Seriously Inspiring New Ways To Pull Off Flash Tattoos

We first caught wind of the Flash Tattoo trend last summer, when stylish girls started donning the temporary tats to the beach in place of real bling — you know, as one does. Since then, the metallic tats have turned into a beauty phenomenon, seen on everyone from big-name bloggers to our girl Queen Bey. The shiny designs also became all the rage at music festivals like Coachella, adding an instant hippie-chic vibe to every ensemble.
Like most trends, this one reached a saturation point. But, since we're not ready to let go just yet, we’re determined to find new, innovative ways to wear it for summer 2015 — and it looks like we're not the only ones. The possibilities are endless — and good old Instagram (you may have heard of it?) is proof.
After hours of patrolling the ‘gram, we were sufficiently in awe of all the pretty ways you can wear these tats. And, we found 17 rad Flash styles worthy of gracing your precious skin. (Note: What did people do before social media? #RealTalk.)    
So, whether you’re feeling so over flash tats or you’re still all about them, we’d be willing to bet you’ll feel more than tempted to try out some new styles after you see these fresh takes on the 2k14 trend.
