Large Wings Temporary Tattoos This temporary tattoo's a twofer. Both temporary tattoos are examples of the use of black and gray in tattooing. The shading on the feathers adds some depth and dimension to the smooth curves of the wings. Separating the wings makes it possible to place one on each shoulder blade. You can pair them together as they are, or try whatever combination you would like. Between the two is the Egyptian ankh standing on its own as a symbol of eternal life. Fortunately, your temporary tattoo's life isn't eternal. It can last up to a week, though, so you will have plenty of time to enjoy it.
