Seventh Skin sells handmade tattoos inspired by a variety of fandoms including Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Game of Thrones, and more. The designs are some of the most intricate we’ve seen for temporary tattoos, making them a great option if you don’t want to pull the trigger on the real thing. They come in a variety of sizes from large tattoos that can cover your whole chest to smaller versions perfect for your arm or wrist.

According to Seventh Skin, the tattoos will last at least four days and can last up to seven “with minimal moisture and abrasion.”  You will need additional tools to best apply the tattoos, however, including a kabuki brush, moisturizing lotion, and translucent cosmetic powder. Because the tattoos range in price from $2.50 to $20, purchasing the extra items shouldn’t hurt your wallet too much if you want them to last.

Whether you’re looking for something fun to wear to The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies on Dec. 17 or just want to let your geek flag fly some weekend soon, it’s worth checking these tattoos out. See some of our favorites below and find Seventh Skin’s whole selection on Etsy.
