Cool custom temporary tattoos from Love and Lion that we want for our special events. (Or, heck, just any event.)

We’ve seen plenty of tutorials from crafty bloggers on how to DIY temporary tattoos, but they’ve never turned out quite right. I recently discovered the insanely creative indie temporary tattoo company Love & Lion out of my hometown Nashville (whoo, Nashville!), and now I’m hooked. In addition to the readymade tattoos they sell, they create stylish and witty custom temporary tattoos — so much fun for friend’s bachelorette party, announcing your pregnancy, celebrating your third 39th birthday, or just that moms’ night out that you so desperately need. They even have temporary tattoos for kids, like Big Bro or Sis and custom pirate tattoos (naturally). Related: We...

We want candy! Candy temporary tattoos, that is.

Oh my yum — we were so happy to find this new line of candy temporary tattoos. Colorful, cute, lightly scented, and utterly free of calories and cavities. The Arm Candy pack from our pals at Tattly are sure to be a favorite with your little candy gobblers. Designed by Julia Rothman and scented by Agilex Fragrances, each packet of safe, non-toxic temporary tattoos includes two each of three armbands and a candy ring. They smell like a mixture of vanilla frosting, cotton candy, and of course, just in time for Halloween, candy corn. Related: CHARM IT and Tattly team up, and our girls go...

12 unique tattoo ideas for parents, beyond your kid’s name on your back.

I loved tattoos ever since I got my first one back in college (sorry, mom), but after having kids, I was all about searching for unique tattoo ideas for parents. For me, it was about honoring the journey of becoming a mom, as well as keeping a little part of my kids with me as I know that all too soon they’ll be grown up and not up my arm pit every five seconds. Ha. Turns out, I’m not the only one with unique tattoos that celebrate parenthood. I hit up a bunch of my friends — online and offline — who...

Sesame Street + Tattly = Best stocking stuffer ever. For the kids, too.

I have a longstanding love affair with Sesame Street, so you can imagine my excitement when I discovered that our friends at Tattly recently teamed up with the Sesame Workshop to create a Sesame Street character set of temporary tattoos. Yes, I understand that they’re for kids, and don’t get me wrong, I know a few kids who will be finding these in their stockings this year. But I’m digging them for myself, too, which is why I’m excited they’ve got a Sesame Street Nostalgia set for us old people. I can’t be the only one who secretly wanted a Grover tattoo. Or…...

Free Fourth of July temporary tattoos! Because you may not want those stars and stripes forever.

Before you go to the Fourth of July parade, fire up the grill, or lay out the blanket to watch the fireworks fall from the sky, I like the idea of getting inked up with some beautifully designed DIY Fourth of July tattoos. Just like fireworks, these tattoos are temporary, but sure look pretty while they’re around. Created by crafter, creator, and talented handwriting illustrator Alexis of Persia Lou, her Watercolor Fourth of July Tattoos are so nicely designed, I want to wear them just as much as the children do.   Related: 9 fun, easy, no-bake 4th of July party treats...

The loveliest temporary tattoos now from Tattly.

We love when some of our favorite indie makers, brands, and artists find each other, and that goes for the latest announcement from our friends at Tattly. They’ve just introduced a new collaboration with the wonderful Anna Bond of Rifle Paper, who is often imitated, but never matched. Check out the aptly named lovely set of temporary tattoos at Tattly. I can almost smell those rosebuds. Obviously they’re perfect for an engagement party or wedding with that always and forever tattoo, if you’re the type who can get away with temporary tattoos — or maybe coordinating floral tats all on your bridesmaid’s...

Tattly tattoos do good. And it’s great.

It’s no secret that we’re huge fans of Tattly tattoos, but even more now that they’ve teamed up with charity:water to help raise money for an awesome cause. The Craziest Thing tattoo not only has a message I’d more than happily wear on my arm (or back or leg), but 80% of the proceeds from each purchase go to support the charity: water initiativ to bring clean, safe water to developing nations.   And if you think temporary tattoos are just for kids, no way! Sure, my kids love their designs, but I love wearing them just as much as they do, especially since...

The Valentine’s gift for the baby who stole your heart

It’s coming up on Valentine’s Day, which means it’s the time we start looking for cute Valentine’s gifts for babies that don’t make our teeth hurt from the sweetness. One of my favorite fallback recommendations is the personalized heart tattoo onesie, and this one from Psychobaby is just perfect. Instead of arguing whether it should say mom or dad, it’s personalized with your own child’s name–or nickname. I think it would be pretty cool if his name was Bruiser or something. The shop also features blankets, hats and bibs with the same design in red or pink. All complete with the...

Temporary tattoo jewelry you won’t regret tomorrow. (Also: brilliant Halloween costume shortcut!)

I love fun, fashion-forward jewelry, but I don’t love when the jewelry–or my skin–changes colors after a little wear. Metallic temporary tattoo jewelry is a fun new trend and smart solution that we’re seeing everywhere–the logical, fashionable next step with the popularity of temporary tattoos lately. While there are a lot of brands getting into the game, my fave so far is Lulu DK tattoos, which also happens to be the preferred temporary tattoo jewelry of Vogue editors. Should such a thing matter to you. (Though please don’t go out with friends and say oh, my temporary tattoo? Same one the Vogue editors wear. That just sounds bad.) Metallic...
