I have a soft spot for anyone who names something with a simple -y at the end. I can be a lazy talker, and the easiest way to describe something is often by tacking a -y at the end, like chocolate-y, hipster-y and designer-y. I was probably destined to like Swiss Miss’ new temporary tattoo project, Tattly, without its tagline, but when I saw that the project was described as “designy temporary tattoos,” I was an instant fan.

Tina and a team of fantastic designers created a pretty impressive set of temporary tattoos for adults that make the idea of getting inked much less daunting and permanent. The $5 colorburst design by Jessi Arrington is my favorite so far, but there are so many great options from which to choose. Each one is affordable, fun and perfect for testing out body art without committing to something lifelong. Click here to check out and shop the full collection online. Congrats to Tina and her team on the fun new project. xo, grace
