These Undercut "Tattoos" Are Giving Real Ones A Run For Their Money

Not ready to commit to a real tattoo? Well, look no further... These undercut "tattoos" are a badass alternative.

I don't know about you guys, but every once in a while I get hit with that inevitable "OMG-I-need-a-change-right-now-brb-gonna-go-do-something-drastic" moments. These particular moments are both a blessing and a curse.

My first instinct is usually to do something very drastic- i.e., get a tattoo, or get a hole pierced into my body somewhere. My second instinct is usually to then step back, talk myself out of spontaneously getting a tattoo or piercing I might end up regretting, and explore other options. From there, I usually land on a hair change.

I have a long history of this. Pretty much every landmark of my life has been accompanied by some sort of epic hair change. Going through a breakup? Chop off all my hair. Quit a shitty job? Dye it hot pink. The list goes on and on. Changing your hair is a quick and effective way of doing something fun and crazy- without the permanence.

A trend that's been popping up a lot recently is "hair tattoos"- and no, I'm not talking about those horrendous peel-and-stick metallic things you literally stick onto your hair, temporary tattoo style- I'm talking about like, beautiful designs shaved into your hair. Barber shops aren't just for dudes anymore, and here's the proof.

Maybe it's a stretch calling a design in your hair a "tattoo," but one thing is for sure- It's art for your body, and it definitely makes a statement. The difference is, it's temporary. If you change your mind about it... It grows back. We can't say the same for tattoos.

Trips to the barber shop aren't just for the fellas anymore, and the versatility of this look is pretty astounding. Long hair, short hair, half and half- it doesn't matter; There's a way to make it work, and make it work well.

So, take a look at some of the most badass "hair tattoos" around- an equally cool, equally badass way to stand out and make a statement without the full-on commitment. Temporary body-modification, if you will. Would you guys rock this daring look?
