Ever fall asleep on a tennis racket or some other such undesirable pillow and awakened looking like a low-budget horror movie? Or removed your favorite tube socks and discovered the marks of what appeared to be an incurable disease gracing your ankles? Luckily, our skin is an amazingly versatile organ that recovers, but what if these impressions could be used to our stylish advantage? With a little creative embroidery, you could be well on your way to making some cool temporary body art.

The Morning Message Pillow by designer, James McAdam, gives your loved ones a sweet hello before you’re even awake enough to open your eyes. You could stitch your own pillows with wordless designs, names, or personalized terms of endearment. Rise and shine, Shnooky-lumps! This could be the start of some cute (if embarrassing) bridal shower gifts.

If you’d rather confine your marks to less visible areas like your calves, Emily Jane Atkinson’s Tattoo-me boots and boot liners might be the way to go. These flowery designs consist of embroidery on leather with a little beadwork. According to Emily, the meaning behind these boot designs is sensual in a coming of age kind of way, but you could make your linings as racy or not as you’d like.
