One tattoo trend that has been continuing to gain popularity on social media sites, such as Pintrest and Instagram, is cosmetic freckle tattoos. Fake freckles are currently very popular with musicians and models. Some use makeup to obtain the freckled look, some use temporary tattoos and others use semi-permanent ink for a longer lasting option. Recently, a young woman went viral on Instagram for giving herself freckle tattoos.
She made a thread to share what it was like with others, and to show the healing and fading process. One of her reasons for giving herself the tattoos was to save money. A one-hour freckle tattoo session could run about $200. She purchased some sterilized equipment, watched a number of tutorial videos on Youtube, and took the plunge. According to her Instagram post, she is very happy with the results. She also notes that even though they do not look natural, that was not a look she was going for.
The concern with stories like this that go viral is that DIY tattoos can be very dangerous and there will be others who will try to save money on cosmetic tattoos by doing it themselves. With any tattoo you run the risk of infection, allergic reactions to the ink, scarring and problems with the tattoo placement or design. Attempting this without a trained and licensed tattoo artist increases the risk of problems occurring.
