Since time immemorial humanity has seeking to beautify the self, by applying
paint to bodies, using jewelry and make up. In those days, this was an index of
social statute. Time has passed, but not much has changed! We still like to wear
jewelry, and we still paint out bodies calling it either tattoo, make up or body art. One would have thought there
is nothing left to invent in this realm! Well, there actually is!
Designer Yu-Chiao Wang has come up with the idea of a Sun Tattoo.
It is actually a 'wearable' cloth stencil - a robe, with a specific pattern. It
requires staying long enough in the sun or having a good use of UV rays to
leave on the skin a beautiful tattoo. The stencil covers only a part of your
body allowing sun to hit certain areas.
Says Wang: "Sun Tattoo is a soft stencil which can be used
for making the tattoo pattern on the skin by sunshine. It's better to use it
with sunless tanning cream."
Of course I would not want to endorse tanning since for the
most part it is dangerous but if you're one who can't stay away from the sun
and have a flair for the unusual, you might like this.
