    You Can Now Get Temporary Recipe Tattoos On Your Arm

    Wave goodbye to messy cookbooks.

    Italian designers Marina Cinciripini and Sarah Richiuso have come up with an ingenious new way of helping you follow recipes in the kitchen – temporary tattoos.

    Literally encouraging you to “roll up your sleeves”, the illustrated designs are applied to your forearm with the addition of water and spell out how to create some traditional Italian dishes.

    The tattoos were initially conceived for a design competition last year, with Cinciripini and Richiuso coming second in the “ritual” category.

    The designs are said to put "our bodies at the core of cooking".

    The young designers are hoping to raise money for their venture on the crowd-funding site Eppela.
