Maybe it's commitment-phobia, maybe it's an aversion to needles,* but some of us just won't get a tattoo no matter how much we want one. Thank goodness crafty crafters on craft site Etsy have come up with a solution for those who want to be inked without all the hassle.
That's right, kids, geeky temporary tattoos are real and they're the perfect way to complete your outfit or your Halloween costume. I've combed Etsy and found 17 awesome ones perfect for cosplaying or just a night out with friends.
Temporary eyelid tattoos are perfect for dressing up as Effie or other Capitol citizens from Hunger Games.
I can't remember if any of Serenity's crew had this tattoo, but I still think it's just the thing for your Firefly inspired costume.
Pair this with a simple black tank and jeans and you'll be a dead ringer for Tris of the Divergent series.
This On/Off button isn't for any particular character costume, but it's absolutely perfect for an android. Place it on your wrist, the back of your neck, wherever and bam! Instant costume.
And, now on to the non-costume related portion of the evening...
These two collarbone temp tats are a stunning substitute for a necklace. I couldn't decide if I liked the Wonderland...
or the Game of Thrones one better, so you get to see both.
These two cute Doctor Who tattoos are perfect no matter which Doctor is your favorite. Choose from a Weeping Angel...
or a Sonic Screwdriver.
Oh look! It's one of my army of murderous unicorns spreading glitter and mayhem! Or at least I like to think that's what inspired this temp tattoo.
This isn't particularly geeky but I just love it.
I am a cat lady!
Daaaang. This One Ring to Rule Them All is hot.
*Maybe it's a wise decision I will never need to regret when I'm 82.
