Would you tattoo your nails?
Needle Nails is the lastest craze on Instagram
Those looking for an exciting new tattoo may be interested in this unorthodox new trend. To compliment the to ink on your inner lip and a thorn on your rib, nail tattoos could be an option. The idea came from stylists who had hour-long manicures only to ruin their nails within minutes. The solution? Tattooing a beloved design onto your nails. The tattoo needle never penetrates through the nail, simply sweeping the surface.
It’s a practice championed by fashion consultant Ambie Stapleton. She worked with Rick Owens, before teaming up with tattoo artist Christian Boyd. The duo experimented with solutions to spoiled manicures and discovered the untapped potential of nail tattoos. They then founded Needle Nails, operating out of New York and creating a hefty buzz in the city and on Instagram. “Knowing that you have this permanent thing that’s not actually permanent — it’s a little bit of a safety zone”, Boyd told Vogue.
Those thinking of a little ink but not wanting to commit to it for forever should look no further. For more information and a look at existing designs, head over to Instagram.
