First there are Jane Austen English bank notes, and now there are Jane Austen temporary tattoos.

A set of 22 on a website for quirky gifts called Archie McPhee features a lower back one that says “Impudent,” a Mr. Darcy tat (of course), as well as a “Bad Boys” one of the charming, yet disingenuous characters John Willoughby (Sense and Sensibility) and George Wickham (Pride and Prejudice). The description hails them as the “the temporary tattoos of the 1%” and urges bookworms to “scandalize your book club!”

However, the $7.00 item is currently out of stock — presumably because the Jane Austen Book Club bought them all.
