    17 Fake Tattoos So Good You'll Wish They Were Actually Real

    No "tribal" or weird sayings for me, thanks.

    Summer is here — the time of year when many of us wish we were (more) covered in tattoos.

    But since summer is actually an awful time to get inked (see: sunburn, swimming, general soreness and itching that will ruin the fun and relaxing activities you had planned), here are 17 temporary tattoos that put your standard fakes to shame.

    1. This baller bouquet...

    2. ... some marvelous moons...

    3. ... and these terrific triangles, too.

    4. This hybrid hottie...

    5. ... and this delightful dragon.

    6. Plus a precious pinecone...

    7. ... and some wonderful whales.

    8. These creepy peepers...

    9. ... plus these badass blossoms.

    10. These origami instructions.

    11. (Why stop with just a paper plane?)

    12. The finest of ferns...

    13. ... these striped shells...

    14. ... and one totally radical rabbit.

    15. Plus these beautiful bugs...

    16. ... this funny little feather...

    17. ... and last but not least, this rock 'n' roll rose.

    Happy tatted up summer, everyone!
