We all know that tattoos can be rad. They can also be really bad. We're talking tribal armbands here, people. Getting a tattoo is a big deal (I have quite a few of them, myself), and they say that it's best to think about one for a year before going under the needle. But sometimes, you're in the mood for a cute little embellishment for just a little while, and we all know how cool it was as a kid to rock some temporary tatts from the quarter machines. While these temporary tattoos may cost more than a quarter, the quality and variety is also much better than the Power Ranger logo you rocked when you were 9 (no? was that just me?).
