Although temporary tattoos have been around for decades, Tattly is elevating your favorite nostalgic accessory to the next level. The Brooklyn-based business was started in 2011 by Tina Roth Eisenberg. Tina — a graphic designer — knew there was more out there for the humble temporary tat.
These aren’t your mom’s temporary tattoos, and in the last six years, Tattly has grown from just 15 designs to include thousands (ranging from dainty to daring) on their website by artists from across the globe. Tina is always looking for innovative ways to test the limits of the temporary tattoo, and Tattly’s most recent design features an accompanying fragrance.
The art for these latest tattoos was created by French artist Vincent Jeannerot. Vincent’s watercolor paintings feature beautiful floral images that are reminiscent of 19th-century botany illustrations, and even smell like real flowers.
They received help from Agilex Fragrance, a fragrance company, to assist with creating the scent to accompany these unique tattoos. “We started working with Agilex fragrance house, and they were so kind to experiment with us,” says Tina. “Their designers were super excited to take a visual design and then try to interpret a scent for it. We launched it, and it was an incredible success. It seems like no one else is doing it.”
Have a nice sunday! Yours, Fran
