Gumtoo is a pioneer in the field of temporary tattoos for events. Our company was honoured with an opportunity to create temporary tattoos for the celebration. The tattoo booth targeted both adults and children. The designs were selective. Adults had the option to choose from three henna designs whereas children had two options to choose from. The kids, as well as adults, were quite engaged with the proceedings of the tattoo booth activities. The henna tattoo designs customised for adults were fine art. It had an ethnic and classy look and people did flaunt them with subtle confidence. They wore the temporary tattoo on arms , backside of palm and neck etc. The designs exhibited for kids were simple, one was a depiction of the national flag and another one with Play Lah written on it.
