Flash Tattoos x The Miracle Foundation are back at it again! We’re super excited to officially announce the launch of Karisma (phew – that was a tough secret to keep!), the second collection of henna-inspired metallic temporary tattoos supporting The Miracle Foundation’s efforts to empower orphans in India to realize their full potential.

For those of you babes who’ve been sparkling with us since the beginning, you might already know that The Miracle Foundation and Flash go way back. We first partnered up with them in July 2014 with the debut of Sheebani, which remains one of our top-selling collections to date…all thanks to you babes with a heart of gold! Following in the footsteps of Sheebani which was named after the orphan who served as inspiration for the charity’s founding in 2000, we loved how the popular Indian girl’s name Karisma means “miracle” or “gift” – a nod to the The Miracle Foundation and the difference each and every single one of you Flashionistas who purchases a pack makes in the lives of orphan children.

So, what exactly makes the new Karisma collection obsession-worthy? There’s like 10000 reasons! The collection includes four sheets of AMAZING body jewelry tattoos designed to be worn as cuffs, bracelets, anklets, necklaces, underneath the ribs, and more…we’re talking major statement pieces paired with dainty little decals for the perfect balance. You’ll sparkle in shimmering shades of metallic gold, silver, black, white and green for some extra wow factor. 5% of all proceeds from the sales of the Sheebani and Karisma collections benefit The Miracle Foundation so you can look good while doing good! A sprinkling of the body bling featured in the pack was hand-drawn and painstakingly digitized…each sheet was made with love and lots and lots of patience. Come to speak of it, these tats were designed exclusively for The Miracle Foundation so you won’t find it anywhere else except FlashTat.com…oh, and all those awesome shops that stock it.

Shop Karisma, and show us how you’re getting golden for a good cause!  Tag @flashtattoos @themiraclefoundation #flashtat #OrangeisforOrphans on social media!

The Flash office is buzzing with excitement over this week’s latest launch – the Karisma collection, a beautiful henna-inspired collection benefiting The Miracle Foundation. For our second collaboration with this incredible non-profit, we teamed up with Brit babe Olivia-Fayne – the super talented artist behind the gorgeous and intricate tattoo designs from her namesake business ‘Olivia-Fayne Tattoo Design’ – to co-design this exclusive pack.  Today, we’d like to introduce you to the gal behind the pen and paper with a little q & a!

How did you get your start designing tattoos?
It started off as a hobby, I drew the design for my own tattoo as I wanted to create something totally original that only I had. I posted it on Instagram and from that a few people got in touch asking if I could design one for them. Over time, things just continued to grow naturally until it became a legitimate business.

Each of your designs are totally custom. Walk us through what that process looks like.
Customers start by sending their visions and ideas, including anything they would like the design to represent. Once I have this initial brief, I aim to bring the idea to life as a piece uniquely deigned for them as an individual. I start with a rough pencil version which is sent over to the customer to check out. Then, if they are happy, I finalize the design as an ink version. If any amends are requested, then I do those at this stage and we work together to get the design perfected. No design is created the same, they are one of a kind specifically made for the client!

People are often surprised to know that not all of us gals on the Flash team have permanent ink! Tell us a little bit about the tattoos that you have.
I’ve always wanted original pieces/designs for myself, so I just began designing ideas that I personally really liked. Each piece I’ve created at different stages but I always try to design new tattoos that compliment the others around it. I’m currently looking to add to the ones on my right arm by designing something for the bits in-between the current ones to link all of the designs as one, I don’t know what that will be yet but I guess time will tell!

Who would your dream celebrity client be to design a tattoo for?
I’d have to say Rihanna, mainly because her tattoo styles are similar to mine. I love her recent Puma ‘creepers’ collab! Rihanna, if you’re reading this, hit me up…let’s make some new special edition ones! 😉

What are your fave places to find inspiration?
I often use an app called We Heart It – for anyone who’s not heard of it, it’s a little like Pinterest/Instagram. It’s basically an image bank full of amazing ideas/images/photos etc  and it’s a great place to get me in the mood for drawing and designing. It’s sometimes quite hard to just sit down and start drawing from scratch…all designers will tell you sometimes you get ‘artistic block’ and just need to find some inspiration to spark things. We Heart It and Instagram are great sources of inspiration for me to light the fuse and kick start my drawings. :)

So, fun fact that people might not know ….we actually ‘met’ on Instagram! What Insta feeds are you especially loving lately?
I’m constantly scrolling through my Insta feed (on an almost unhealthy level) ha ha! But there’s so much amazing work out there. Social media has his good points and bad points, the downside is that my work is constantly being copied without my consent, but the flip side is it has provided me with a platform to showcase what I can do, something that would have taken years without this new world of instant connection. There’s a few that I follow closely, be it individuals or larger companies:

On the homeware side, I love Anthropologie (@anthropologie). I’m currently working on a homeware collection and for me to work with these guys would be a dream!

Alex Bawn (@alexbawntattoo) is one of my favorite tattooists to follow, and more than capable of bringing my designs to life. She’s top of my list to recommend when people ask me for suggestions of good tattooists.

Minnie Mcgee (@minniemcgeeart) is actually a friend of mine who creates some amazing stippling based designs, her prints are awesome!

I recently found out about a Ian Berry (@ianberry.art) away from Instagram (he lives in my apartment). He designs pieces using only denim. It’s a really niche and unique concept and he’s insanely talented and def worth checking out!

Being a busy gal with a long list of clients to design for, we imagine you’re always on the go. What are a few items you never leave home without?
So I’m pretty forgetful (I think that’s part and parcel of having the ‘design’ gene) but when I can remember, I always take my pens and a pad to scribble ideas down. Hair bobble is a must, I cant seem to create with my hair down (imagine “Lemony Snicket’s A Series Of Unfortunate Events” – just like Violet, ideas seem to come to me once my hair is out of the way!). Kalms tablets which help my anxiety and a pair of headphones so everything has a soundtrack to it. I hate silence!

Thanks for giving us a glimpse into your fab life, Olivia! Be sure to follow her to stay up to date the with her latest happenings, inspirations and projects!

We love the babes at Beach Bunny Swimwear and Galore like woah, so we were extra amped when they invited Flash Tattoos to add some sparkle to their “mer model” squad for the presentation of their 2017 collection at Miami Swim Week! This show was basically our summer beauty #goals, babes. The perfect braids (we still can’t get over how amazing they were), the headpieces, the glittery make-up, the Flash Tattoos (it was a mix of Zahra, Goldfish Kiss, Lena, and Sofia packs if you wanna cop the look), the jewelry…and of course, the BIKINIS!

Get the full beauty scoop here, and we’ll see you babes under the sea….or at least Flashing us your tats on Instagram!

For the second year in a row, we teamed up with our bff’s at Luli Fama to add some sparkle to their Miami Swim Fashion Week runway show. We had so much fun bouncing around ideas for a series of custom tattoos, all inspired by the super fun prints featured throughout the new collection. From the coordinated chaos of backstage to seeing everything come together as the models worked the runway, it was such a treat to be a part of the show. We just love how the cute and colorful little flowers and swallows Flash Tattoos looked with the suits! Kisses to all the Luli babes for the collab fun!

Now time to dish…which look was your fave from the show?!
