Performing interpretative dance, creating statues using nothing but recycled takeout boxes or permanently inking a flaming phoenix onto your back are all ways to express yourself. If you’re the type that prefers the wash-off tattoos that come free with chewing gum, decorate your house instead of your body and get a wall tattoo to the value of R400 from mywalltattoos.com for R200.
While decorating your walls with chalk drawings and framed photographs is the way things have been done since man first started breathing air, a stray splash of water or stampeding child could be the end of both. Wall tattoos are the simplest, quickest way to add some flavour to the wonderbread of your plain walls without having to buy a hundred tins of paint. The self-adhesive vinyl stickers can be easily applied and last for as long as you want them too. If you get bored with your tattoo, you don’t even have to worry about laser-removal or repainting the whole house – a hair-dryer and a little patience is all you need.
Whether it’s a tribal phoenix or a purple tulip, mywalltattoos.com provide nearly two hundred designs for you to choose from and squeak with delight over. Decorate your bathroom walls with a forest of trees and turn every bubble-bath into a woodland adventure, or plaster your ceiling full of flying birds; there’s no limit to what flat surface you can stick your tattoo on. You can even get a tattoo of a beetle for your Beatle named “BlueBug” if that’s what your cup of tea, but it won’t last as long as it would on a wall.
Delivery to your door within a few working days also means you don’t even have to leave your couch to decorate the wall above it. Not applicable for postal delivery though.
Tattoo Fact: During the early 1600’s, the image of a thermometer mysteriously appeared on every single wall of a village in Amsterdam. Shocked by the strange sight and their inability to remove the image from their walls, locals later dubbed the village ‘haunted’.
