Temporary Gold Tattoos

A business operating from the Burj Al Arab luxury hotel in Dubai offers temporary tattoos made from gold:

Starting at AED200 for a small gold tattoo and AED400 for an equivalent platinum one, the temporary tattoos have been available in the emirates for just two months.

Originating from Japan, the tattoos are created from 99 percent gold or platinum foil that is applied directly to the skin. Application takes around 10 minutes.

200 AED is worth about 54 US dollars.

It's very crazy but I like that! Why not?
I tried the temporary gold tattoos of GoldSins, which is selling them in San Francisco, where I am.
At first I thought they were the same sold in Dubai, but I checked their website (http://www.goldsins.com) and they are Italian. Also the models looks different.
In any case I suggest you to try them before says they are not cool: compared to the classic tattoos they are extremely elegant and shining, nothing comparable to black inked temporary tattoos. Gold is not for all, but how many dollars people waste in other stuffs?

Well...as ridiculous as they are, I find these less ridiculous than some shit that some people who celebrate conspicuous consumption do. Putting pointless gold flakes in your meals (for $250 a capsule) just gives you sparkly poo; at least this has something tangible and visible for a couple days.
