I Am A Voter

I moved to the USA in 1999 and two months ago I became a citizen. I can finally say: I AM A VOTER.

Today we launched our Tattly x @iamavoter partnership to help increase voter registration and voter turnout in this election. See you at the polls!

Tattly’s Yearly Birthday Sale

A few minutes ago, we launched our yearly, crazy big birthday sale over at Tattly. I am feeling quite emotional about it as I honestly wasn’t sure earlier this year if we would make it to 9. We persisted and now I am hoping we will make it to 10. I love this little mighty company so much. I bootstrapped Tattly with my amazing team and have paid out of 1.4 million in artist royalties to our artists. I am proud of that! Thank you to all of you who have supported us over the years, who have helped spread good art and joy. I appreciate you! And if you feel so inclined, go stock up on some wearable fun. It’s easy to ship to friends!

ps: If this pandemic has taught me one thing: SHOP SMALL! Your direct orders makes a huge difference (hello there, bigger margins!). Found something on Amazon you want? Make an effort, look up the brand’s website and order directly. If we don’t, only Amazon and highly funded startups will be left.

Tattly Are Waterproof

Summer is here in NY and that’s a good time to remind everyone that Tattly are indeed waterproof. Go sleeve up, dive in, have some fun!

Wear Your Kale

Gah! I have been waiting for *weeks* to share this new Tattly: Kale Tattly by Lara Gastinger. I am pretty sure the entire state of California is freaking out right now.

Moon Phases Tattly

I am loving the new Moon Phases Tattly by Amanda C Marino.

This design reminds me of my childhood in the Swiss Alps where many of our neighbors and friends lived according to the moon cycles. Did you know your laundry gets whiter if you wash it on certain days, your windows don’t get streaks when you clean them, your hair grows fuller, you’ll heal faster after a surgery, your vegetables grow bigger if you pay attention on in which phase of the moon you take care of these things?

Don’t believe me? Read up on it! There are calendars and books that help you understand when to do what based on the phase of the moon. It’s absolutely fascinating!

In case you’re not familiar with Tattly: It’s a high-end temporary tattoo company I started 8 years ago. The designs last 2-5 days and are printed with vegetable based ink, here in the USA. We license art from professional artists and they get a generous cut of every single sale.

Happy Pride!

I am so grateful my kids are growing up in a world, here in Brooklyn, where they will be free to love whoever they want to love, without judgement. The Swiss country side, where I grew up, was not that open minded at the time.

Happy pride day everyone! Look out for team Tattly putting rainbows on anyone who will let them during the World Pride Parade!

Love is love!

Botanical Tattly


Loving this new Tattly design by German based tattoo artist Lara Maju. This is the closest I’ll ever get to a tattoo by a real legit tattoo artist. (Too chicken to get a real one!)

Ladybugs

The brand new Ladybug Tattly by Lorien Stern is my new favorite.

European Starlings by Nic Miller

I am in love with our latest Tattly launch, the European Starlings by Nic Miller.

European starlings flock in a strange and beautiful formation called a murmuration. This was artist Nic Annette Miller‘s fascination behind her 2016 “All That I Can Do” installation project, featuring 700 handcrafted woodblock starlings in flight.

I am lucky to call a set of these wooden starlings my own, decorating my living room wall. They make me happy.

Hummingbird Tattly

This new Hummingbird Tattly by Chris Buzelli makes me happy.

Birds of Paradise Tattly

I probably shouldn’t have a favorite Tattly but I simply can’t help being completely totally in love with this bird of paradise. If you are not familiar with the courtship dance these birds put on, then watch this clip. It will make you smile. I promise.
