  • How to use temporary tattoos in museums to generate curiosity amongst children in arts

    Creative use of temporary tattoos to get kids interested in arts music science and maths Use temporary tattoos at museums to get kids interested in arts

    Tattoos have been known to exist beside us since ages...only that their usage, types and the manifesting process has changed from time to time. Temporary tattoos came to a powerful posture in the 20th century with bubble gums offering them inside their packaging and that too free of cost. Kids endured it with all delight and eventually got crazy for it... I as a millennial is a living witness this! So, Tattoo for fun proposes quite a common way of indulgence for kids. Here let us not forget the fact that the children must definitely be engaged in some of the other learning processes.

    As all of us are aware that learning is not confined to any boundaries. It can come from almost any source. These days’ schools and teaching styles are inclined more towards practical ways of teaching and for this purpose excursion and visits to various educational places are a part of the curriculum. However, there are various educational places which do not have the privilege to be interesting. Places like amusement parks have the fun quotient for children but what can one say about industrial visits like a local dairy factory, museums or the famous garden. So, it is up to the guides and teachers to make these excursions happy and interesting ones. Temporary tattoos can be one beautiful way to engage children with not so interesting educational places. Distribution of temporary tattoos to children will encourage them to show interest in those places and eventually they would end up loving those places.

    Ace temporary tattoo designers Adam and Imke are two people who have positively garnered the idea of converting not so lucrative in educational places into attractive temporary tattoos for children. They even showcased this talent at the Rijks Award 2017, under the name Rijks Tattoos. The competition is based on the idea that you take some of the artworks from the museum and make something different with them. Temporary tattoos were Adam and Imke’s presentation under this competition. They converted the artworks into creatively designed temporary tattoos which were loved by the audience. This was one instance of how a boring museum visit of children could be transformed into an interesting one.

    Not only museums but also places like historical monuments, botanical gardens, and process industries can be made lucrative for children to learn these things using the temporary tattoo concept. Educational institutions must cleverly gear up on this concept to gauge the attention of the even the distractive kiddos out there.

    Gumtoo is highly obliged to designers Adam and Imke who shared their unique temporary design concept with us. We are inclined to being into a collaborative mood with educational institutions to provide more horizons to this concept.

    We love the friendship band temporary tattoos. It is girly, it is stylish and Ori managed to bring about a great deal of cheer and colours in this friendship band design. The first in the series and many more in the pipeline!

    Ori not only designed the tattoos but also got her friends to try the tattoos. We love the pics Ori :)

    Simplicity connects very well with us at Gumtoo. We think Ori's "Back to School" design brings out fun and is a great example of free-hand drawing.

  • Gumtoo Tattoo man

    The idea was to create a mascot for Gumtoo! We were toying with several ideas to uniquely position Gumtoo in the retail shops and during the promotional events. That's when, Gumtoo Tattoo Man came about.. and truly in a very unplanned way!

    We have been wondering what to put as a banner on our website, the eternal question of marketing, what kind of banner can visually capture the attention of today's split-second-attention-span shopper :) So we thought about creating an iconic tattooed human being.

    Thats when Valentina Felce came into the picture. We spotted her in Etsy and she runs BlueRaspberryDesigns shop and makes awesome tattooed toys for boys and girls. We loved her toys! We asked her to design the Gumtoo Tattoo Man.

    Now, the tattoo man design was so eye catching that we were wondering whether to actually make a soft toy mascot with it or put it up as banner on the home page. We were not decided at all. At this point time, we were finalizing the retail display arrangement for the good people at MONOYONO and at the print shop while printing some banners, the idea of Gumtoo tattoo man as pop up display came about. The impromptu decision was taken and within next 30 minutes we were on our way to deliver Gumtoo's mascot to the first retail store. We have also found the lady love for our man!

    Tattoo man got his woman! Tattoo man got his woman!

    Stay tuned to see how we grow Gumtoo Tattoo Man's family!
