Restaurants that rock temporary tattoos: Hay Market Willow Glen

April 19, 2012

There are two things that we love at Tattoo Manufacturing: temporary tattoos (you probably could have guessed that one) and food.

So, we feel like we’ve hit the jackpot when we hear about restaurants creating their own tattoos.

Exhibit A: Hay Market, a restaurant serving up seasonal American cuisine and freshly-minted temporary tattoos in the Willow Glen neighborhood of San Jose, CA.

Hay Market, run by chef Joe Cirone, has been a big hit since its opening in the summer of 2011. Nine months later, patrons are coming back for the always-changing menu AND for the quirky temporary tattoos. At the end of every meal at Hay Market, the check comes with a couple of special extras: freshly baked cookies, temporary tattoos & warm, damp towels.

Joe reports that his restaurant guests sometimes apply the tattoos (Hay Market’s cow head logo) right away, and sometimes they take the tattoos home to their kids. “I’ve been all the way across town before and I’ve seen people wearing our tattoos,” he says. Joe likes the way that his tattoos carry his brand out of the restaurant with the people who are wearing them. “People wear the tattoos for the next four or five days, and they’re sharing the brand.”

Tattoo Spotlight: Mustache Madness

March 29, 2012

When our friends at the South Carolina Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy ordered fingerstache tattoos from us recently, we had to get the full scoop on how and why the nonprofit was using our office-favorite ‘stache tattoos.

Fingerstache temporary tattoos for nonprofit fundraiser

The answer? The group is holding a “March Madness”-themed fundraiser known as “Mustache Madness.” Starting in mid-March, the SC Campaign challenged 19 men to grow their best mustache, set a fundraising goal, and petition their friends and family to help them reach their donated dollar total. The catch? None of the competitors may shave their ‘stache until they reach their goal! The contestants include a pastor, a doctor, a musician, a restauranteur, a lawyer, a group of fraternity members, and a pilot.

Mustache March

To support the 19 mustache-growing men, SC Campaign’s friends, employees, and supporters are showing off their own (temporary tattoo) mustaches.

Weekend recap: temporary tattoos at Tucson Festival of Books

March 15, 2012

We had a blast last weekend at one of our favorite hometown events, the Tucson Festival of Books. March weather in Arizona can’t be beat, and we loved the chance to soak up some sun AND meet a steady stream of temporary tattoo fans! Here’s a peek of at the fun we had. To see all of our Tucson Festival of Books pictures, check out the full Flickr album.

Everyone wanted to get inked by our temporary tattoo crew.

Tattoo Spotlight: sfgirlbybay Logo Business Cards

February 6, 2012

We love the idea of using temporary tattoos as creative promotions – for brands, local groups, and small businesses. So, we’re always thrilled to hear about Tattoo Manufacturing customers who have huge success with the tattoos they order.

Recently, blogger and designer Victoria Smith, editor of sfgirlbybay, was looking for better business cards. She already had a killer logo, thanks to her friends and fellow designers Anna Dorfman and Shanna Murray. Victoria ordered paper business cards, but she wasn’t happy with the quality of the paper. She is a fan of Tattly temporary tattoos, and has been following the current temporary tattoo trend. So, she thought, wouldn’t a temporary tattoo business card be fun?

Victoria ordered custom tattoos, using her logo, from, to use at the Alt Design Summit. At the conference, she offered her tattoos to people when she introduced herself, in lieu of the traditional business card exchange. People loved her temporary tattoos! Some people applied the tattoos on the spot. Victoria was even approached by a curious group of people who were attending a different conference next door – and soon they were sporting Victoria’s logo, too.

As a veteran of the printing industry, Victoria says that she was most impressed by the quality of the temporary tattoos. She had the tattoos shipped directly to the hotel where she was staying for the conference, and had no idea what to expect. We’re glad that Victoria was pleasantly surprised!

Promote Your Business with Unique Temporary Tattoo Business Cards

January 30, 2012

At trade shows and meetings, clients walk away with stacks of nearly-identical business cards. Contact information gets copied and stored, and the actual business card ends up in the trash.

In an increasingly digital world, where email address books have replaced the Rolodex, businesses have to get creative to set their cards (and their brand) apart. One way to make sure your business card doesn’t end up at the bottom of the trash can: add something memorable that potential clients will want to show off. We love the idea of using temporary tattoos as unique, fun business cards.

Tattoo Manufacturing custom tattoos are affordable tools for businesses – pricing starts at just $45 for 100 custom temporary tattoos.

Runner auctions arm space to highest bidder

January 9, 2012

Many runners use temporary tattoos to track their race times. Runner’s World featured temporary tattoos that help marathoners see their total race times and mile splits, below:

But now, one runner is putting a different spin on running tattoos.

Nick Symmonds, a US top-ranked 800m Olympic runner, will wear a temporary tattoo during the 2012 Olympics in London. He just doesn’t know what the tattoo will say yet. Nick has opened an auction for his arm space on eBay – and the highest bidder will have their Twitter name broadcast on Nick’s body this summer.
