The Temporary Tattoo Project

Maker - Robyn Fukumoto

The Temporary Tattoo Project

Maker Story

Wear Your Heart on Your Skin

How did six tattoo artists in the U.S. wind up designing temporary tattoos inspired by six rescued children in Kenya? Robyn Fukumoto and Lauren Sauma made it happen. The two friends wanted to raise money for Flying Kites, a nonprofit organization dedicated to caring for abandoned, abused and orphaned children in Kenya. Flying Kites’ mission is to raise the level of care for children in need, providing not just adequate care, but exemplary care -- including excellent medical services and a first-class education -- to help break the cycle of poverty.

Robyn and Lauren enlisted the creative skills of six tattoo artists and paired each one with a Flying Kites' child in need of sponsorship. The children answered questions about their likes and goals, and the artists used their stories as inspiration for these limited-edition tattoos. Each design is a work of art that you can showcase on your skin. When heads turn and people start asking questions about your new tattoo, it’s the perfect opportunity to spread the word about the Temporary Tattoo Project and Flying Kites.

The Temporary Tattoo Project donates all proceeds to Flying Kites’ child sponsorship program and its center, the Flying Kites Leadership Academy. Are you ready to get inked?
