New Tattyoo - Art that will stick to you!

It surprises me to find I am blogging about tattoos, but Swiss brand Tattyoo is not at all out of place on Kitty as a Picture. Tattyoo, temporary tattoos for kids and adults, has launched this month with fourteen designs that comprise the first collection. Tattyoo is working with renowned artists from around the globe, and giving them artistic freedom. From their press release:

Proudly displaying an anchor as its emblem, Tattyoo sails the unchartered water of creativity to discover new territories for contemporary illustration. The idea is to give a range of multi-faceted artists carte blanche so that their pent up fantasies may surface.

I believe that in itself makes the brand a fascinating one to watch. I've selected a few of my favourite Tattyoos from the kids range:

Tattyoo: Party Bunny by Kate Larsen 

Tattyoo: Anchor Aweigh! by Anna Kövecses
Tattyoo: Sailorbear by Ingela P. Arrhenius

Other artists who contributed to the first collection are:
Beavory (Israel), Emily Dumas (USA), Jamie Cullen (UK), Janine Rewell (Finland), Leatherette alias Elena Montesinos (Switzerland), Marie Assénat (France), Notanotherbill (UK), and Zara Gonzalez Hoang (USA). 
I'm very curious to see how Tattyoo evolves, but I think they are off to a good start. As well as new designs that are currently in development, limited editions - signed and numbered - are planned for the future. Tattyoo is also offering custom tailored temporary tattoos that provide an alternative to traditional marketing or for unique gift ideas. Be sure to visit the Tattyoo website to see all fourteen designs and to learn more about the contributing artists.

Many thanks to Tattyoo for allowing Kitty as a Picture Illustration and Surface Design Blog permission to publish these images.


  1. How cute! I think my kids will love this. I preferred temporary tattoos for myself too but just in case I'll get inked and it'll go bad, there are specialist that can remove them.

    1. My daughter loved hers - the Sailorbear. It lasted for ages too; really nice quality.
