Your toddler asked what the Chinese character on your lower back was called. Your answer: a mistake.
When it comes to tattoos and piercings, you’re hoping to table the conversation — at least temporarily.
Poppy Drops to the rescue. The pierce-free, temporary tattoos are slivers of art that look like stud earrings, but have none of the pain or responsibility. Themed collections include I Can Fly, with birds, ladybugs, and butterflies; In Bloom, a rainbow selection of pansies, peonies, and daisies; and Glitter, an assortment of rainbows, unicorns, and gemstones.
To apply, simply cut out an image, moisten the back with water, and press to an earlobe as you would any temporary tattoo. The earrings come off with a little rubbing alcohol or baby oil.
Unlike the dolphin at your hip bone.
Available at poppydrops.com, $8 for twelve pairs.
