Here at Temporary Tattoos, we want people to enjoy the little things, and bring joy to others with our temporary tattoos. With each individual tattoo we create, we add a hint of love and laughter. It is important for us to remember to be supportive of one another. With this support comes the realization that we cannot be oblivious to the hardships people go through, and this includes becoming aware of diseases and causes effecting people every day. We believe it is important to spread this awareness, and we do so with our awareness ribbon collection of temporary tattoos. Show your friends and family members that you stand with them in their cause.

One of the most well-known awareness ribbons, the pink ribbon stands for breast cancer awareness. Many different groups and organizations are dedicated to supporting members that have either fought breast cancer or know others who have been victims. The Susan G. Komen organization is widely known for raising money to ensure that all people who have been affected by breast cancer receive the help they need, and seek to find ways to prevent and cure breast cancer. TemporaryTattoos.com is proud to be partnering with this organization in raising awareness at the Dallas Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer walk on October 26th. We are honored to be donating custom temporary tattoos for the participants and an assortment of Halloween temporary tattoos for the children. Find a local race/walk to help raise awareness for breast cancer at the Susan G. Komen site. Through the entire month of October, we will be offering our breast cancer awareness collection of tattoos at 50% off in honor of Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
Every ribbon’s cause is important. Many causes are specific and not as well known. We would like to raise awareness and highlight Mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a tumor of the tissue that lines the lungs, heart, stomach and other organs. Symptoms of Mesothelioma include chest pains, shortness of breath, coughing, wheezing, and pleural effusion. It sometimes may be difficult to diagnose this serious disease as it may seem like these symptoms are not that serious, especially in the early stages. Support awareness for this cancer by wearing our pearl/white ribbon temporary tattoo! Our friends at Mesothelioma.net have made a donation to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation on behalf of TemporaryTattoos.com for helping to raise awareness for this cause. For more information on Mesothelioma, please visit their website: Mesothelioma.net.
