It all started with the vajazzle. Bikini glamour is all the rage these days, with treatments down under being one of the hottest spa trends in recent years. Diamantes not enough for you? Then a vattoo is the next step – temporary tattoos for your nether regions. Why didn’t they think of that sooner?
A vattoo, similarly to the vajazzle starts with a Brazilian wax, clearing the area of any hair to make way for the vattoo of your choice.
You can choose from a variety of designs, which can be uniquely customised to your preferred style from cutesy hearts to whimsical cobwebs, to even glow in the dark ranges. The tats - or rather vats - are your own unique creation.
Once you have chosen the design, the airbrushing fun can begin (no painstaking needles here) and it takes only a swift ten minutes.
Professionally airbrushed on, unlike cheap temporary tattoos it does not leave a weird film or start to crack after a few days, but will simply fade away graciously over time. Vattoos can last up to a full seven to ten days (even with showering); just try to avoid any, er, friction.
The colours are also non- toxic so no need to worry about nasty chemicals on your sensitive skin.
Steer clear if you are a Brazilian wax virgin, as for this treatment the area will typically need to be clear for a clean vattoo palette. Of course, vattoos are not ideal for prudish types - be prepared for the therapist to get a bit up close and personal as they have to airbrush the design by hand.
The ladies from The Only Way is Essex and other celebrity fans of vajazzling such as Jennifer Love Hewitt should take note – the vattoo is the new vajazzle.
