Ink at #SXSW: temporary tattoo roundup

While the Tattoo Manufacturing team didn’t make it to Austin for SXSW this year, we’ve kept an eye on our Twitter feeds and blog rolls for play-by-plays from the festival. Every year at SXSW, companies unveil new products and break out creative new marketing strategies, and 2012 was no different.

We’re biased, but our favorite word-of-mouth marketing tool is custom temporary tattoos. Here are our favorite custom tattoos that created buzz at this year’s SXSW.

First, the brands who gave out fake ink during SXSW Interactive:

1. SlideRocket:

4. Rackspace – these tattoo “sleeves” aren’t actually temporary tattoos, but we still love them!

Bands got in on the temporary tattoo fun during the music-focused portion of SXSW.

The band Miike Snow promoted their new album, Happy to You, with scan-able QR code temporary tattoos.
