Chanel face tattoos: the new nail wraps?

Who would have thunk it? The most talked about feature of last week's extravagant 12/13 Chanel Cruise show was a beauty spot. But this wasn't just any old beauty spot, it was the unmistakable Chanel logo, in velvet temporary tattoo form.

The show (which I'm betting was at least in part inspired by Sofia Coppola's Marie Antoinette and Ladurée's scrumptious macarons) was a saccharine rush of pastels. Models wore cute candy crop bobs with blushing pink cheeks. The linked C's logo was almost an after thought, applied tear drop style.

This isn't the first time Chanel have forayed into temporary tattoos but this, er, experiment...well, what can I say? According to the Guardian there are no plans as of yet to market the temporary tattoos but surely it's only a matter of time before we see some dodgy knock-offs somewhere. Let's just hope no-one goes overboard and does what that girl with the stars on her face did.

This time last year, the world was buzzing about nail wraps, praising the wonders they could do to your finger tips. But with each WAH nail came a wobbly lined amature job. So are the Chanel tats set to follow in the nail wraps's footsteps? Will we see C's hastily applied in eyeliner to the cheeks of the masses? Unlikely, but I'm betting we'll see at least one of the celeb fashpack sporting a face tattoo in the next few weeks.

What do you think? Would you wear a Chanel face tattoo?
