Our Story

So where did it all start? Well, TattooedNow! had its origins in 2011 on the film set of a Shakespeare play. This was Coriolanus, the first movie directed by Oscar-winning actor Ralph Fiennes.

Among the crew was Daniel Parker, already hugely respected in the industry for his make-up work on films and TV shows including The Hurt Locker, Band Of Brothers and The Last Samurai. Fiennes’s version of Coriolanus needed tattoos. Hundreds of them. Far too many for one person to cope with.

Shooting was taking place in Serbia and Daniel found a couple of local graphic designers, Igor and Nikola, and taught them how he wanted his artwork created. The results looked great – and 18 months later Igor got in touch with Daniel and suggested setting up a temporary tattoo company.

Ever since then the trio have been working together as a team of three co-founders. They have offices in both Serbia and the UK – and they also have a growing reputation as the go-to guys for movie makers and TV producers who need tattoos that look exactly like the real thing.

Change is Good

FOREVER can be a scary word.... it seems so final, right? So, rather than getting a real FOREVER tattoo, try our great collection of TattoedNow temporary tattoos that look exactly like the real deal, but can be removed at any time and last up to seven days.

Great for those who like to have fun, experiment and embrace change. Also, great for commitment-phobes who can't make their mind up (and why should you?).

Simply the Best

We are the only realistic temporary tattoo brand on the market! Other brands merely offer tattoo stickers, which may leave you disappointed. On the other hand our temporary tattoos are so realistic, they have been known to fool friends and cause upset among parents, which is exactly the reaction we are aiming for.

Our tattoos have been hand-drawn, slightly out of focus, designed by skilled tattoo artists and designers so that once applied, it looks like the ink is under the skin, just like a real tattoo.
