DIY Flash Tats – Festival Fashion


Dear Diary,

Headed to Coachella this weekend?! Or just ready for an awesome outdoor music festival?! Then you’re gonna need your best festival fashion! (aka. Flash Tats!)

I somehow narrowly escaped the poorly placed, ironic tattoo during my teenage years… Phew! But that doesn’t mean I don’t want to fully part take in the temporary tattoo craze!! However, I also find it difficult to spend $25 on something that only lasts a couple days. Enter my DIY solution – Homemade Flash Tats!

1. Place the piece of lace on your desired location.

2. Use your paint or ink pad (FYI – this didn’t work as well, and I went back over with paint.)

3. Let the paint dry. Lift the lace up and free hand any spots that need sprucing up!
