Freckle Tattoos Are The Instagram Trend No One Saw Coming
People are making their faux freckles permanent.
Freckle pencils have been a thing for a while, but now people are taking their love of them a step farther and getting them permanently tattooed onto their faces.
While unexpected, the trend has become a bit of a thing on Instagram and we're seeing more and more people actively adding freckles to their look and showing off the tattoo process online.
Cosmetic tattooing definitely isn't a new thing, but it's kinda cool to see freckles becoming a thing after so many years where any discolouration of the skin was widely seen as an 'imperfection'.
And now even those who don't naturally freckle when the sun comes out are getting in on the trend.
If you're interested in getting it done, tattoo artist Gabrielle Rainbow tells Newbeauty: "When they are freshly done, [the freckles] will appear swollen, almost like bee stings.
"The swelling will go down within a couple hours, and you'll be left with your cute, fresh freckles. Over the course of one to two months, the colour will soften dramatically and look more natural."
She adds: "They will fade naturally with time, and if you wish to keep them, you can always get the colour boosted whenever you like.”
But what do you reckon - would you try this trend? Let us know with a tweet to @MTVUK.
