Tattly : Tattoos For Those With Design & Commitment Issues

Tina Roth Eisenberg is Swissmiss.  We find her blog interesting enough to link to on mixingreality, and write about some of her design ideas.  She founded and runs Creative Mornings, a monthly breakfast lecture series for creative types. The events are free of charge, and include a 20 minute talk, plus coffee.  Join in New York, Zurich, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and soon Chicago and London.  Besides that, Eisenberg runs a design studio, and is a serial entrepreneur.  On Tuesday, she launched her latest brainwave : Tattly.

We love the idea of temporary tattoos.  After all, what, one image can encompass a lifetime commitment?  But alas, until now, we have been relegated to Disney characters and bad on the eyes tats for tots.  Swissmiss’s thoughts exactly.

So Eisenberg:…looked through my rolodex and reached out to fellow designers I admire to see what they thought of the idea. The response was overwhelmingly positive. Within days I received my first tattoo submissions. And now, a good two months later, we have a site, a team and an impressive fulfillment-centerlike-set-up in our studio. Team Tattly is ready to ship and rock the world of temporary tattoos.

And why wouldn’t she be?  She’s got a great list of contributors so far.

Jessi Arrington: Color Burst
Jessica Hische: Type Nerd

Julia Rothman: You’re LateRobotPolaroid Instant Camera

James Victore: ScribbleI <3 NYC
Jason Santa Maria: Aperture

For the first two weeks, the site if offering the entire set of 15 designs for a special rate of $35. So get you some tattly, and don’t worry, these designs are temporary.
