Beautiful Forever - Temporary Tattoos

When I was a kid I was obsessed with temporary tattoos. I would cover my arms (and sometimes my face, much to my parents disapproval) in butterflies, spiders and unicorns. Temporary tattoos back then were pretty unoriginal and limited to ponies and fairies for girls and spiders and tribal for boys. We we starved of awesome grumpy cat and donut tattoos.

Recently, one of my fav bloggers & artists, Michelle from Creature Type told me about an exhibition she was taking part in: Beautiful Forever - A tribute to tattoos. You can check out Michelle's blog post about the exhibition here.

Beautiful Forever is a collection of temporary tattoos designs, designed by 40 contemporary illustrators. It's showing March 22, 2013 through April 12th, 2013 at Light Grey Art Lab Minneapolis, so if you're lucky enough to live close by, pop in and cover yourself in grumpy cat and lil bub tattoos! You can purchase the tattoos online here.

As a tattoo lover and also someone who's maybe a little too impulsive when it comes to permanent decisions, I love these temporary tattoos! What's better than wearable art that you can remove and replace when you want a different look?

Not only does this exhibition contain kick ass art work, but it's also for a great cause. Minneapolis tattoo artist Tom Strom was involved in a bad biking accident and needs back surgery. Proceeds of temporary tattoo sales will go towards Tom's recovery.
