    It has been 25 years since the first Orange County Gay Pride Festival and myTaT is incredibly honored to attend this year’s OC LGBT Pride event on Saturday, Aug. 9

    UPDATE: We will be at booth 331 on 4th Street.

    As you know, myTaT supports the fight for equality and we are committed to standing up to injustice towards the LGBT community.

    We’ll be rocking temporary tattoos from our pride collection and we’re super excited to showcase our latest designs:

    We’ll be offering a “Build Your Own Set” for $10 at the event and we'll be at booth 331 on 4th Street.

    If you want to plan your outfit now though, head over to our PRIDE collection and order up your favorites to show off on the big day in downtown Santa Ana.

    Showing your pride and ally status isn’t just limited to the festival. Every morning we all wake up and should proud of who we are and embrace our potential, that’s why this year’s event theme is “Pride is YOU.” Your personal orientation does not matter - it’s about supporting equal rights for all and being proud of that EVERY. SINGLE. DAY. Who knows, maybe you can be someone’s inspiration!

    Learn more about the event at PrideOC.com. See you all there!

    yoga wanderlust temporary tattoo

    Are you ready for Wanderlust? myTaT is and we’re celebrating with a brand new tattoo!

    While we already know we’ll be rocking our new tattoos from July 17 to 20 at Wanderlust Squaw Valley (we're at Booth 112 at the Kula Market in The Greatest Place), we also put together our list of essential items we’ll be wearing this weekend. If you can't make it out for Wanderlust, we love these pieces for any yoga retreat or fun weekend wear.

    We love this Gaiam Sol Power-Grip Yoga Mat, which is great for uneven (read: outdoor) surfaces. While practicing outside may provide many distractions, slipping off your mat should not be one of them.  When you’re out in nature, it is helpful to bring a thicker yoga mat to avoid putting too much pressure on your joints, such as your hips, knees and elbows.

    After centering yourself in the beautiful outdoors, you don’t want to feel encumbered by your beautiful, yet awkward to carry yoga mat. While a simple Easy Cinch Yoga Sling is sure to do the trick, we prefer a mat bag that comes with a few more pockets so you don’t need to carry an additional bag, like Gaiam’s Embroidered Yoga Mat Bag.

    You have your gear, but now what are you wearing? Save your black yoga outfit for the indoors, stick to light and bright colors while you’re outside to avoid getting overheated. 

    Our faves include lululemon’s Energy bra top, Anthropologie’s bright capri leggings and Lorna Jane’s Gwen Excel Tank. You definitely don’t want perspiration to spoil your balance so be sure to grab a few no-ouch hair ties from Pura Vida first!

    yoga accessories

    Also, be sure to drink PLENTY of water - we don't want you getting dehydrated out there!

    Remember, we will be hanging out in Squaw Valley for Wanderlust, armed with all of our tattoo sets, as well as doing a “Build Your Own Set” of five tattoos for $10. myTaT will be located in the market next to The Greatest Place (Booth 112), which will be the epicenter for everything exciting happening at Wanderlust. (Plus we're next to The Greatest stage and the drinks!)

    We’ll be keeping you updated with the latest news from the festival and we hope to meet many of you there!

    myTaT at Wanderlust Squaw Valley

    myTaT is hitting the road this summer and we are super excited to head up to Wanderlust Squaw Valley. In fact, we’re so excited we are even launching a Wanderlust tattoo to celebrate - stay tuned for the design next week!

    Wanderlust Festivals are about bringing together people from all around the world who are looking to be inspired or who hope to share their own creativity and journey towards transcendence with this amazing community. While aspiring yogis can practice under seasoned gurus, others can experience all nature has to offer in beautiful Northern California; one and all are invited to seek inspiration from speakers, artists, chefs, brand ambassadors and those who do a little bit of everything in this remarkable setting. Wanderlust actually says it best: it’s “an opportunity to unplug from the ordinary and discover the extraordinary.”

    Wanderlust Squaw Valley

    While we will be hanging out in Squaw Valley in search of our own muses, myTaT will also be on hand as a vendor in the Kula Market. (We’ll let you know the booth number as soon as we have it!) Not only will you get to meet the myTaT team, but we’re bringing along all of our tattoo sets, as well as doing a “Build Your Own Set” of five tattoos for only $10

    myTaT will be located in the market next to The Greatest Place, which will be the epicenter for everything exciting happening at Wanderlust this year – from the Wanderlust Spectacular (the Cirque du Soleil of yoga) to world famous yogi DJs.

    Why Wanderlust? After working in the health and wellness industry for so many years, I launched myTaT as a way to inspire others with the positive vibes and sense of kinship that is infused into the health culture. Your personal myTaT not only expresses your individuality, but unites you with others who share your motivations and passions. Wanderlust is the perfect fit to connect myTaT with those who embrace life and seek to live each day to its very fullest.

    We’ll be keeping you updated with the latest news from the festival and we hope to meet many of you there! In the meantime, be sure to check out our yoga set in case you just can’t wait ‘til Wanderlust!

    LGBT pride

    June 2014 is now officially Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender Pride Month, according to President Barack Obama!

    The President says it best:

    As progress spreads from State to State, as justice is delivered in the courtroom, and as more of our fellow Americans are treated with dignity and respect -- our Nation becomes not only more accepting, but more equal as well. During Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, and Transgender (LGBT) Pride Month, we celebrate victories that have affirmed freedom and fairness, and we recommit ourselves to completing the work that remains.

    As we continue to move towards a more equal and accepting society, myTaT is here to support your identity, no matter your orientation. There are still many obstacles left in this fight – work-place discrimination, violence against the LGBT community, health and benefit disparities – and it is incredibly reassuring the national spotlight is being shined on these extremely important issues in light. Progress has been made in the 45 years since the Stonewall Inn riots, but there is still much left to accomplish.

    President Obama’s proclamation urges each of us to speak for “tolerance, justice, and dignity -- because if hearts and minds continue to change over time, laws will too.”

    myTaT supports the fight for equality and we are committed to standing up to injustice towards the LGBT community. You can show off your ally status too with a temporary tattoo from our PRIDE collection. Your personal orientation does not matter - it’s about supporting equal rights for all.

    Custom temporary tattoos

    While we know the world LOVES all of our tattoos, we are very excited about the amount of custom tattoos orders that have come our way.  From bachelorette parties to weddings, non-profits to huge corporate events, we have had some pretty fun projects and can’t wait to see what future orders hold.

    Ready to get your own?  The process is super simple.  All you need to do is fill out the Custom Temporary Tattoo Order Form or send us an email at orders@myTaT.com

    The fee to produce your own design depends on the following factors:

    1. Do you already have a design in mind or do we need to create one for you?
    2. Tattoo size – smallest we can produce is 1.5” and largest is 6”
    3. Quantity – minimum order is 100, maximum is 100,000
    4. What do you want on the back?  We recommend having the “How to Apply” instructions as well as “Made in the USA.”  From there you can put anything you want - logo, URL, coupon codes, you name it.  The bigger the tattoo, the more room you will have.

    Once we have this information we can give you an estimate for the design, production preparation and printing fees.  Typical turnaround once we have the final design completed is two weeks.

    Why would you print your own temporary tattoo?  The best answer is, “Why wouldn’t you?!”  Temporary tattoos are the hottest new accessory for any party, event, fitness outfit or as just a daily reminder.  In addition to a really fun way to bring a group together or show the world your passion without permanent ink, myTaT temporary tattoos create an AMAZING photo opportunity.  We all know how much we love to take selfies.  Just think about what would happen if you put your design on a large group and collected their tattoo photos?  What a totally fun way to represent your business, wedding, or team.  Those photos will be shared over and over and over as people share their #mytatlove.

    Come on, its time for you to get your own myTaT designed temporary tattoo and let’s have some fun!
