Pump up your music festival fashion with temporary tattoos

April 23, 2012

Summer is on its way, and we can almost hear the music from summer festivals and concerts. Whether you’re planning an appearance at a country concert or an all-weekend festival stint, you’re going to be thinking about your signature look.

Set yourself apart with playful accessories like temporary tattoos. To jump-start your concert planning, we’ve rounded up our favorite looks.

1. It’s no secret that we’re crazy about Skin Sugar Glitter tattoos. These super-sparkly tats are packed with glitter and stay on your skin for days. We don’t want to play favorites, but this gold sparrow is pretty awesome. You can browse our selection of Skin Sugar Glitter designs to find your fave.

2. Rock a feather tattoo and channel your inner rock star.

3. Go vintage. Try an old-school star or rose design.

4. Are you with the band? Consider handing out temporary tattoos with the band’s logo or song lyrics (or the lead singer’s face…ahem, Mr. Bieber) to pump up the crowd. Find out more about designing your own custom fake tattoos.

Cheers to a fun and music-filled summer!

Ink at #SXSW: temporary tattoo roundup

March 26, 2012

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:

2. Librarians! ALA tattoos:

3. You and Who – “heart on your sleeve” tattoos

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.
