Temporary Tattoos Are Back — And This Time They're Scented

Pinterest's most recent report has shown an increased interest in scented temporary tattoos, and we can totally see (and smell) why.

In case you were not already convinced that the '90s are totally taking over 2017, according to the latest trend report from Pinterest, temporary tattoos are picking up some serious steam. But it's not just the tats themselves that have people intrigued, interest in scented temporary tattoos (you read that correctly) have quadrupled over the last year, and TBH, we can totally see why.

The temporary ink designs are created with a safe and nontoxic ink that is infused with several different kinds of scents — much like our childhood scratch-and-sniff stickers. (Ugh. All the mems in one.) Tattly, a particularly popular scented temporary tat supplier offers over 15 variations that can last up to four days on your skin. Plus, they're created with vegetable-based ink that's FDA-compliant, so you don't have to worry at all what you're putting on your skin!

Designers Vincent Jaeannerot, a French watercolor painter who focuses mainly on the botanical/plant designs, and Julia Rothman, who spends her time creating candy-inspired masterpieces, design all of the tattoos, making temporary tattoos an official thing in our adult lives. (And we couldn't be more thrilled!)

The temporary tattoos come at a pretty decent price (Tattly sells their's for $18 for a set of 8), and come in a range of scents like rosemary, sage, peony, and even Ring Pop.

Whether it's a festival, a wedding, or just a Saturday night with the girls, get ready to take any occasion to the next level (and smell absolutely fab) with these scented temporary tattoos!
