NDP 2018 is right around the corner, August 9th, 2018 to be specific and the preparations for the red and white day are in full swing. There will be a lot of new traditions introduced this year. It’s going to be one of the largest NDP parade ever held with 14,000 participants and volunteers. The theme of the Parade along with the new logo and song was unveiled at the Marina Bay Floating Platform on 22nd May, 2018. At an event the NDP 2018 executive committee chairman rightly said “We Are Singapore’ represents the collective voice of Singaporeans …a pledge of unity and togetherness among Singapore’s diverse cultures and origins.”
The new theme song is a revamped version of the good old classic from 1987 “We Are Singapore”. The local singer/songwriter Charlie Lim was responsible for this amazing revamped version. It has been very carefully thought out. The idea of taking an old classic was to please the older generation and the new verses of lyrics were written keeping in mind the new and younger generation. A perfect song for the parade that strikes a balance between the young and the old.
The parade will also feature the first ever combined aerial jump performed by the Naval Combat Drivers and Red Lion parachutists landing into the waters of the Marina Bay. The Combined Schools Choir will be returning after a five year break. The parade is also going to witness the largest military tattoo display ever in the history of NDP with more students playing an active role in the event. So as you can see, there are a lot of firsts in this year’s NDP Parade and NDP Tattoos.
Even with all the new traditions setting in, some old traditions will never die like the Presidential Gun Salute, State Flag Fly-past and getting temporary NDP tattoos in goodie bags on THE day. Contributing to this auspicious occasion Gumtoo has actively been a part of NDP by doing what we do best – making creative temporary tattoo designs for the NDP since 2015. We thought it was time the traditional tattoos got a modern twist and to our surprise these new designs were a big hit with the people. Our stylish, trendy and appealing tattoos have been a favorite for four years now and we plan to keep going by innovating and creating new designs. So, we are super excited to be introducing out collection for the 2018 parade very soon. You are going to want to get your hands on these or should I say these on your hands and be the one to stand out in the crowd. NDP Tattoos are a fun way of being involved in the celebration and express your love for the country. The NDP Tattoo collection for 2017 NDP themed One Nation Together was loved by everyone.

Gumtoo has had many associations with major corporates. One of our most successful NDP Tattoo events was the introduction of Terminal 4 at Singapore’s Changai Airport where customized National Day Tattoo Stickers were given to the guests at the open day of T4. Gumtoo has had the opportunity of working with corporate clients like Tampines HUB, Safra, PA Association, Singapore Expo and many more that have used NDP tattoo stickers in innovative ways to engage with employees and customers.
