The glitters and powders used are hypo-allergenic promising skin-friendly artwork for all.
You can choose between selecting an on the spot design undertaken by a body artist or if you would prefer attempting a bit of DIY designage (is that a word?) you can purchse handy kits to create personalised designs at home.
Spoiled for choice, Jinny Rainbow carries a selection of over 100 vibrant glitter pigments and shimmers plus 200 exclusive stencil designs.
How beautiful is that? My inner 4yr old is climbing the walls with excitement and trying to work out if I’ve got time to swing by Selfridges this afternoon for a nosey!
So how much would this kind of frivolity set you back? With prices starting from £5 for on-the-spot designs and from £30 for starter kits it’s not exactly gonna break the bank is it?
Do you need a bit of glitter in your life? I’m thinking a sparkly bluebird on my shoulder.. Zip-a-Dee-Doo-Dah and all that.
