5 Reasons Temporary Tattoos Should Be a Part of Your Next Fundraiser

February 16, 2012

We hear from a lot of happy Tattoo Manufacturing customers who use temporary tattoos as fundraisers. So, today we’re sharing our top 5 reasons that temporary tattoos are great money-makers.

1. Fans love to cheer on sports teams with temporary tattoos.

At sporting events, fans are always looking for ways to show their team spirit. Whether you’re promoting a high school football team, a local soccer league, or a neighborhood swim team, temporary tattoos are a unique way to boost team spirit and raise money for the team.

2. Temporary tattoos are a safe, healthy, family-friendly tool for nonprofit groups.

Messages about living a healthy lifestyle can be confusing when groups sell junk food and candy for their annual fundraisers. Avoid sending mixed messages by nixing the food sales and swapping in a food-free, safe treat like temporary tattoos.

Temporary tattoos are a strong fundraiser for nonprofit groups from religious organizations to Scout troops. Kids and adults alike love wearing temporary tattoos as a fun accessory.

3. Temporary tattoos are a great way to create buzz at local events.

At festivals, fairs, and sports tournaments, tattoos aren’t just an item to sell – they’re a fun experience. Create a unique activity at your next event by setting up a temporary tattoo “parlor” and charging a nominal fee for each tattoo application. All you need are tattoos and a wet sponge (or paper towels) to apply the tattoos.

4. You can create a custom design that promotes your specific group, event, or message.

Create temporary tattoos using your group’s logo, name, or event date.

Even better, create several different temporary tattoo designs and encourage your fans and friends to collect all of them. Or, hold a contest for tattoo designs and choose the best submission for your tattoos.

5. Do the math! Temporary tattoos are an extremely affordable way to raise money fast.

While other promotional items require a fairly hefty starting budget, temporary tattoos are affordable for every group.

Here’s an example:

At, a soccer team can buy 300 2 x 2″ custom temporary tattoos for $82.08 total, or just $0.27 per tattoo.

If the team sells those 300 tattoos for $2 each, the team would make more than $500 in profit. Wow!

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.

Disney Cars Temporary Tattoos

Kids Love Cars Temporary Tattoos! 50 Per Bag!

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.

Temporary Tattoos for Greek Life

September 9, 2010

College means a variety of things to different people, but for roughly 10% of the collegiate population, college is synonymous with Greek.  Sororities and fraternities play a major role on most college campuses and they are societies in which lifelong friendships are established.

greek life temporary tattoos

Sororities and fraternities set themselves apart from each other in a multitude of ways.  Greek letters symbolize chapters and members put those letters on everything from the flag to the chapter house to shirts, backpacks and coffee mugs.

Another way to display pride in your Greek letters-and something a select few sororities and fraternities are actually using-is with custom temporary tattoos.

On Campus

Custom temporary tattoos can be made and given out to chapter members to wear on campus, just as they wear shirts and carry branded bags.  With the launch of the Chanel and Betsey Johnson fashion tattoo lines, temporary tattoos are very trendy.  Sporting the Greek letters as a temporary tattoo is an excellent and unique way to set your chapter apart and spark conversation.

Promoting Events

Written invitations are so 1998 and emails are pretty routine.  When promoting events, use fake custom temporary tattoos instead!  Parties with themes or traditional logos can be displayed on the front and on the back (for no extra charge) you can print the information, such as date and time.  Handing them out in place of traditional invitations is unique and will ensure invitees remember your event.

Your organization can also use custom temporary tattoos to promote fundraising events.  For example, if a fraternity wants to do leaf removal to raise funds they could print temporary tattoos with their Greek letters on the front and contact info on the back.  Example of the fake tattoo back:

Alumni Relations

The most successful fraternities and sororities are constantly seeking out new ways to keep their alumni connected.  Slipping a temporary tattoo in with alumni correspondence is an excellent to show pride in your chapter and give your alums something unique to display in their offices or at home.

Ordering a Custom Temporary Tattoo

June 29, 2010

Promote your business, entice school spirit, raise money, drive support for a cause; there are many great reasons to get a custom temporary tattoo.  Check out this post we did outlining the top 10 reasons to get a custom temporary tattoo.  While the choice to get a custom temporary tattoo is an easy one, how to order one and what to consider when doing so can be difficult.

Custom temporary tattoos

Taking the guess work out of ordering custom temporary tattoos

Fortunately, we’ve nailed down the 5 elements you need to consider when ordering a custom temporary tattoo.  Each element is simple and once you decide upon each you’ll be well on your way to custom temporary tattoo success!

5 Elements to Consider When Ordering a Custom Temporary Tattoo:

1. The front design

Since the objective behind designing a custom tattoo is to make an impression, you’ll want to use your logo or well known symbol.  Using a business logo works well for brand building and a well-known symbol is more likely to draw attention and spark interest.

Simple enough; but there are a couple variations you can take advantage of to make your custom tattoos even more successful:

Custom temporary tattoos

Incorporating the URL with the front logo

  • If you operate a website, incorporate that site’s URL on the front of the tattoo with your logo.
  • For promoting a cause, start with a well-known symbol (like the pink ribbon or recycling symbol) and add the name of an individual or a meaningful date.

By incorporating your website and taking advantage of a well-known symbol or business logo, you can ensure that you are making the most of every impression your custom temporary tattoos will receive.

2.  The back

A little known fact is that the back of the tattoo is just as customizable as the front.  Take full advantage of this by including the company address, website and social media information.  The majority of promotional, custom temporary tattoos are kept as opposed to worn.  People will take them home and throw them on the counter or on a desk or keep them at the office.  This turns your custom temporary tattoo into a business card of sorts—but one that stands out.

Information to include on the back of your tattoo:

  • Name of your business or organization
  • Website URL
  • Facebook & Twitter information
  • A coupon code or special offer

3.  Size

The most popular custom temporary tattoo size is 2”x2”.  It’s small enough that it can be applied and worn easily but large enough to accommodate contact information on the back.  Plus, this is just the right size to fit into a wallet or pocket of a purse for easy transport to the home or office.

4.  White Effect

When printing a temporary tattoo, there are 3 options regarding white ink: no white, spot white and flood white.

Custom temporary tattoos

  • No White: any areas of the design without color will print without ink, so that the skin shows through those areas
  • Spot White: any areas of the design without color will print with white ink, so that that white ink-instead of the skin-shows through those areas
  • Flood White: white ink will be printed underneath the entire tattoo, making the colors look more brilliant once transferred to the skin because the layer of white makes the image more opaque

Choosing the white effect for your custom tattoo depends upon your purpose.  Do you want the tattoo to be applied to the skin or kept as a promotional product?  For the latter, you’ll want to go with either spot white or no white because that will look better on the tattoo paper.  If it’s more important that the tattoo look good once applied, then you want to choose flood white because, even though the tattoo will appear ‘milky’ on the paper, it will look great on the skin.

Generally, for the purposes of promotional tattoos, no white or spot white is chosen.

5.  Quantity

Lastly, you need to determine what quantity you will order.  Ordering quality tattoos printed on a press using silk screening technology means a minimum order quantity of 1,000 pieces because of how the machines are set up to run.  As with anything else, the more you order, the less expensive each tattoo will be.  Most companies offer quantity discounts at 5,000, 10,000, etc.   Typically, 1,000 custom temporary tattoos will cost around $100.

custom temporary tattoos

So there you have it!  The 5 elements to consider when ordering a custom temporary tattoo: design of the front and back, size, white effect and quantity.  Custom temporary tattoos are one of the most inexpensive and unique promotional products, and outlining these elements also makes it very easy to order.  Get yours today by calling or clicking here!
