Link of the Week: Dress Code to Include Temporary Tattoos

The Institute of Contemporary Art is hosting a gala this Friday, May 7th, and has requested that its 600 attendees accessorize their formal attire with temporary tattoos.

It makes sense that the art world would be the first to fully embrace temporary tattoos as mainstream fashion accessories.  Still, galas are traditional, formal events and basing a gala dress code around temporary tattoos is quite novel.

Will temporary tattoos formally included as part of the dress code become the norm?  It’s hard to say.  But what we do know is that temporary tattoos as fashion accessories are here to stay.  After all, if a major museum in Boston is requesting temporary tattoos, it will ripple through that local culture – and probably through other major cities.
