Glimmer Body Art
Here's the latest innovation in water-based tattoos, of course involving tablets and smartphones.
Glimmer Body Art launched Tattoos Alive at last week's Toy Fair, positioning the tattoos as an innovative twist on the traditional Cracker Jack tattoo.It's targeted for girls and boys, ages 6 through 14, where downloading an app is second nature. The tattoos turn into 3-D creations that sing, dance or crawl after scanning a smart device and associated app over the tattoo. "Static robots, dinosaurs and princesses turn into jumping, running and dancing creations. Spiders will crawl up arms, peace signs will turn into animals that rock out to pop songs and dragons and fairies dance to music," according to the press release. Kids can take a "selfie" photo in different settings to make the memory last forever. The tattoos will be available in specialty stores as of April 15. The tattoos are sold for $1.99 for an envelope of six, and $4.99 for a box of 24. Kids must also purchase a Tattoos Alive kit, download the free app to scan over the tattoo.
