Geeky temporary tatts: TATTONOMY


Harry sez, "Tattoos are the best form of self expression, but let's face it, some of us don't want to get something permanent on our skin that we might regret for the rest of our lives. That's where TATTONOMY comes in. They've created temporary tattoos with geeky designs that you will never regret having. You put them on with water, they stay on for a few days and then you wave goodbye to your geeky design."

Harry's the CPU Wars guy -- a good egg.


At $5 per set of temporary tattoos, including free shipping to the US & UK, they are also a lot cheaper than getting a real tattoo. They launched a few days ago with their first 12 designs catering to all types of geeks and they intend to launch new designs monthly to expand their collection. Their dreams don't stop there. They want to bring crowdsourcing to temporary tattoo designs (where you get to submit and choose which designs are produced) and help charities along the way.

  1. Tattoo + time = regret.

    Everything is always changing. Including you.

  2. That's a conveniently undisprovable argument, because for the millions of people who present themselves as counterexamples, you can just say that not enough time has passed. Like a faith healer saying you didn't have enough faith, or a prophet of the end of the world who knows it's definitely coming soon just not yet

    Anyway, they're temporary tattoos, so unless your threshold for regret is remarkably low, I think you should be okay

  3. 20 years? More. I have evidence.

  4. I don't regret my ink. The trick is to wait until after your 20's, and design something that has meaning to you, not what they have on the wall.
