When you think of temporary tattoos, bold graphics and brightly-colored designs likely come to mind. With her set of intricate fern and crystal tattoos, however, designer and self-described “Nature Girl” Victoria Foster of Pen & Plant Co. proves that impermanent ink does not need to be polychromatic to be eye-catching.
Each temporary tattoo pack comes with two large fern fronds and five small crystals inspired by Foster’s own outdoor adventures. Both designs are delicately drawn in black and feature an exquisite approach to detail. Reminiscent of vintage botanical illustrations and rendered in vegetable-based ink, these ephemeral tattoos offer an elegant and eco-friendly way to pay homage to the natural world.
The illustrated ink creations are pre-cut, meaning they’re ready-to-wear as soon as you tear open the package. Once applied, each piece will last around 5 days, giving you the chance to experience—and experiment with—the beauty of body art without the commitment.
If you’d like to pick up your own Pen & Plant Co. tattoos, you can find them in the My Modern Met Store.
