Beauty Trend: Freckle Tattoos Are Now A (semi-permanent) Thing

Once upon a time, freckles were considered such aberrations that women would do anything to get rid of, or at least conceal, them. Talk about an about-face: Now, freckles are downright desirable. Topshop and other beauty purveyors sell ‘freckle pencils’, while Kickstarter-funded company ‘Freck Yourself’ offers stencil-like adhesives that will leave your skin all sun-kissed and speckled. But hardcore freckle fetishists can go a step further: They can get these spots tattooed on their faces. Semi-permanent freckle tattoos use pigment in lieu of ink, can last up to three years and cost about $250. But while drawing spots on one’s face is one thing, getting them tattooed is quite another. For one, a needle can puncture the skin too deeply, or the tattoo artist can use inks that may cause infections. ‘Because this is your face, it’s important that you do your research and find artists who aren’t afraid to show their portfolio and healed work’, Montreal-based tattoo artist Gabrielle Rainbow tells NewBeauty. ‘Even if this is semi-permanent, there are risks’.
