The Temporary Tattoo (1967) Pt.One


Societe Demain


A recent acquisition, some 'temporary tattoos' created by Societe Demain, Paris in 1967. A pure 60s pop gimmick, emulating the trend for decorative body art which had become popular throughout the Summer of Love as clothing became shorter and more revealing. I haven't got around to using them yet, i've just scanned them as they are on the card,  i'm sure the detail would show up much better on the reverse. A brief history about the origins of the temporary tattoo can be found on the excellent Tattoo Archive website here.
