Temporary Tattoos: An Easy Alternative to Face Painting

May 21, 2012

Last week, we announced our first-ever, birthday party-themed Pinterest contest! Get the scoop on how to enter.

To jump-start your birthday brainstorming, we’re sharing our tip for streamlining a favorite party activity: face painting. Here’s the tip….it’s simple, but (we think) pretty earth-shattering. Instead of dealing with messy face paint at your next birthday party or backyard bash, try using quick, fun, no-mess temporary tattoos!

Temporary tattoo on face instead of face paint

Why use temporary tattoos instead of face paint? We’re glad you asked.

Temporary tattoos are:

  • Faster than face paint (30 seconds. Beat that, paint.)
  • Less messy than face paint
  • Easy to remove (Tape/rubbing alcohol/baby oil. Read detailed temporary tattoo removal instructions.)
  • Designed by professional artists (so anyone can apply pro-looking designs!)

Set up a temporary tattoo “station” and watch the kids (and adults!) line up. All you need are tattoos (we’ve got that part covered) and a wet cloth. Each tattoo can be applied in 30 seconds or less.

We’re excited to introduce our newest additions to the 3,000+ tattoo designs available on baby shower tattoos!

Our pro tattoo artists have come up with designs specifically made for celebrating baby boys:

Swim Team Tattoos – Eat My Bubbles!

May 7, 2012

Early May means temperatures in the 90s here in Tucson, and that means one thing to a lot of kids we know: swim season!

As you gear up for morning swim practices and all-day swim meets, consider adding some fun to your team’s routine with team spirit temporary tattoos.

One of our favorite local swim teams, the Catalina Terrace Marlins, shows their team pride every summer with fun custom tattoos. Temporary tattoos stay on in the shower and in the pool, so they’ll last through even the most competitive relays and dives.

Fraternities and sororities get creative with custom temporary tattoos

April 26, 2012

We hear from a lot of fraternities and sororities who are looking for the perfect temporary tattoo. Greek members already have tons of T-shirts. So, mix things up by ordering temporary tattoos. Tattoos are a fun way to show your spirit (and show off your letters) and, unlike T-shirts, they don’t take up space in your drawers.

Here are the top 4 ways that fraternities and sororities are using Tattoo Manufacturing temporary tattoos.

1. Rush/recruitment

Show your spirit at your house and around campus during rush season by wearing Greek letter temporary tattoos.

2. Bid Day

Help your new members celebrate on Bid Day with fun temporary tattoos! Some groups order several different designs so that each pledge class has a slightly different tattoo.

3. Fundraisers, philanthropy events, and parties

Share the spirit at your fraternity or sorority’s big events. Consider handing out temporary tattoos to everyone who attends your fundraiser or party, or sell the tattoos to help support your chosen non-profit.

4. Representing the fraternity or sorority at school-wide events like football games

Show your school spirit! Give your members temporary tattoos to wear at major school events (we’re talking sporting events, pep rallies, graduation, and even move-in day).

Both national groups and local chapters can order temporary tattoos with Greek letters. The minimum order starts at $45 for 100 custom temporary tattoos. All you need is an idea, and we can make a tattoo for your group! Get started at with your custom tattoo order today!
