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...

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…...

CHARM IT and Tattly team up, and our girls go wild

If you aren’t familiar with CHARM IT, the wildly popular charm bracelet brand for girls, then you haven’t ever browsed at the black hole of impulse purchase crack by the register at your favorite kids’ boutique. Well now there’s a fun, albeit temporary way to get your kids in on the action with Tattly’s CHARM IT Temporary Tattoo Party Set. My own girls first discovered it when they were lured over to the booth at the NY NOW gift fair last month for a sample. Instant hit. Are you surprised? Related: Metallic temporary tattoo jewelry, new from Tattly The premise is the...

A temporary tattoo that keeps kids safe. Not just cool.

I always thought it was a clever idea to write your number on your young child’s arm with a Sharpie, should you be hitting a beach or a theme park where there’s even the slightest chance of getting lost. But I also know plenty of squirmy kids who do not want to have anything to do with that, especially as they get a little older. One trick: Make your kids memorize your phone number. (We started with my kids around three and remarkably, they nailed it.) Another really fun trick: The Emergency Contact Number Temporary Tattoo Watch. Fun, right? A box of 16...

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...

19 very (very) special non-candy Easter basket gifts kids will love.

Between school parties and Easter baskets from their grandparents, my kids will be coming home with chocolate bunnies and cream-filled eggs to last us till the Fourth of July. So I’ve been looking for some extra special Easter basket gifts for kids that go beyond what you might find on your drugstore shelves. They’re perfect for those of you who want to ease up on the sugar; or for kids like ours, who are already going to have more than their fill from other sources. Mix them in with some traditional Easter fare (it is hard to resist jellybeans after all), or limit...

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...

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...
