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.

Gadsden Don't Tread On Me Symbol

You can now wear the Gadsden "Don't Tread On Me" rattlesnake as a temporary tattoo. The history of the "Don't Tread On Me" flag dates back to 1754 when it was introduced by American general and statesman Christopher Gadsden. It was first used by United States Navy ships charged with intercepting British ships carrying war supplies to British troops in the colonies. It was also widely displayed during the American Revolutionary War. It has had varied exposure over the past 250 years. It became common again in the wake of 9/11 and was flown by the Customs Service, harbor patrol boats in U.S. ports, and individuals serving abroad in the U.S. military. More recently, it has been popular with the Tea Party movement. Follow this link to read more of the history of the Gadsden "Don't Tread On Me" symbolism. Today the Gadsden symbol is available on flags, banners, T-shirts, hand-made signs, and as a large or small temporary tattoo.
