tattoo you.

so, i had this crazy idea that instead of business cards for alt summit, i would make up some sfgirlbybay temporary tattoos. shanna murray did such an amazing job on my logo banner, and anna dorfman took it a step further working the roses from my blog into the design, that we’ve been joking around for a while now that they make a pretty fun tattoo!

so, i went online, and found this company, tattoo sales, uploaded my logo and hoped for the best. i even had them shipped to me in salt lake at the hotel, because this was a very last minute hair-brained scheme on my part! they did a perfect job, they were super affordable, and the tattoos worked perfectly! ez, from creature comforts sent me this photo of her daughter wearing one of the tattoos, and i just had to share (check out creature comfort’s great round-up today of lots of great alt business cards!). if anyone’s interested in having a tattoo made – tattoo sales sent me a discount code with my receipt: Use coupon code ‘TMO’ for 10% off your order! i really can’t recommend them highly enough.

p.s. should anyone want a sfgirlbybay tattoo, send me a email and i’ll send you my address. then, just send me a self-addressed-stamped-envelope, and i’ll mail you out a tattoo!

    What a great idea. Thanks for sharing

    These are GENIUS. Forget stickers, all the cool kids will be clammering for the temp tattoos! And your logo translates into a tattoo so brilliantly. It’s like the prettier girlified version of a sailor tattoo. So, so awesome. You can expect an envelope coming from me in the near-ish future. ;)

    This is so wild as I just was on Tatoo Sales website this weekend after having a similar idea. The thing that I am stuck on is visualising the sizes – I’m a metric girl. What size are your the tatoos you ordered – judging from the picture above it’s a perfect size.

    I love your tattoo, great idea.

    Speaking of tattoos, I just gave out a handful of Lisa C.’s Eames chair tattoos at lunch with some lady architect colleagues of mine, and they were THRILLED. So cute.

  25. Rosemarie says:

    What a wonderful idea! Now, how do I rationalize having custom temp tattoos made…They’re so fun!

  26. CLH says:

    what a brilliant idea for the summit . . . gorgeous design & execution!

  27. Naomi says:

  28. Leanda says:

    Awesome and unique idea Victoria!!

  29. patricia says:

    as usual, you rock Victoria.
    I am thinking that some custom tats would be great to use for my family reunion that is coming up. thx for the inspiration and resource.

  30. Stella says:

    Wow this is such a great idea ! I’m pretty sure you found the perfect way to be remembered (which is what business cards are all about right ?) ! It’s so creative !! I love it (if the exclamation points have not stressed that out already :)

  31. Andrea Howe says:
