Tattly Created a New Way to Support Creatives
The inspiration for Tattly came from a mom’s frustration. Tina Roth Eisenberg was so totally over the poorly designed temporary tattoos her kid was drawn to, that she came up with a new model: “Fake Tattoos by Real Artists.”
In 2011, Brooklyn-based Tattly launched online with 15 designs by professional designers and artists. “These aren’t the temporary tattoos from when you were a kid,” says Director of Marketing and Partnerships Yng-Ru Chen. “A lot of grownups love Tattly, and our more mature designs are doing really well.”
Today there are more than 775 designs available, from over 130 artists, and Tattly’s products are sold online and in stores in over 40 countries. (They also do custom work for big brands.) While that’s certainly a boon for the company, what makes this even more awesome is that they have paid out over $1 million in royalties to those artists.
We are so excited to show off our custom In/Visible Talks temporary tattoos, created for us by Tattly! In/Visible Talks 2018 attendees will get one, plus some extra Tattly love in their swag bags.
In addition to the traditional “tattoo goes on skin” method, Tattly loves to get creative and think outside of the box. Inspired by their Tattly + Christmas ornaments project, we’ve tatted up some chairs to bring a pop of WOW to the conference! We’re in love, and can’t wait to share what we have in store for the attendees!
