HoloTats are the temporary tattoos that come to life

Take temporary tattoos to a whole new dimension (literally) with HoloTats.

HoloTats are like the temporary tattoos you covered yourself in as a child, except they’re way better. HoloTats use augmentated reality to bring the body art to life.

These temporary tattoos get applied just like any other. Pick your desired placement, stick it there and add a little water before removing the backing. Making your HoloTat come to life is just as easy as the application process. Simply download the free app, scan the tattoo and watch it become active! The app even makes it super easy to share your experience with friends.


HoloTats come in a variety of designs too. Choose from playful pets, wild animals, hot rods, marine life, and mystical creatures. And the best part is prices start at only $9! So why not add some modern fun to the traditional temporary tattoo?
