If you want to add a little glitz and glam to your body, then do so by applying crystal tattoos.

What are Crystal Tattoos

Crystal tattoos can add a little bit (or a lot) of bling to your body. Crystal tattoos are a kind of temporary tattoo that is more a jewelry accessory than an actual tattoo. With normal temporary tattoos you need to clean your skin, wet the area and apply the tattoo and wait a few moments prior to pulling away the backing. What's left is a design that will crack, peel and wash away in a matter of a couple of ours. Crystal tattoos, unlike temporary tattoos, are crystals that are embedded on a sticker sheet and arranged in a pattern that you place directly to the skin and will stay put for several days.

Where Should You Put Crystal Tattoos

The great thing about these tattoos is that they can be put any place on the body. The final decision is up to you though. The point of these tattoos is for them to be seen and admired and to draw attention to the wearer. Think about what you will be wearing before placing crystal tattoos on your body. The size of the tattoo also dictates proper placement. Smaller tattoos can easily be placed on the face but larger sizes can find their way on other parts of the body including:

  • Shoulder blades
  • Arm
  • Chest
  • Buttocks
  • Thigh
  • Belly button

Certain tattoo designs are made to be placed in certain areas of the body and the belly button is one such crystal tattoo.

Styles of Tattoos Available

There are many designs of tattoos available. These designs can also come in various sizes so you can place them wherever you like. The only standardization for these types of tattoos is the ones made for belly buttons. These styles are circular in nature and the only difference is in the amount of crystals and the size of the design.
