When it comes to tattoos, most adults assume that permanent ink is the only option. However, many artists and designers today are embracing temporary tattoos for adults, transforming the washable decals into ephemeral works of age-appropriate body art.

With delicate motifs, beautiful color schemes, and visually-pleasing typography, these short-term pieces put a sophisticated spin on the childhood staple. In this hand-picked selection of pieces, several artistic inspirations are apparent, from minimalist illustration to whimsical watercolors. Some—like Tattly’s set of inspirational ink—allow you to wear your heart on your sleeve, while others simply exist as an embellishment.

No matter the motif and regardless of style, however, each temporary tattoo proves that you’re never too old for some fleeting fun.

Embrace your inner child with these temporary tattoos for adults!
