Hello guest
Your basket is empty

Our first blog of 2024 and it felt entirely fitting for me to write an article about our current home page hero artist Nina Lewis. 

When we first spoke with Nina about a new collaboration, it was obvious that her work would become a delicate and natural fit for the Tarttu Temporary Tattoo first launch. 
 
This was heading to become a special launch phase for us, we wanted designs which would reflect our own brand personality. I was looking for a style which would capture natural beauty and I’m grateful for the collaboration. I love how the painterly styling of Nina’s work sits effortlessly on the skin. 
 
Nina created four beautiful designs which we felt should showcase on our website. The designs, both working together as a collection and also separately as one off pieces, enrobing the skins natural contours. They also work really well with all skin tones. Beautiful. 
 
Here’s what Nina told us in her own words about her temporary tattoo designs: 
 
“I have loved to paint flora and fauna for a long time, I was drawn to watercolour mediums whilst at college as I felt the nature of the paint perfectly echoed the organic forms found in nature. 
 
The details within foliage and flowers can be hard to capture in tattoo form, but the temporary tattoos retain the delicacy and textures from original paintings, even down to the smallest of ladybirds! 
 
Flowers are often popular designs for tattoos as they symbolise a range of emotions and meanings, from friendship (Sweet Peas) to everlasting love (Bluebells). Whilst the humble ladybird is said to represent good luck. 
 
I had in mind that all the tattoo designs could stand alone, for a more subtle look, but they could also work in harmony together - which Tarttu showcased so beautifully during their model shoot”.
