Temporary tattoos are seen as products in themselves, and nothing makes it more interesting than fun logo tattoos for “walking billboards”(people who will wear your temporary tattoos) multiplying your business’ promotional mileage, or great giveaways to help make your party more exciting.
Remember that your temporary tattoos are extensions of your brand: yourself or the company that you’ve been building. Unique, portable, and for heaps of applications, they are novel items that are easy to bring along wherever you want to create a buzz. Follow these simple tips for perfect temporary tattoos, every time:
- SIZE YOUR TATTOO APPROPRIATELY. Most people will want to wear a nice compact tattoo, but most people will usually only use your tattoos if they are manageable. Very large tattoos might not be desirable to a general demographic. If you are doing these as giveaways to strangers, and not for a certain event or specific purpose, try to keep your tattoos at a maximum 2″, in any dimension, to increase its general utility factor.
- SIZE YOUR DESIGN TO SHOW DETAIL. Inspect your design and keep in mind that your temporary tattoos will not be applied on a completely smooth surface. Skin will have hair, creases, wrinkles, bumps–this should be considered when deciding on your tattoo’s size. Fine text and thin lines might not translate well in this case and important words or detail might be lost.
- GEOMETRIC SHAPES ARE PRONE TO DISTORTION. Circles, squares, and other geometric shapes will always look sharp on printed material, but on a person it becomes a bit more complicated. As the body is 3-dimensional, a tattoo design with sharp geometric shapes could get warped and twisted depending on the chosen area of the body, as well as the movement of the expanse of skin where the tattoo will be applied to.
Once you have your final design and are happy with it, consider printing information on the paper liner for contact details, any fine print, or any important text that might not work with the design. This way your tattoos will be compact and iconic, and you still are able to include literature about your brand, service, or cause.
