I'm often called Funtooguy because I've promoted and marketed waterslide temporary tattoos since 1988. I view my products as an alternative to the lifetime commitment of real tattoos. I constantly do research to find the most realistic and best quality in the industry.

Fun with a new Japanese Paper Tattoo

While relaxing on my deck, I reflected on how much fun I've had with a new paper tattoo from Japan. Tattoos are popular these days, but a lot of people who would like one don't want to make the lifetime commitment of getting a real one. That's where quality waterslide temporary tattoos come into play. I wear temporary tattoos that look like real tattoos, and that's what makes them fun. People at places I frequent get used to seeing different tattoos on me and look forward to seeing my new tats.

This is the second time I've worn this particular dragon tattoo. It's become one of my all time favorites, and I get more than two weeks service each time I wear it. The last time, I applied it to my left arm. This time, it was on the right arm.

Yesterday, I met a friend for lunch at a billiard parlor where they make one of the best hamburgers you could ever hope to wrap your mouth around. When ordering at the counter, the young lady taking my order commented on how nice my "tattoo" was. I gave her a closer look. She already had three real tattoos of her own, and was really impressed with the fine detail in mine. She asked where I got it and I told her it was a waterslide transfer paper tattoo from Japan. Her eyes widened as she took a closer look. She couldn't believe it was a transfer, and called a co-worker over to get her opinion. She was also impressed and wanted to know where she could get temporary tattoos like that. I gave them both my card so they could browse all the images available. As I was leaving the counter to find a table, a gentleman sitting at the counter called me over. He had been observing my conversation with the counter girls and asked for a card so he could visit the site. He said he was one of the people who would like to have a tattoo...but not for life. It seems there are a lot of people who meet that description.

I stopped at an auto parts store on the way home to get some fuel additive. The young man who helped me noticed my tattoo and commented on how good it looked. I told him I'd had it for two weeks, and he took a closer look. Then I told him it was a transfer. After an even closer inspection, he said he couldn't tell it wasn't a real tattoo. He said his kids loved temporary tattoos, but he had never seen one that looked as real as this one. I explained there was a difference in quality and companies targeting kids didn't focus on realism. After all, it doesn't matter that much to kids.

A man who was at the next register had overheard my conversation with the clerk. He spoke up to say he felt most people who got real tattoos wished they hadn't later on. He thought it made a lot of sense to have an alternative that looked real but didn't last the rest of your life.

Yes, it was another fun day and typical of what I experience when I'm wearing one of my favorite Japanese Paper Tattoos.
