Inked in Sweets

Hey guys and YAY!!!!!! …… I feel like I need to scream that right now. I guess you’ve noticed a little lack of baking lately. I’m sorry about that. I’ve been away from the blog for a few weeks but everything is fine. (Thanks for your sweet emails asking if I was okay.) I’ve just been moving to a new house and my kitchen has been all packed up for a while. And on top of that, I’ve been without internet for almost two weeks, too. Can you say stir crazy? … Because that would be me. But they finally got it up and going last night. YAYAYAY! So now that I’m starting to get all settled in to my new space, I’m way excited to start baking again … and in a new oven.

In the meantime, how about a fun little giveaway now that I can finally blog again. It’s a pretty cute one.

Tattly Party Set

Have you heard of Tattly?

They’re designy temporary tattoos for adults and kids alike … plus they are totally cute.


They’re like real, but fake.

And you can buy them in sets or singles.

I chose some that are sweet themed of course but there are tons of other cool and whimsical Tattly designs to choose from.

Tattly Party Set

These designs all come in the Party Set illustrated by Julia Rothman.

Tattly Birthday Set

Tattly Birthday Set

And these designs are in the Birthday Set illustrated by Mike Lowery.

You could totally use either set for a birthday though. Fun times.

Want to see some more sweets in single versions?

Popsicle Tattly

How about popsicles? These are fun because you can use all four as one tattoo or cut them into sections and use one at a time. Love these.

Ice Cream Tattly

Ice cream cone tattoos with sprinkles? Yes please.

Lollipop Tattly

What about lollipops?

Birthday Garland Tattly

Or Birthday Garland? Way fun.


Want to win some?

Enter for a chance to win one of two Tattly sets including:
The Party Set, The Birthday Set plus the popsicles, ice cream cones, lollipops, and birthday garland.

  • To enter, just leave your answer to one of the questions below on this post.
  • Which one of the above temporary tattoos is your favorite (if any)? OR Do you have a real tattoo? and what is it? I’m curious.
  • Deadline to enter is Friday, August 16 at 8:00 pm ET. Sorry, Time’s Up! Winners announced below.
  • Two winners will be chosen at random and announced sometime Saturday.

Good Luck!


And we have two winners. Sorry, I didn’t get these posted last night but here they are.

Congratulations Kathy and Wendy M! I hope you have as much fun playing with these as I have.

Giveaway sponsored by me.

LOVE the lollipops -super cute!!! No tattoos for me. My husband has a huge Denver Broncos logo across his leg. I was away and knew immediately he got it when he picked me up at the airport. Didn’t speak to him for the rest of the day.

I have one tattoo which I got in my late forties. My daughter (who had cancer) wanted me to get a matching heart tattoo (on our ankle) with her. (Oh, okay….anything you want honey!) When we got to the tattoo shop and she saw the variety of tattoos, she changed her mind about the matching hearts. She got a vine/flower tattoo below her navel. I ended up getting my own which is two entwined hearts (located below my navel) that each have the first initials of my two children. Have never regretted it!

Haley said...

I would totally rock these. Every time it’s a family members birthday my mom gets funny little gifts for everyone and temp tattoos are always one of them. We put them on and then go out to dinner. Haha. Mine don’t stand out as much though because I have quite a few visible tattoos already.

I love them all but my favorite has to be the cupcake ones! So cute! My 5 1/2 yr old loves temporary tattoos – and she thinks my real ones are temporary lol. I have a bow on my ribs, roses on my hip, and hearts on my left foot.

I keep skimming the Tattly site since I discovered them, and can’t decide. So many fun designs! I think I love the popsicles as I am still holding on to summer, even as it is winding down for me and the kiddos…

I love them all, but think the big, round lollipops are fun! I have a tattoo and its a big yellow sunflower with stem and leaves. I’m kind of digging the white tattoos I’ve been seeing on Pinterest

August 14, 2013 07:15 AM
Katie said...

I like the Happy Birthday garland because you could wear it like a necklace! No real tattoos for me!

Charissa said...

Love the “it’s my party” banner & I have a tattoo. My middle name “joy” in Korean which is where I was born but not of descent. (My dad was serving there during his army days). And yes I made sure I checked the translation before I got it by about 10 different ppl.

August 14, 2013 07:26 AM

My favorite are the popsicles, if I HAD to choose, because quite honestly I love them all…..I do have a real tattoo that I got when I was about 20, its a bow on my lower back…no reason at the time, my husband (boyfiend at the time) picked it out….it had n meaning then but last summer our daughter passed away unexpectedly (she had special needs and a seizure disorder but no long or life threatening seizures, and the 1st long seizure she had took her life during the night, in the morning we were leaving for vacation, went in to get her and she was unresponsive, I dd CPR and the doctors did everything they could to bring her back, but couldn’t, we are still in shock to this day, she just had turned 5 on July 15 2012 and she passed away on July 28th 2012) and I come to find out it means fragility of life, so now Id love to get it recolored/redesigned to incorporate our daughter’s name Kiara Christi Gilchrist <3

Well, since I’m not a fan of permanent tatoos- these are neat idea plus plain and simple cute! My birthday is almost here as well as several nieces so I have my eyes on the birthday party set.

I love the polka dotted popsicle! My best friend collects temporary tattoos, so every time she visits we have a temporary tattoo party.

August 14, 2013 07:37 AM
KLR said...

I love the Ice Cream and Popsicle versions of the tattoos! I personally have yet to get a tattoo, have always wanted one and drawn out a large memorial piece for my Mother.. but of course DH is dead set against it and doesn’t like the looks of ink so at this point he’s still winning. ;)

August 14, 2013 07:37 AM

I love the Popsicle! I have 3: a sand castle on my back; paw prints on the back of my hip; wrought iron heart on my pelvis

I’m so glad you’re back!! The cupcake “tattoo” with the blue wrapper and white icing is my favorite!
I have for real ones and I’m thinking of getting another very soon. One on my upper right arm is music notes for “you are my sunshine” in the shape of a heart with the word sunshine large through it, I have 4 hearts on the outer part

Nikki said...

Oops hit send too early lol
4 hearts on the outer part of my right wrist. Special tattoo with my cousin. Inner part of my left wrist has the word styled in cursive in the shape of a heart with 1 Corinthians 13 along the top. Last but not least, a cross on my back with my mom and 3 brothers initials in it. A family tattoo we all have. ;-)

I don’t have any real tattoos. Always wanted a real one, but too chicken to get one. Anything temporary and cute works for me. Love the cupcakes and presents. My kids would love any of them– any excuse to colour up their skin!

I have a purple butterfly on my hip. It doesn’t really mean anything. I got it b/c I was sick of my friend always TALKING about getting a tattoo and never doing it. She said she’d get one if I got one. Done.

And thanks for the tip on these tattoos! Even if I’m not the winner, I’m pretty sure my niece and nephew are going to find a few of these in their Christmas Stockings this year!

August 14, 2013 08:19 AM
Andrea said...

Well they’re all pretty cute. I think the “You Rule” is my favorite. No real tattoos for me – too hard to commit long term. When my kids were little I tattooed the “Mr. Bubbles” temporary tattoo on my foot. One of our employees actually thought it was real. We got a good chuckle out of that.

August 14, 2013 08:22 AM
Vicky said...

Ack! I love these so much! I can’t decide though if I like the ice cream or popsicles more. :)
I have a dolphin tattoo on my back that my 3 year likes to talk to like it’s a pet (that’s not weird, right?). My favorite so far is when he told me to get off the couch because I was squishing my dolphin and he was crying (again, not weird, right?).

August 14, 2013 08:25 AM
