We have already seen a lot, but we haven't seen anything like that yet: tattooed nails! We'll tell you if it hurts as it looks.
The Needle Nails Instagram page is dominated by appealing black and white photos. You can see hands and also fingernails in the close-up. This is not a classic beauty salon account, but a kind of tattoo studio for nail tattoos.
Yes, you read that right, these are real ink tattooed tattoos on nails. The designs are minimalist, cool, and pretty detailed, which is amazing as our nails each have a fairly small paintable area.
The inventor duo of this new type of tattoo art are Ambie Stapleton and Christian Boyd. He's a tattoo artist and she's a fashion expert. The idea came to them when Stapleton complained once again that she never had time to paint her nails and that was why she only did everything at the last minute. And that leads to the fact that she arrives with her customers with smudged nail polish.
The two then began to experiment and invented a method of adding pretty tattoos to nails. Since only the top layer of the nail is penetrated with the needle, the procedure is also absolutely painless. And a nail tattoo like this won't last forever either. While it's relatively durable, the ink will fade after a while. It's a shame that they only offer their arts in New York, but maybe this new trend will spread a little further!
