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.

The end of an era for Funtoos

More than 28 years ago I began selling and applying temporary tattoos anywhere I could find people.  Temporary tattoos were a brand new idea in the 1980's and they caught on quickly.  I saw an opportunity for others to do what I was doing and developed a dealer package for small businesses or individuals interested in operating their own "Temporary Tattoo Parlor".  Then I ran some small classified ads in magazines offering a catalog and samples for $3.  It wasn't much of a catalog, but it pulled some orders.  I decided to produce a basic print catalog with an order form enclosed.  There wasn't a lot of selection in those days, so it was 5-1/2" by 8-!2" with 10 pages.  Now I was operating three growing business.  Retail mail order, wholesale to others operating temporary tattoo parlors, and doing events and festivals in my local market.  Life was good.  

In the late 1990's we began marketing on the Internet.  That gave us an opportunity to present our products in an additional way.  We still received all our orders by phone, fax or mail until 2009 when I put up the first website that accepted credit card payments online. 

The tattoo industry, both real and temporary, has changed a lot in recent years. This year both of my primary suppliers, whom I've dealt with for over 20 years, went out of business.  I've been unable to find new sources that meet my quality standards.  

               It's time to bring Funtoos to an end 
 I will begin liquidating inventory on December 3 and shut the website down at an undetermined time in the near future. Visit to get the current huge savings coupon code.  

There will be no backorders.  If we are short anything on your order, we will issue a refund for those items.

Take advantage of the extraordinary savings on quality temporary tattoos that will never be available again.  When they're gone, they're gone.  They'll come to you packaged for long-term storage.
