Posted in Fake Tattoos on January 21, 2011 by tattooexpo

One of the hardest challenges that you’ll encounter when making custom temporary tattoos is coming up with a great design. This is especially true if you plan on using the fake tattoos for an event. A lot of event organizers use them as giveaways to help them raise team spirit or funds. If that’s the case, then the pressure just doubled. You probably know the importance of a great design to help you achieve your goals. This is almost as important as teaming up with a reliable temporary tattoo manufacturer.

But actually, it’s very easy to come up with a great design for the fake tattoos. But first, you need to realize that there should be no pressure. Custom temporary tattoos are supposed to be fun. That’s the reason why you want to use them in the first place. You also want to have a design ready when you talk to your chosen temporary tattoo manufacturer. Here are some tips on how you can come up with a great design:

1. Settle down.
This is to help you grasp what you need to accomplish. Even if there should be no pressure, you still need to settle down and do it. You just have to relax so you can open up your mind to ideas.

2. Know what it’s for.
In order to reach your goal, you have to know why you’re doing it. This can help inspire you so you can have design ideas for the fake tattoos.

3. Look around you.
Oftentimes, you don’t have to look far in order to come up with a design for your custom temporary tattoos. Just look around the place. If you’re organizing an event for your school, look around the school. Maybe looking at the school mascot can give you some ideas. If you’re organizing an event for a cause, immerse yourself in that situation by surrounding yourself with the issue that you’re trying to help solve.

4. Ask around.
Even if you’re the designated event organizer, you don’t have to do everything yourself. You can ask for help from others. You can even ask for a brainstorming session so you can come up with a design. Maybe there’s a graphic artist on staff. Better yet, ask the prospective attendees of your event. You can ask what fake tattoos they want to see.

5. Ask an expert.
You can ask a graphic artist to help you come up with a design. There are a lot of freelance graphic artists offering their services offline and online.

6. Talk to your temporary tattoo manufacturer directly.
A lot of people don’t realize that you can go to a manufacturer directly with or without a design. As long as you’re going to contact a reliable manufacturer, you’ll have all the help that you need including design. It doesn’t matter if you have an unfinished design or no design at all. An experienced temporary tattoo manufacturer will have all the tools and expertise necessary to help you come up with a design.

A Guide To Cat Tattoo Designs

Posted in Cat Tattoo Designs on January 20, 2011 by tattooexpo

As I begin to write I notice a large grey cat outside my window marking its territory. Fine, I think, but this is not my cat, as a matter of fact I don’t own a cat. And that’s when I realise who does own a cat? Here is this sleek, majestic, animal that, by now has noticed me and carries on with total disregard or fear of reprisal, free to wander and do what cats do. Cats have a long history with humans and what I liked to do in this story is to tell you about some of that history, and also to give you some ideas if you are thinking of a cat tattoo design.

Cats have been human pets since the time of ancient Egypt. In ancient Egypt the cat was revered and killing a cat was not a good idea as this also resulted in your own death. Cats have been associated with mythology and folklore for a long time. There was Freya, the Norse goddess of love and beauty, who had a chariot pulled by 2 large gray cats (there’s that grey cat again!).
