View Full Version : Great Idea...Temp Tattoos for the kids (lost/found)...

05-19-2008, 03:09 PM
So, I just ordered a pack of custom temporary tattoos to stick on the kids on our days in the park...they say "If Lost, please call *my cell #*" Thinking this is a great idea -- going to stick them on the kids for the days in the park, plus field trips, etc.

I ordered from www.safetytat.com -- but thinking you could prob make your own w/ the special temporary tattoo printer paper that some stores sell. (note, I'm not at all connected with this site, saw an ad in a "Parents" magazine at the dentist office...this is my first order, was happy to see they accept paypal)

I think you can't pay with PayPal if you are Canadian. I have run into this quite a few times with sites that use PayPal (Passporter, eBags, etc.). Sometimes if you phone, they will process through PayPal for you....... At least Passporter did for me.

I LOVE this idea! We bought some recently and used them for the first time a couple of weeks ago at Disneyland. The only problem is that my 2 year old scratched his off before we left the house. I put it on his forearm thinking that was the most noticeable place for anyone to find it, but after he scratched it off I tried to think of another place that would be seen easily. Unfortunately I couldn't think of anywhere else except his forehead, but that wouldn't make for the cutest pictures, lol. :rolleyes1 So, I brought another one to the park and put it on there so he was too distracted to remember to want to scratch it off.

I heard about these here a few months ago. I bought some right away since we were planning a DL trip.

We discovered (through trial and error) that you shoud follow the application instructions to the letter for best results. We used the hotel room hair dryer to speed up the drying process after putting it on so it wouldn't get messed up (one little touch while wet and it would tear). Once it was successfully put on, it was legible for days! But it stayed on very well, even in the pool.

Have fun!
