Tattly Designy Temporary Tattoos

· Thursday November 10, 2011

People get tattoos for all sorts of reasons. Lots of them are dumb. A poor choice can sting like a neverending hangover or routinely embarrass like a high school yearbook photo. I think it's best to adopt an approach similar to Marc Jacobs, whose simple explanation for getting SpongeBob permanently etched in his skin was: it makes me happy to look at it, so I want to look at it often.

Tattly make tattoos guaranteed not to cause ongoing grief - they're temporary. Each design comes in a two-pack, so you can wear it out on two separate occasions, or give one to a friend. The idea came about when Tattly's creator swissmiss grew tired of applying “bad clip art” tattoos to her daughter.

Designs are mostly silly, artsy, or kinda cute - from a digital wristwatch whose time display says, 'LATE' to a computer cursor (arrow or hand), to the CMYK color circles and a bastardized Pantone logo. Or for the momentarily mute, the 'yes' hand 'no' hand is a great option.

Tattly = tattoos without the pain; physical or emotional.
