While I wait for the weather to warm up so I can peel off the many layers I am still wearing, I am thinking about fun ways to dress things up once flip flop weather returns. Growing up, my Japanese mother always told me that only people who belonged to the yakuza (Japanese mafia) had tattoos, so my little girl mind translated that as "tattoos are bad". Yet temporary tattoos offer a great compromise when it comes to adorning yourself in a creative and fun way, without the commitment of forever - or joining the mafia! In the summer I live in flip flops and tank tops, so having a cute temporary tattoo on my arm is something that appeals to my eye. This summer, I think I'm going to give mom a little scare with a big floral tattoo!
