nail tattoos


Just when you think the beauty industry can't get any weirder, people start getting permanent nail art. 

It has come to my attention that nail tattoos have been growing in popularity, and I'm intrigued. 

My first thought? 'Jesus, that sounds like one painful procedure!'

However, according to Christian Boyd, a tattoo artist, the process of nail tattooing is actually completely painless. 

The tattoo needle doesn’t actually pierce the nail or touch the skin, it only skims the surface – hence the lack of pain. 

And while the ink is technically permanent, your nails are not.

The tattoo will simply grow out with your nail, and then you can start all over again with a new design. 

“Knowing that you have this permanent thing that’s not actually permanent—it’s a little bit of a safety zone,” Boyd said to Vogue recently.

And while I may have been a bit unsure at first, I am now totally convinced by this groovy new beauty trend (and I desperately want to give it a go).

If you find yourself in NYC in the coming months, you can visit the Needle Nails shop in the East Village and give it a whirl.

Just take a look at these amazing nail designs, and try not to fall in love.

We are big fans of tattoos, especially when they are tiny and adorable (although we enjoy large, intricate ones also.)

So naturally, when we discovered the latest tattoo trend, we were more than intrigued. 

More and more people are getting inked just under their nails, and on their fingers, and we honestly love it! 

These tiny tats sit just above the nail on the end of your fingers, and they’re all over Instagram lately (we can see why!)

As cute as these tattoos are, we're warning you that they're not for the faint hearted. 

I have tattoos, and they're painful (a bearable pain), but finger tattoos are up there with the worst of them – OUCH! 

So if you are a tattoo veteran, go for the fingers, but I don't recommend them as a first tattoo experience. 

Check these out, and let us know your thoughts:
