DIVA DISH: Tribe Tats, A Party Pleaser for All

DIVA DISH: Tribe Tats, A Party Pleaser for All

So I got to work on a project and see my parents down in sunny Florida not long ago. Not too shabby. And while there, I tested this new temporary tattoo brand.

You may recall this instagram post:

These tats are so much fun and ahhh-mazing for a pool party or a music festival or just… you know… living. Not only are they show-stopping conversation pieces in the form of metallic body art but also, they come pre-perforated. Hallelujah! You don’t need scissors! They also include super-chic rosegold in addition to silver and gold. They wear well for 4-6 days if you don’t use tons of body lotion or oily sunscreen, and longer if your skin is on the drier side. Then they come off with a simple swipe of rubbing alcohol or baby oil. Perfectomundo.

Tribe Tats sell for $24-28 for 4 sheets filled with designs. The creator of the brand, Degelis, told me that the designs are meant to compliment your own jewelry. And when they arrived for testing, I could attest that they definitely do. But another thing I love about them is if you want to travel light and worry-free, you can leave your real jewelry at home. 

As you may have seen, my mom Rosie also got in on the Tribe action. At 65+, she was ALL ABOUT THEM and rocked her statement necklace for well over a week, in perfect condition I might add.Tribe-Tats-DIVAlicious-3

I asked Rosie to share her thoughts on them. Turns out she had lots to say…

When you first showed me the kit, I was definitely apprehensive, but I always trust your judgment.  You applied that necklace and voila, I was hooked!!!  I wore it for over a week.  I went to the pool and my friends thought it was so cool.  I went to the dentist and the receptionists and nurses went wild asking me where I bought them.  After, I easily removed it with baby oil.  

Since you left me the kit, I began trying out the different styles on my friends.  They had seen my necklace and were curious.  I told them how to remove the tattoos if they were not happy. Diane, Lucille, and Norma had so much fun picking out which tattoos they wanted to wear.  I quickly applied the tattoos using the simple directions and the ladies were delighted with the results. They received compliments galore!

I will take them on my next trip so I don’t have to worry about expensive jewelry! I can go swimming and dining with my Tribe Tats. The tattoos are awesome by the pool. They are a  perfect, pretty and worry-free way to accessorize while sunbathing!

I never thought I would wear a tattoo!  People have been asking us where we got them.  I send them the link. The whole experience ended up being such a hit. I got so many compliments I couldn’t believe it. I’m definitely buying more of these metallic tattoos to rock over the summer. Thank you for introducing us to such a cool and youthful accessory!!

Well said, Rosiecruise!

And, of course, upon hearing this feedback I asked (read: begged) for photos of the Boca Babes rockin’ their tats.

Again, Rosie delivered.

Her friend Diane noted, “You can never get enough sparkle in your life.” Who am I to argue?

Lucille added, “Great beach accessory!!  So lightweight and sparkly!!” I need to hang out with these women more.

And best of all may be Norma who, at 80 years young, went for a mix & match custom-made statement necklace. And killed it!


“This necklace makes me feel so pretty and young.  I don’t want to take it off”.


Norma puts my own custom creation to shame, snapped at a party by my now-fiancé in the most unflattering angle known to photography ever. (Thanks, babe.)



Anyhoooooooo, the verdict, in case you somehow missed it:
