Dubai 24-carat Gold Temporary Tattoos.

Precious Skin, a business in Dubai, introduces the latest accessory trend for the fashion-conscious rich people : a temporary tattoo made of pure, 24-carat gold or platinum.

The starting price for the temporary skin art is $50, but it can go up to a dazzling $5.500!

“It’s like jewelery for the body, but it’s also fun,” says Arnaud Flambeau, managing director of Precious Skin. “The tattoo is like a second skin and very comfortable to wear. They are ideal for weddings, parties or special occasions.”

The idea originated from Japanese designer Nobuhiko Akatsuka in 2006. A thin film of gold or platinum is used to make the temporary tattoo which is then applied to the skin.

Precious Skin plans to open their temporary golden tattoo outlets trough out the entire Middle East. It is likely this will become a worldwide trend for the rich and the famous.

The tattoos can last for up to a week.
