Sun Tattoos: get a different one every season

If you love tattoos but hate the pain involved or you think you might regret it, try getting a sun tattoo, you only need the sun and your own melanin

Sun tattoos: the latest trend
Sun tattoos: the latest trend
Tattoos are definitely in, very trendy, and they get more and more fashionable, specially since the past few years. And they’re really very cool, but the painful side of the experience and the fact that they last forever, are good reasons for many people to forget the idea of getting a tattoo. Henna, used by some cultures, could be a good alternative, because it’s temporal, but it’s also a little bit messy.

So, how about the sun? Why not use the sun to get a tattoo? It’s cheap, comes out by itself, and it doesn’t hurt!

This is basically the idea that Yu-Chiao Wang had. Haven’t you ever fell asleep in the sun without realising you had half your body in the sun and the other half in the shade, and now you wake up with those weird suntan lines? The inventor of Sun Tattoos worked on this –let’s call it mishap, to transform it into a totally new concept.

Depending on the part of your body where you want your new tattoo, you can take a t-shirt, trousers or any other piece of clothing, then you draw your favourite design on it, anything you like. It could also work with a t-shirt that has already a design, then you cut it out to create the soft stencil, and wear it. Lay out in the sun, wait for the melanin to do its work. And you’ve got yourself a very unique sun tattoo. This can also work with the UV rays in sunbeds.

There are a few drawbacks. You still have to use suncream so you don’t burn your skin, they’re difficult to correct if you want any changes in the pattern once it’s done, and they’re usually monochromatic. But there’s also the advantages you don’t have to think twice to sun tattoo the name of your summer love ; if it doesn’t work –the love story, I mean– you only need to wait some time, and while time heals your heart, it will also make the marks on your skin disappear.
