Temporary Tattoos, Beauty's Baddest It-Accessory

Fake ink isn't destined for county fairs anymore. In 2010, forward-thinking designers like Rodarte, Chanel, and Jean Paul Gaultier elevated fashion's newest It-Accessory: The temporary tattoo. Now, the body art trend is still going strong with additions from Beyonce to Betsey Johnson, and splashed across the fashion blogs world-over. Who knew that the stuff of street bikers and gangs would cross over to couture?
