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.

54 year old tattoo

I had a birthday this month and a friend sent me this card. It reminded me that the great tattoos we get don't always look the same a few years later.

When I turned 16, I wanted to get my name tattooed on my right forearm like my father and uncle did when they turned 16. The local tattoo artist even threw in a scroll below my name as a bonus. I was really proud of that tattoo 54 years ago, but as the years passed people who saw it asked what it was. You could no longer tell it was a name...let alone read it.
That special tattoo you get when you're young is not going to look the same as you age, and that's worth considerable thought before you make that lifelong decision to get inked. has an excellent article titled "To Ink or Not to Ink: 10 Questions to Consider". If you're thinking about getting a tattoo, it's worth reading. An alternative to having a tattoo for your entire life is to consider quality waterslide temporary tattoos. I have customers who wear the same favorite temporary tattoo over and over. They claim friends don't know it's not real. They wear it until it begins to fade, remove it, and put on a fresh one. Other people try temporary tattoos before getting a real tattoo. In many cases, they decide not to get a real tattoo after wearing a temporary tattoo for a few days.
