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.

More testing of temporary tattoos

This test compares two temporary tattoos with one from my inventory used as a reference. The top photo was taken 24 hours after application. The "DO OR DIE" reference tattoo and the "LOVE KILLS SLOWLY" skull tattoos look good, but the "FOR THE BOYS" vintage pinup tattoo is thin and already beginning to break down. Note that the two tattoos being compared with my reference tattoo are both from the same manufacturer. The same is true of the tattoo shown in my blog post of December 28th. The bottom photo was taken 4 days after application. The lighting was different, but you can see that the "FOR THE BOYS" tattoo has broken down substantially and the letters are no longer legible.

In just 4 days, I can conclude that the "FOR THE BOYS" tattoo is a reject while the "LOVE KILLS SLOWLY" tattoo is holding up well and worthy of consideration to be included in the selection at However, I'm concerned that only 1 of 3 tattoos from this supplier has met my quality standards. That would indicate that the production quality is not consistent. Still, I'll mark the "LOVE KILLS SLOWLY" on my potential addition list while I evaluate more tattoos from this source.
