Some of our earliest memories of (and experiences with) tattoos involved bubble gum. We loved going to the local milk bar and buying those single pieces of gum with the money leftover from picking up some milk and the weekend newspaper. The surprise of the design of the temporary tattoo enclosed within the packaging was rather exciting in that day and age; really, it was more about the tattoo than the gum.
While the flavour of the gum didn’t last long, those tattoos gave days of enjoyment. The tides have now turned – a bubble gum tattoo will be ever-lasting and most definitely cannot be scrubbed off like a temporary tattoo.
The imagery of the free temporary tattoos was rarely something appealing, and definitely never something cute and pastel, but now the choice is all yours. These top 10 (15 as of September 2019) bubble gum tattoos feature gum ball machines, pieces inspired by Grease, and some cute and badass gals blowing bubbles with their gum.
How would represent bubble gum in a visual form?
