Glam in the Gulf: Get a glitzy tattoo in real gold
Prices vary, starting from $50 and up
Forget the henna and flashy jewellery, the latest accessory trend for the fashion-conscious party-goer in Dubai is a temporary tattoo made of real gold.
A new business in Dubai is offering temporary 24-carat gold tattoos as the ideal body adornment for weddings and other special occasions at a modest starting price of $50, an affordable option given rising gold prices.
Precious Skin has two outlets in Dubai - one at the luxury, sail-shaped Burj Al Arab hotel - which will design and apply body tattoos made of 99.9% gold or platinum to add a bit of glitz to your personal style.
