tattooage: wild & blossom | book review

tatouage: blossom* | tatouage: wild* – £12.99

this post contains affiliate links

tatouage, both ‘blossom’ and ‘wild’ are books of mini prints, and temporary tattoos. within ‘blossom’ is floral and botanical imagery, and in ‘wild’, there are sea creatures, birds, butterflies and more. both contain over 100 beautifully drawn and coloured temporary tattoos.

i really like creative books that have this sort of interactive element to them. you can keep them as is, or you can cut out and use the tattoos, give them to friends, and put up the prints around your home. they’d also make lovely little presents.
