Company Overview

Tattoo Manufacturing International (TMI), the world’s largest manufacturer of temporary tattoos, was founded in 1989 and now produces and ships seven million tattoos every day from its Tucson, Arizona headquarters.  All products are made in the USA and are exported to 80 countries.  TMI’s distribution channels include Mass, Craft, Toy, Food & Drug, Convenience, Health & Beauty, Seasonal and Specialty.

The hallmarks of TMI are its unparalleled product quality, adherence to universal safety standards, unflinching flexibility and rocket-like speed-to-market.  When it comes to printed novelty products, whether it’s temporary tattoos, children’s activity kits or innovative packaging, TMI can do it all.

One of the company’s unique characteristics is that it is not merely an innovator and distributor of products across a wide range of channels — TMI is its own manufacturer.  All of TMI’s branded products, produced across the company’s four divisions, are envisioned, designed, tested, manufactured and distributed through its in-house facilities.

In 2013, the U.S. Small Business Administration named TM International both the Arizona and the Pacific Region Small Business Exporter of the Year.sba-logo
