Real Flower Tattoos - The Newest in Floral Fashion

These are temporary accessories that can be worn for a special occasion such as a wedding, a formal, at the races or a special day out.

Real Flower Tattoos can be made with fresh or dried flowers. They are similar to corsages but they adhere to the skin (with medical grade tape), therefore move fluidly with your arm or ankle, depending where they are placed.

Flower tattoos come in various designs and colours, that can be customised to match your outfit or personal style.

Flowers: you can opt for long lasting seasonal blooms or preserved wild flowers, the choice is yours.

Placement: Arm, ankle or legs or all.
