I currently have real tattoos, but these are a fun addition to my collection, and they're also fun for my nieces to wear! They don't last as long as I thought, the reason for the four stars, but they ARE stick-on tattoos. Sometimes they have a tendency to crack and peel, but I still enjoy using them. If I have an event to go to, I'll put one on for that. They are great as gifts, and just fun to have around. I highly recommend this product. It also comes in different styles, which I have all of them. Thank you, Birchbox, for selling a unique product that anyone can use!
