Temporary tattoos have long been a staple at launches, trade shows, and events, but Tattly is stepping up the fake-ink game with designs created by trendsetting graphic designers and illustrators—no clip-art butterflies, glittery dolphins, or tribal armbands here. Printed with vegetable-based inks, the ready-to-wear collection includes 313 options, such as hand-drawn vintage cameras, friendship bracelets, and black-and-white typography. The Brooklyn-based company has worked with brands such as DreamWorks, NPR, and Twitter on custom projects, which are available as loose, individual tattoos or as sets of six 2- by 2-inch tattoos packaged in full-color printed envelopes. The individual tattoo packages start around $500 each, while the sets start from $5,000. The price includes prepress formatting, printing, and packaging, but not a custom design—however, Tattly staffers do offer gratis feedback on submitted art and will introduce brands to any of the more than 80 designers with whom they regularly collaborate.
