Tattly: Today’s Idea Envy

May 10, 2012 / Artist At Work

 “Life is too short to drink bad wine and wear ugly temporary tattoos.”

-Tattly founder Tina Roth Eisenberg

If there was ever a product that filled a need we didn’t know we had, it’s Tattly! Founder Tina (best known for her blogger identity swissmiss) is no stranger to great design, and when her daughter came of the temporary tattoo age, she was disappointed with the “Clip Art gone Tattoo” selection of generic-looking characters. What’s a savvy design mom to do? Create your own company, of course! Thus, Tattly was born, and we thank her for it.

Just when you think you’ve seen the best in the collection, there’s always another new release or cheeky hack that makes us LOL. (Hacks are when you mash up multiple designs for something unexpected and new – shades of Girl Talk!) With designs from over 40 artists, there’s bound to be at least a couple Tattlys that tickle your design fancy!

As you can see from our previous post, many of us here at Wheatpaste aren’t strangers to going under the needle for some real ink, but even so, we love sporting the kitschy patterns created by some of our fave artists – even some that we already know and love! Lisa Congdon is a fine artist and illustrator with some of the cutest Tattly collections to date, and you can find her work on our sister site Oopsy daisy, Fine Art for Kids as well.

Check out the below video for some simply adorbz ideas on how to make Tattly your own. Unique art doesn’t just have to be on walls – slap some on your skin and rock on!
