  • Gumtoo custom tattoos - why, how & what

    Gumtoo started its operations in Singapore as a retail focused company in late 2012. It did not take us long to recognise that corporate market is pretty meaningful in the island country, so we started offering custom tattoos as well. In the last 3 years, Gumtoo has slowly and steadily grown into a leading player in Singapore for custom temporary tattoos.

    It starts with a fundamental difference at Gumtoo. We are primarily a design company (because of our B2C retail business), therefore we understand corporate client's design concepts and needs well. When you talk to us, you would get the feeling that your design concept is in safe hands.

    We were one of the first wave of companies that were born when designer temporary tattoos took off as a fashion item in 2012. This has given us the time to absorb every product innovation that has taken place since then. That's why, we also started offering metallic tattoos in Singapore, and we do believe they are absolutely gorgeous as custom tattoos in a corporate party atmosphere!

    By working with over 100 corporates and their variety of packaging needs, we have kind of become packaging experts, as long as they are for custom tattoos! The importance of packaging can not be overemphasised from our experience, we believe, unless it is a tattoo booth where, the tattoos are applied directly on the spot, always go for a packaged tattoo. It elevates the experience!

  • Cricket Temporary Tattoos- Building Up The Sporty Atmosphere In Style

    Hollywood and Bollywood for now can take a back seat; the upcoming Cricket World Cup fever is already catching up – wild and strong. Media shutterbugs are talking a lot about their favourite teams, players and yes, their fascination to get inked; just as their favourite cricketers have in the past. If you are a cricket buff – just getting to the stadium to watch a match live, doesn’t prove your ‘loyalty’. Build up the momentum that leads to the big game – temporary tattoos sporting cricket motifs, legions, players and more should now be on your mind.

    For hardcore cricket fans wanting to be associated with the upcoming World Cup Cricket saga, getting inked temporarily is one of the best ways to show their loyalty. In addition to cheer sticks, glow sticks, foam hands and luxe sporty wear and apparel – the quaint yet bold and very vibrant temporary cricket tattoos are now a rage.

    Fans across the nation and in other parts of the world are making beelines outside tattoo parlours – however, if you wish not to be inked for life; temporary designer tattoos are the way to go.

    Build a community atmosphere

    One of the best ways to build up to the game and create a sporty aura around would be with temporary tattoos. Get as wacky and wild with them; it is all about creativity and innovation – the right certified and trained experts would be best to advise and help on the same.

    Honestly speaking, there wouldn’t be a better way to show your crazy-fan-wildness towards your favourite teams – even at work your boss wouldn’t mind you sporting the body art. A special cricket tattoo is a must, and flaunting them around would burn your rivals – envy and jealous ones especially.

  • Get inked - via temporary tattoos

    I had the opportunity to talk about temporary tattoos and drew a comparison between temporary tattoos and permanent tattoos:

    - While permanent tattoos appeal to those who don't mind getting poked with needles for having a beautiful design on their body, temporary ones are for those who want a tattoo without going through the painful process

    - Hygiene can be a big concern when it comes to a permanent tattoo. But one can truly experiment without the risk of infection with a temporary tattoo.

    - Permanent tattoos are generally for life, whereas temporary ones offer flexibility. One can try on as many designs as one wants to.

    - One can also be more adventurous with temporary tattoos compared to permanent tattoos. Just think of any occasion or range -- cool, funky, wild or childish -- and you can have your tattoo; because they are temporary, so there is no risk of being stuck with an experimental permanent tattoo.

    - It takes a lot of time to get a permanent tattoo, whereas a temporary one can be applied within a minute.

    - Permanent tattoos are much more expensive than temporary ones.
