I remember I used to be the first in line at birthday parties and on vacation to get any kind of temporary body or face artwork. Whether it be henna, face painting, or those wash-on tattoos, you could count on me to have it. Now as I've grown older, my desire for something more permanent isn't quite as prevalent. While I admire tattoos from a distance, I'm both too chicken and indecisive to ever get one for myself. 

Basically, temporary tattoos are so much more than a fad. Many of us mostly see them as a leftover from our childhoods rather than a serious fashion staple — but one genius brand is now making temporary body ink for adults, and it's available at Target. 

Remember temporary tattoos?

The ones that we would beg our parents for a quarter for and immediately rush to the nearest water source to apply? They'd only last a few days tops, but we would feel like ~edgy~ adults while they lasted. Those were simpler days, and as we've gotten older, most of us have traded in the juvenile skin decorations for some much more intricate, permanent options. 

But what if we said that temporary tattoos are making a comeback?

And this time around they're made for grown-ups? Thanks to a genius temporary tattoo company named Inked by Dani, people of all ages can show off new and painless body art this summer that's easy to switch once you get bored. But this isn't for those ink lovers who are looking for something big — this is for the minimalist honeys who like their tattoos small and simple. 

They just got so much easier to buy.

Because the miniature pieces have found their way even closer to you. Last week, Inked by Dani made the lives of tattoo lovers and indecisive hunnies everywhere a little bit easier when it added its highly sought-after body placements to the brick-and-mortar and digital aisles of mega-retailer Target. 

There are so many to choose from.
