Common children's designs can include animals, fairies or butterflies. More popular among the teenage group are tribal patterns, glitter tattoos and decorative designs. Additionally, many companies use temporary tattoos as promotional items. For these tattoos a company design or slogan is imprinted on the tattoo.
