How Second Glass Uses Temporary Tattoos to Connect with Young Wine Fans

February 21, 2012

Meet Second Glass. They’re a company on a mission to make wine and wine-tasting more approachable for a younger generation. As co-founder Morgan First puts it, “how has an event that involves wine become so stale and stuffy?”

Second Glass Wine Riot Tattoo Station

Second Glass uses their signature event series, Wine Riot, to arm young people with information about wine in an exciting and fresh way. They keep Wine Riot fun by deploying DJs, photo booths, and temporary tattoos.

Why temporary tattoos? Morgan explains that “when people have tattoos on, the snootiness goes out the window.” Temporary tattoos change the atmosphere at a wine tasting from intimidating and snobby to approachable and relaxed. People aren’t scared to ask even the most basic wine questions, like “what’s a Merlot?” or “what does the year on the wine bottle mean?”

Applying a temporary tattoo at Wine Riot

Second Glass sets up a tattoo station at each Wine Riot event. Attendees clamor for the temporary tattoos, which Second Glass offers in loosely wine-themed and zany designs: a wine-loving mermaid, an octopus holding a wine bottle, and a tiger whose stripes spell “Drink More Wine.” The tattoo designs are by Second Glass designer Holly Gordon.

Morgan has found that using fun, original tattoo designs (instead of just a logo) make them extremely popular. And, the interactive tattoo station gives event organizers a place to talk directly to attendees and give them more information about Second Glass.

We especially love the custom tattoo backs that are on the back of every Second Glass tattoo. Custom backs with the Second Glass logo and website ensure that every tattoo that leaves their event reminds attendees how they can find out more about Second Glass.

Kids Tattoos Make for Fun in the Spring and Summer Sun!

May 5, 2011

Kids Tattoos

Kids were the first market for temporary tattoos. Old fashioned kids tattoos were made popular as premiums in bubble gum around the turn of the century.  Brands that have used temporary tattoos as premiums include the popular fruit flavored gum, Fruit Stripe, and the snack, Cracker Jack. These lick-and-peel temporary tattoos became a well-known piece of Americana. You no longer had to be a sailor to get a tattoo!

Why Do Kids Love Tattoos?

Today, there are very few changes regarding temporary tattoos as far as kids are concerned.  Designs may be more modern, new characters are available and the quality has dramatically improved, but the same concept with kids temporary tattoos still exists.

Kids love temporary tattoos because they can apply them easily, they are waterproof, long lasting, colorful and fun. Another reason for the popularity of temporary tattoos among kids is that they are so portable. Temporary tattoos fit perfectly in jean pockets or jacket pockets. Even very small children can quickly learn how to put on a temporary tattoo as it is difficult not to apply correctly if the child has a little patience (about 30 second or less) with the application process.  And patience is a good value to teach! The smile on a kid’s face after getting one or more temporary tattoos has to be the most satisfying aspects of purchasing them for any parent! Application and the incredible, realistic results are an accomplishment! You absolutely cannot go wrong with temporary tattoos with kids!

Kids Tattoos for Parties and Events

Combined with face painting, nail art, bingo, bake sales and other activities kids tattoos make any event much more exciting. You can order a selection to suit children of all ages ranging from Disney and Marvel tattoos for younger children to designs for teenagers such as fashion and tribal temporary tattoos.

You can also prepare party bags to surprise youngsters with. Fill these treat bags with items kids adore like fake tattoos, stickers, jacks and candies. For the decorations, be sure to use circus colors to set the party mood. Set up streamers and tie colorful balloons to trees and chairs.  Or create an entrance booth where you can distribute tickets to children which they can later exchange for goodies, prizes and activity participation – including kids tattoos. Make sure you select the right music for the event! Snacks need to also go with the party concept. Choose healthy ones! Serve animal crackers, fruit and cut vegetables with dip, peanuts, peanut butter & jelly sandwiches, popcorn in lunch bags and juices.

A lot of people are also making custom temporary tattoos for events like children’s parties. It’s a great alternative to the usual messiness that comes with body paint and glitter found at children’s bashes. Children’s parties are supposed to be fun and offering custom tattoos is an easy and inexpensive way to make the party more memorable and enjoyable.

Here’s an idea for your next event!  At a table close to where the temporary tattoos are being distributed or sold provide several spray bottles of water and some paper towels. This will enable the kids to apply their new tattoos themselves immediately after purchasing them quickly and easily.

Kids Tattoos for Fundraising

Temporary tattoos are perfect to reinforce the educational or awareness message of any event ensuring that the event isn’t all business and no play for kids. They can also be used at any event as a fundraising tool since they are affordable and offer the opportunity to generate significant income for any cause. Kids Temporary Tattoos cost just pennies and can be sold for much more than their cost to raise money for any worthy effort.

Four Reasons Custom Temporary Tattoos are a Smart Idea for Your Business

November 12, 2010

Businesses and non-profit organizations are constantly searching for new, unique and inexpensive ways to promote their products, services or events.    One promotional tool that many groups use is custom temporary tattoos.

We work with over 65,000 fortune 500 companies and countless small businesses and non-profits, providing them with custom temporary tattoos for their promotional campaigns.  Why are so many organizations using temporary tattoos?  Here are four great reasons:

This is why temporary tattoos are the choice for low cost, yet effective, promotional campaigns.  The upfront cost is clear, with no set-up or art fees.

Elect a Write-In Candidate: Hand Out Temporary Tattoos

October 28, 2010

Alaskans Standing Together, the independent expenditure committee funded by Native corporations, is handing out temporary tattoos at the Alaska Federation of Natives convention that say “Lisa Murkowski/Write-in for U.S. Senate.”

fake temporary tattoo candidate

What an excellent idea for promoting a write-in candidate!  Part of the reasoning behind the fake tattoos, after all, seems to be that voters can wear them into the booth in order to check their spelling when they write-in Murkowski’s name.

But there are strict rules about electioneering in or near voting locations, so anyone wearing the tattoos would have to keep them discreet.

Write-in or otherwise, custom temporary tattoos are a great, inexpensive and unique way to promote a candidate.

Custom Temporary Tattoos for the Hospitality Industry

September 16, 2010

Travel bureaus, hotels, motels, resorts, cruise ships, massage therapists, bed and breakfasts, hair salons, spas: these are only a few of the business in the hospitality industry that could benefit from custom temporary tattoos.

promotional custom temporary tattoos

What can these companies use custom fake tattoos for?  Here are just a few examples:

  • Special raffle giveaways
  • Direct mail campaigns
  • Promotional events
  • Souvenirs
  • Grand openings
  • Kids activities

Let’s take grand openings as an example.  A new salon opening in town could have custom temporary tattoos made of their logo.  On the back, for no extra charge, they could print their opening date, address, website and a promotional offer.  The offer could be good for a percentage off or free shampoo with your hair cut.  Example of what the tattoo back:

Guy & Gal Salon Botiuqe

2337 N . Main

SE Corner of Main & 1st

Be among the first!  Book an appointment: 555-236-5555

Wear this tattoo to the salon for 30% off your cut!

The custom temporary tattoos could be handed out to residents near the salon and at city-wide events.  It’s a great way for the salon to attract potential life-long customers for two reasons: temporary tattoos are very trendy right now so handing them out makes your salon seem hip and cutting edge, but it’s also a very unique promotion so your potential customers are likely to remember it – and act on it.

But wait, there is another very significant advantage to using custom temporary tattoos to promote a grand opening!  By having your customers wear the temporary tattoo in order to get the discount, you are turning them into walking billboards for you!  Others will see them wearing the tattoo and inevitably ask questions about it which will drive more traffic to your store.  Even if they won’t ask questions, they will see your logo, promoting your brand.

If you are in the hospitality industry, you can’t afford to miss out on this easy, effective and inexpensive promotion.  Custom temporary tattoos are used by big brands like Hampton Inn, American Male, Massage Envy and Harrah’s.  Promote your business today: visit
