These are quite fantastic, and your friend has great talent. I was wondering if could be harmful to your health, and did some research. This is what I found:

I'm with you on this one, craftewoman. The sharpie tattoos are really, truly gorgeous. But... all those chemicals leaching into your skin concerns me.

I think the chemicals would only be a prob if there was long term exposure. Say drawing on yourself with sharpies on a daily basis. Then the chemicals would accumulate in your body and that's when you may see a problem. But for the most part, just once and a while I can't see it being to much of an issue.

Those are so, so, so pretty. Totally love them. Especially the white accents. (Is it white or silver? I've never seen a white sharpie....)

I agree with you spicytaco, anything in moderation. I will die I'm sure of other bad habits but this would be a fun way to embellish my soul when I feel a need for change. Too bad I don't know anyone with those skills, OH WAIT, my nephew does and he will be here tomorrow, even though he is more of a 'street artist'. I just don't have the sharpies here.

What a cool way to try out a "tattoo". I'd do it once in a while. I'm also wondering how long they last. It's probably like spray tan, where it depends on how often you shower and how hard you scrub.

Oh yes, and the artwork is exemplary.

I agree with some of the others about having that on ones skin...but DoooooooD!  those rock!  Seriously, your friend should look into tattooing as a job...she has some serious art skills and color skill! Dang. The wings and peacock...holy smokes. Very cool.
