DIY – Tattoo tights

I love the look of tattoos and someday I would really like to have one. I think the old fashioned swallows are absolutely gorgeous. Besides that birds represent for me freedom. The freedom to do the things I really want to do. For now I want something just a little less ‘forever’. It’s a little bit like test driving a tattoo. Of course you could use temporary tattoos or you could just draw something on your body. But why not draw something on your tights? This way you can ‘wear’ your tattoo many times without it fading away!
