WTF: ?????? 6/10
It’s 2017 and we no longer frown upon freckles, we embrace them with pride, and if we don’t have any, we tattoo ‘em right onto our face to showcase said pride.
There was a time when people with freckles used concealer to cover them up, in an effort to hide the specks of coloured skin on their faces. Now however, freckles are somewhat a fashion statement.

Super proud of how beautiful these #fakefreckles turned out on @bythestrange these #tattooedfreckles will last about 2 years, and will soften up and look more natural when they are healed.

fake the freckle until you make the freckle
Like the new gap in teeth trend, people are now deliberately getting ‘freckled’, by either drawing, or even semi-permanently tattooing freckles onto their faces.
Whilst cosmetic tattooing isn’t new (shoutout to my brows), the tiny ink freckles come with a wave of a trend in embracing natural beauty. Err… by unnaturally creating it.
This feels a bit like dress up
For all those times you looked in the mirror and thought, ‘my nose looks kinda lonely,’ or all those times the skin beneath your eyes just felt a little too empty, a new solution awaits.
Whilst the tat looks quite obvious at first, it gradually fades with time to look more natural, and disappears after around two years. It’s very similar to microblading, and reminiscent to eyebrow or eyeliner tattoos.
What do you think of the trend? Would you get inked freckles?
