But how to get embellished without the toxins?

Non-toxic, stunning, jewelry-inspired tattoos that are sure to leave their mark on all who see them, their new collection, Karisma, features a give-back component. The second addition to their partnership with The Miracle Foundation, Karisma,is an Indian name meaning ‘gift’ or ‘miracle.’
Available in a pack of four sheets for $25, 5% of the sales from the Karisma Collection benefits The Miracle Foundation. Easy to apply and lasting from four-six days, this metallic and colorful mix of henna-inspired temporary tattoos was designed for the fashionista-with-a-heart-of-gold in us all. Featuring feel-good words such as ‘give,’ ‘love,’ and ‘receive,’ , and gorgeous hand drawn metallic designs by artist Olivia-Fayne Tattoo, the Karisma collection was designed exclusively for The Miracle Foundation, an organization revolutionizing struggling orphanages in India.
