11 Things You Need To Know About Beyoncé's Flash Tattoos

It's only good in theory to put one on your finger.

Posted on

Last month, Beyoncé announced her line of flash tattoos, which she designed with the company Flash Tattoos.

Here's what you need to know about them.

2. For 28 dollars you get 57 tattoos total on five sheets.

3. According to Flash Tattoos, the tats should last four to six days.

4. They go on easily – a lot like any other temporary tattoo.

Just make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of oils. After you take off the clear protective sheet, you put the tattoo face down and hold a wet cloth against it. After 30 seconds you can peel off the paper. Be sure to let the tattoo set for at least 10 seconds.

5. But if you put one on your finger, don't expect it to last as long.

On day one, it started out perfect. It was pretty, cute, and it fit nicely on my ring finger. Not an hour later, the "E" decided it wanted out, and somewhere between washing my hands and just living, the entire word "in" was like, "LOL bye sis!" It went from "Crazy In Love," to "Crazy Lov," to "Craz Lo," to "C" by day three. 😐 It was fun while it lasted.

6. Because these are, in fact, Beyoncé flash tattoos, there's at least eight different bee tattoos in the pack.

This one held up the best. Minus a little gap in one of the bee's stripes, it still looks perfect on day three. 🐝

7. Keeping with the BeyHive theme, there are also honeycomb medallions...

9. You can mix and match tattoos to make pieces that are big...

10. ...and small.

I'm not one for huge tattoo combos. I played with mixing and matching for a forearm design, and it was *perfection.* Minus some flaking from the top tattoo, this one has been doing pretty well by day three.
