Heading to the Playa this weekend with the rest of San Francisco? Have fun! And when you return to civilization after Labor Day, you can bring a bit of your Burning Man look back with you. According to Vogue, metallic temporary tattoos are so much more than festival wear: They are a form of body art that warrants mastery.
