Sure, you can just stick your logo into a temporary tattoo pack, but by adding due effort to the overall design, you’ll be able to make this promotional item a lot more appealing and effective than before. What’s more, you need to make sure that you only use safe, non-toxic, and easy-to-apply (and remove) materials for your tattoo.
