April is National Humor Month!

April 16, 2012

Did you know? April is National Humor Month! We’re suckers for random holidays and celebrations – and we can’t think of a better way to celebrate a month of laughs, jokes and pranks than with temporary tattoos.

Here are a few ways to add a little fun to your day-to-day during National Humor Month:

1. Fake out your friends and family with a new (temporary) “tattoo”

Your spouse, parents, friends, or kids will be shocked when you come home showing off a brand new “tattoo.”

Pick your favorite (and most extreme) design for maximum shock value. Dragon tattoo on your forearm? Butterfly on your lower back? Our realistic and easily removable tattoo designs will trick even your most skeptical friends.

Surprise! It's a dragon (temporary) tattoo.

2. Make work fun by passing out temporary tattoos to your employees on a Friday afternoon

We love the idea of ordering motivational or custom temporary tattoos for a team bonding day. Tattoos that brand your employees as the “Best Team Ever” or tattoos with your company’s logo or slogan are a great way to add some fun to a humdrum week.

3. Entertain your kids with hand puppet and fingerstache tattoos.

Kids love it when their parents get a little silly. Have a play day and dress up with “fingerstache” mustache tattoos. The tattoos go on your finger, and when you hold them over your mouth you have an instant (and temporary!) fun mustache.

Or, put on a puppet show with our wide range of hand puppet temporary tattoos, starring aliens, horses, knights, and princesses.

Are Temporary Tattoos Safe? What Consumers Need to Know

May 6, 2011

Are decal (press-on) temporary tattoos safe? For most children (and adults!) the answer is yes. This type of temporary tattoo goes on painlessly, generally come off easily and is available in vivid designs that are popular with children. If decal temporary tattoos are legally sold in the United States, their color additives have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as cosmetics. This means the FDA has determined they are safe for “direct dermal contact”. The FDA has received some accounts of minor skin irritation, including redness and swelling, from this type of temporary tattoo but the agency has found these to be “child specific” and not significant enough to support any warnings to the public. Unapproved pigments, however, can provoke allergic reactions in anyone. Understand the types of temporary tattoos available to consumers and know what to look for when determining whether a temporary tattoo is safe.

Types of Temporary Tattoos: Know Them for Safety Reasons

Temporary tattoos are offered in several varieties. Decals (press-on) are the most common and the most easily applied. Airbrush-style tattoos are generally applied by a tattoo artist. Henna tattoos are painted on the skin.

Decal-Type (Press-On) Temporary Tattoos

The most popular type of temporary tattoo comes as a decal (press-on). The tattoo is an image printed on water-permeable paper. The paper is placed ink side down and applying moisture transfers the image to the skin. The FDA requires that decal-type tattoos use only pigments that have been approved for use in cosmetics; this means they are non-toxic and non-allergenic. They are easily removed with rubbing alcohol or baby oil.

However, not all decal tattoos conform to FDA regulations. The agency has issued import alerts for certain temporary tattoos made in China and Taiwan that include non-approved ingredients or which do not declare their ingredients on the product packaging. When choosing temporary tattoos the FDA advises that you look for such a label. Do not buy decal-type temporary tattoos that give no indication of the ingredients used to manufacture them.

Airbrush Temporary Tattoos

Airbrush temporary tattoos have become more popular even if they do require more of an investment, can be more difficult to achieve the look of a real tattoo, and may not last as long as press-on temporary tattoos. They are often sprayed on by an artist using a stencil with alcohol-based FDA approved cosmetic inks. The types of airbrush paints used for creating art or decorating clothing should never be used for tattooing, as they can be toxic and allergenic. Ask the tattoo artist what kind of ink is used and whether it meets FDA approval. Airbrush temporary tattoos are also easily removed with rubbing alcohol or baby oil.

Henna Temporary Tattoos

Another alternative is henna-based tattoos, which generally contain no additives. Henna is a plant-derived substance which is painted on the skin, staining it a reddish-orange to brown color. The semi-permanent nature of henna, the lack of the realistic colors which decal temporary tattoos have, and the time-consuming application process makes it a relatively poor option for children. If you do choose henna temporary tattoos ensure that they are pure henna. Dermatological publications report that allergic reactions to natural henna are very rare and the product is generally considered safe for skin application. Serious problems can occur from the use of henna with certain additives. The FDA and medical journals report that “black henna” temporary tattoos are especially dangerous.

“Black Henna” or “Pre-Mixed Henna” Temporary Tattoos

The FDA has warned consumers to avoid any temporary tattoos labeled as “black henna” or “pre-mixed henna,” as these can contain potentially harmful ingredients including silver nitrate, carmine, pyrogallol, disperse orange dye and chromium. “Black henna” gets its color from paraphenylenediamine (PPD) a textile dye approved by the FDA for human use only in hair coloring. In Canada the use of PPD on the skin is banned. Research has linked these and other ingredients to a range of health problems including allergic reactions, chronic inflammatory reactions, and late-onset allergic reactions to related clothing and hairdressing dyes. They can cause these reactions long after application. Neither black henna nor pre-mixed henna are approved for cosmetic use by the FDA.

Tattoo Kit Temporary Tattoos (Inkjet or Laser Printed Temporary Tattoos)

There are a variety of “temporary tattoo kits” in the marketplace for producing custom temporary tattoos in quantities as low as one. These kits generally include temporary tattoo paper, temporary tattoo adhesive and application sponges. The paper is printed on with an inkjet printer or laser printer.

Though the paper and adhesives are safe, they must be used in dye based inkjet printers which most people do not have. The inks which are generated by your inkjet color printer at home are probably not approved by the FDA for “direct dermal contact”. Can you purchase such ink from your local store, printer manufacturer or online? This will be very difficult.

Of lesser concern is the fact that the image quality of the temporary tattoos produced by these temporary tattoo kits cannot compare to the types of printing presses and quality control used to manufacture temporary tattoos such as those made by Tattoo Manufacturing and other major manufacturers in the United States and elsewhere.

Websites that produce color custom temporary tattoos in very small quantities use inkjet printers. The company producing these may not be using safe, dye based ink in the inkjet printer – which is the only way to produce very small quantities of custom temporary tattoos. Carefully check the reverse of any tattoo you purchase, the packaging these arrive in or any correspondence from the retailer for the list of ingredients that have been used to produce the temporary tattoos you are about to apply to your skin and wear for days. It is critical that you ensure the inks used in producing these low quantity custom temporary tattoos are not potentially toxic to your family, others and you.

Micro-Injection Temporary Tattoos

Also avoid micro-injection machines, used by some professional temporary tattoo artists, which may be present at a corporate event or a festival. Micro-injection based temporary tattoos do not hurt when applied but they do puncture the skin. These are generally not used in the United States and are more common in European and other countries. The United Kingdom’s Health and Safety Executive recently advised that improperly cleaned application equipment could result in the spread of infectious diseases including HIV and hepatitis. As a result, several types of micro-injection machines with internal parts that could carry contamination from one individual to another have been banned in that country.

What are Tattoo Manufacturing’s Temporary Tattoo Ingredients?

The decal-type temporary tattoos that Tattoo Manufacturing produces contain the following ingredients:  Acrylates Copolymer, Petrolatum, Mineral Oil (Paraffinum Liquidum), Linseed Oil (Linum Usitatissimum), Soybean Oil (Glycine Soja), Polyethylene Terephthalate, Petroleum Distillates, Cerium Carboxylate, Manganese 2-Ethylhexanoate. They may contain: Black 2 (Cl 77266), Blue 1 (Cl 42090), Yellow 5 (CI19140), Yellow 6 (CI 15985), Red 7 (Cl 15850:1) and Titanium Dioxide (CI 77891).

Polyethylene terephthalate may be present in temporary tattoo adhesive or the glitter used in glitter temporary tattoos. The term “phthalates,” short for “orthophthalates,” refers to a class of additives used in some plastic products, specifically products made with a particular type of plastic—polyvinyl chloride (PVC or vinyl)—to make the material soft and flexible. Vinyl shower curtains, cable, wire, and flooring are examples of flexible PVC products that may contain phthalates. Plastic beverage bottles sold in the United States are made from a type of plastic known as polyethylene terephthalate (PET). Although polyethylene terephthalate (the plastic) and phthalate (the additive) may have similar names, the substances are chemically dissimilar. PET is not considered an orthophthalate, nor does PET require the use of phthalates or other softening additives.

The laminate used to cover and protect Tattoo Manufacturing temporary tattoos contains no phthalates and has been rigorously tested for other harmful elements. Testing documentation is available upon request from Tattoo Manufacturing.

All Tattoo Manufacturing temporary tattoos are manufactured in the United States. Make sure that any temporary tattoos you purchase clearly list their ingredients on the packaging per FDA requirements. Every Tattoo Manufacturing product package and individual temporary tattoo contains this information. The reverse side of every individual tattoo has a link to a website where any concerns about safety can be reported by the consumer with the product number. We have manufactured temporary tattoos since 1989.

So, Does the FDA Approve Any Temporary Tattoos?

No. The FDA does not “approve” any temporary tattoos. The FDA approves the color additives used in making temporary tattoo products. You will often see “FDA Approved” on websites which is a misunderstanding by those who are selling temporary tattoos. Therefore, purchasing these products from a reputable manufacturer that uses FDA approved color additives and has met or exceeded the safety testing requirements that many customers require for retail is prudent. Tattoo Manufacturing exceeds these safety standards; it is vital to our customers and is generally a requirement to export to many of the countries to which we ship our products throughout the year.

You can visit the FDA’s page about temporary tattoos to learn more about their oversight of these products.

What is the Best Option for Temporary Tattoos? Are Temporary Tattoos Safe for Kids? Should Parents Allow Kids to Wear Temporary Tattoos?

Though Tattoo Manufacturing makes only decal (press-on) temporary tattoos we do so because we believe that this is the best temporary tattoo option for children and adults. They offer safety and deliver a high-quality and realistic effect. Tattoo Manufacturing’s temporary tattoos exceed U.S., Canadian & European Union safety standards. No tattoo – temporary or permanent – is completely safe. Knowing what to look for and what to ask is the best way to protect your health and also the quality of the body art you get.

Fashion Temporary Tattoos

April 29, 2010

Temporary tattoos as a fashion accessory are all the rage right now!  And for good reason: they add a mysterious and sometimes sexy element to the look and feel of an ensemble.  That’s exactly why they’re popping up in high fashion. Fashion temporary tattoos are in.

Chanel Temporary Tattoos

As a fashion accessory, temporary tattoos are fun and so easy to use.  They allow for creativity and uniqueness but unlike a hairdo or makeup, application isn’t painstaking.  What can be difficult, however, is finding fashion worthy tattoos.  Chanel carries a package, but it’s expensive (about $75 a pop).  So where can the everyday girl get a high quality, fashion worthy tattoo?

Ladies, meet the Henna Temporary Tattoo.

Fashion temporary tattoos are long, detailed pieces meant to run down the leg or around the wrist.  They should be soft and act as a compliment to an overall look.  That’s why these Henna tattoos  are perfect as an accessory piece.

Tattoo Link of the Week 3: Tattoo Mistakes

February 8, 2010

LA Ink or temporary tattoos?

The TV personalities and tattoo enthusiasts/artist on TLC’s LA Ink know a thing or two about tattoo remorse.  Our link of the week has the crew count down the top five mistakes people make when getting a permanent tattoo.

#3 and #4 from TLC’s list ring especially true as problems that could have been prevented using a temporary tattoo.

– Getting a tattoo of your lover’s name sounds romantic, but you’ll regret the curse you scribed across your body when the ink outlasts the relationship. If you don’t have a history of romantic relationships that last forever (most people don’t), you may want to go with something less permanent. It’s only $89 for 1000 custom temporary tattoos at Tattoo Manufacturing. Those should last about 8 years – about the same as the average first marriage that ends in divorce, according to the U.S. Census Bureau.

– Getting a tattoo on impulse is another common mistake; once again, you can prevent the remorse by trying a temporary tattoo first. That way, you can test run the artwork for a fraction of the cost and with much less commitment. If you decide you really really like it, then you can go ahead and have it permanently attached without that voice in the back of your head pestering you with worry.

Temporary Tattoo Projects: Sports Teams

February 2, 2010

We’ve all seen the tee ball player who is more interested in the dandelions growing in left field than the balls hit in his direction. It is difficult to foster team spirit among younger athletes, but temporary tattoos can help bring a sense of unity to sports teams on any level.

For the youngest of sports teams (the ones not affiliated with any particular school), the easiest solution would be to get a generic sports team or mascot temporary tattoo. From pirates to hornets to bulldogs, Tattoo Sales’ pre-existing designs will likely suit your elementary-aged sports team, whatever its mascot. Not only will these temporary tattoos give the athletes a pre-game activity to enjoy together, the matching designs may just be enough to spark a team identity among the young teammates.

When it comes to sports for school, a custom temporary tattoo is likely a better solution. These tattoos are less likely to be worn by the atheletes and more likely to be worn by the cheerleaders, band members, spirit groups, and fans. A high school or junior high principal could upload the school’s logo and order 1,000 temporary tattoos in minutes. We’re not going to say having the stands full of screaming fans emblazoned with matching tattoos wins football games per se, but you’ve got to admit that it’s a little intimidating.

Temporary tattoos are, in all aspects, well suited for the players and audiences of sports games alike. Less messy than body paint but more unique than a team shirt, temporary tattoos can add an extra element of team pride to any outfit. Use blog15 to save 15% on your next purchase!

Tattoo Link of the Week 2: Fake Fashion with Temporary Tattoos

January 29, 2010

This week’s link comes from the blog of Wrecking Balm, a product used for the fading of permanent tattoos.  As we mentioned in last week’s post, tattoos are a hot accessory for stars and civilians alike.  But with their growing popularity, fewer people are asking themselves the necessary pre-tattoo questions, namely “will I really want this same design on me for the rest of my life?”  Think about it, do you still wear the same makeup, have the same hairstyle, or even dress the same as you did as little as five years ago?  If the answer is a definite “no,” maybe you should consider skipping the permanent stuff and checking out temporary tattoos.

The trend may have started with the needle, but temps are becoming more popular – or “hotter,” as they say in the fashion media world.  Last week we heard about Chanel’s new line of temporary tattoos. Last fall, fashion houses Rodarte and Jean Paul Gautier included body art on their runways.  Henna and body paint are viable options for the runway look, but you don’t get the color and precision that you get with predesigned temporary tattoos, minus the tattoo rue.  I think the author from our link says it quite poignantly:

Fashion is fleeting and so to [sic] fake tattoosPermanent tattoos not so much. Real tattoos are like wearing not-so-hip bell-bottoms when slim skinny cigarette [pants] are in chic.”

Tattoos and body art are supposed to be fun, not full of regret.  And if you’re the artist-type who doesn’t want to put anything unoriginal on their body, no problem; tattoosales.com allows you to customize and create your own temporary tattoos.  With all the temporary options available for you, why risk the  lament of misguided ink? Use blog15 to save 15% on your next purchase! Shipping is always free in the United States (minimum online order is only $10).
