Unique ways to use a Temporary Tattoo

Posted by Shopify API on

Heads up! This is an older article which has been moved over from our old blog. As a result, some of the styling on this page might be a little off.


With February well underway, this month’s Papergang stationery box has started to land through our lovely subscriber’s letterboxes worldwide. February’s box has been designed by Millie Amber and is beautifully centered around the Year of the Tiger.

Included within this Year of the Tiger box is a new product and it’s a bit of a wildcard product choice!! In this stationery box, you’ll find temporary tattoos.

Now we know temporary tattoos aren’t for everyone and you may even think, they’re not stationery! Well, we have done a little bit of egg-celent (you’ll realise why we said this later!) research and found a few ways on how you can use our temporary tattoos in a completely different way.

Get creative with your diary or planner by adding our temporary tattoos to your pages to brighten your day as you plan your weeks. ‘Cause who doesn’t want a tiger all over their stationery?

Make your office space brighter by adding our temporary tattoos to your pen pot so they are always on display. Whether you are at the office or still working from home, it makes the working day that little bit nicer.

See why we use that bloomin’ awful egg pun earlier? It’s 100% true, no fake photoshopping here! You can tart up your boiled eggs with temporary tattoos. With Valentines’s Day fastly approaching, why not get in the spirit of luurve and make your Valentine’s Day breakfast that little bit special. Perfect for the gram right?

Don’t just stop at notebooks, pen pots and eggs, our Papergang temporary tattoos can be applied to so many different items. Here are a few extra ideas that might just send you wild.

  • Waterbottles

  • Glasses

  • Phone cases & laptops

  • Mirrors & windows

  • Balloons

  • Clay pots & vases

TOP TIP: Transfering temporary tattoos onto items can take longer than when applying to skin, so be patient. You will need to hold a damp cloth or sponge on the back of the temporary tattoo for 3-4 minutes.

Well there you have it, you’ve seen our ideas. If you decide to use your temporary tattoos this way or find something even better, don’t forget to tag us in your pictures @thepapergang on Instagram. We must admit, we do get a bit giddy when we see all your beautiful pictures.

Screen tats!
