2015 White House Easter Egg Roll

For the third year in a row, TM International participated in the 2015 Easter Egg Roll, which took place on April 06, 2015, on the South Lawn of the White House. This year’s theme, “Hop into Healthy, Swing into Shape” promotes the education of families on smart ways to incorporate healthy eating and exercise choices into their daily routines.

The event featured live music, games, storytelling, cooking demonstrations and traditional egg roll competitions. Temporary tattoos were provided by TM International. The activities encouraged children to lead healthy, active lives in support of First Lady Michelle Obama’s Let’s Move! Initiate.

In keeping with the First Lady’s initiative, 16,000 butterfly and decorated egg temporary tattoos, donated by TM International, provided a fun alternative to candy treats during the day’s festivities.

“Tattoo Manufacturing International (TMI) is honored to have provided the temporary tattoos that were used during the White House Easter Egg Roll,” said Mitch Pisik, CEO.  “We are proud to be part of the First Lady’s initiative and support a healthy and fun event attended by more than 30,000 individuals and their families.”

University of Arizona Cancer Center

TMI has been an ongoing corporate sponsor of the University of Arizona’s Cancer Center,  one of 41 comprehensive cancer centers in the nation, and the only one in Arizona that has been designated by the National Cancer Institute as a Comprehensive Cancer Center, the NCI’s highest designation. That designation is reserved for centers focusing on patient care as well as basic and clinical research, prevention, education, outreach and training.

Community Nonprofit Social Media Initiative

In August, 2013, Tattoo Manufacturing, a division of TMI, launched a program to support hometown nonprofit organizations. Customers are encouraged to nominate their favorite local charities via the Division’s blog and Facebook Page. Each month, TMI will announce one winner on Facebook. In addition to receiving 5,000 custom temporary tattoos and the announcement on Facebook, the selected charity will receive a mention in the TMI Blog, as well as a shout-out in TMI’s other social media channels. Find out more about the charity that we selected each month, along with their mission and how they plan to use their tattoos here.

2013 White House Easter Egg Roll

The 2013 Easter Egg Roll, which took place on May 1 on the  South Lawn of the White House, was focused on promoting health and wellness with the theme, “Be Healthy, Be Active, Be You!”  The event featured live music, sports courts, cooking stations, temporary tattoos provided by TMI, storytelling and, of course, Easter egg rolling.  The activities encouraged children to lead healthy, active lives in support of the First Lady’s Let’s Move! initiative.

In keeping with the First Lady’s initiative, 16,000 butterfly and decorated egg temporary tattoos, donated by TMI, provided a fun alternative to candy treats during the day’s festivities.

“Tattoo Manufacturing International (TMI) is proud to be a partner in the White House Easter Egg Roll,” said Stephen Tooker, CEO.  “We are delighted that temporary tattoos can be used as an example of how non-sugary rewards can add to the fun of special events.”

Boston Strong – The One Fund

In the wake of the Boston bombings on April 15, 2013, TMI employees felt compelled to “do something” to show support for the people of Boston and those affected by the incidents of that long week.

Kristina Collins, Marketing Operations Manager for the company’s Custom Division, came up with the perfect way for largest manufacturer of temporary tattoos in the world to make a difference:  Create temporary tattoos to share, at no cost, with any group or organization raising funds for those affected by the events of Boston Marathon week.

Using social media to offer the tattoos to any group which posted its upcoming fundraising events on the company’s Facebook page, Collins envisioned not only a way to offer the tattoos, but also a forum in which groups could share with each other the innovative things they are doing.

A heart-shaped American Flag with the words “Boston Strong” framing its edges was created by TMI Graphic Designer Gregg Price.

Additionally, 250,000 of the Boston Strong Temporary Tattoos were donated to One Fund Boston, and cash contribution was made to the organization.
