"As we get ready to welcome summer families all over will be going on summer vacations to the beach, theme parks, water parks and a million other places. I hear over and over again about parents who embark on a day out, worry what will happen if their child(ren) gets lost, and write their cell number on the child(ren's) arm. Michele Welsh herself did this with one summer on a visit to a theme park with her three boys. She explained to her 3 (children) to stay with mommy and daddy, but if they did get separated to show the numbers to an adult. Throughout the day she constantly had to rewrite the numbers because between between water, sweat and sunblock they kept getting wiped off. That day inspired her to create Safety Tat-and for that every parent throughout the world should be grateful!…"

Tattoo You - For Safety! By Mom Logic: Why every kid needs a tattoo like this one.

Everyone from teachers to law enforcement professionals to CNN's own Nancy Grace are raving about them.

Tattoos can be designed on the company's website, which allows for parents to include just the right message -- like information about your child's potentially life-threatening allergies to things such as peanuts or bee stings.

These are great for family vacations, visits to an amusement park, or field trips because they are easy to apply and last for one to five days. The tattoos are also an excellent way to introduce a safety plan with your child in the event that they are separated from you. The tattoos come in bright, fun designs, which only emphasizes this message for your child.

SafetyTat on Mommy Warriors

One of my biggest sources of anxiety is going to a crowded place with the kids and losing track of one of them. It's gotten a little easier as they have gotten older, but it still has the ability to send me into an all out panic. Just this weekend, I was at the farmer's market with my two boys. While juggling bags of broccoli, counting organic apples and fumbling in my purse for cash, I tried my best to keep an eye on the boys who were off to the side engrossed in their recently purchased toys. It was not easy. Then, my fear of losing one of them was further inflamed when I saw a mom running thru the rows of produce stands frantically yelling for her child. Her panic hit me like a wave...

Kindergarten Simplified: A No-Nonsense Guide for Busy Parents by Mary Lou Podlasiak talks about Developing Safety Plans and includes SafetyTat

Developing a Safety Plan suggestions from Kindergarten Simplified

Excerpts from the book: Children take tremendous pride in knowing exactly what to do when others are in doubt. For this reason, you shouldn't feel guilty about frequently quizzing your child about the safety plans that you develop. The information in this section should help you cover the basics, and help you figure out what else you need to do.

Check out the new "SafetyTat" tattoos. These FDA approved, temporary tattoos were invented by Michele Welch, a mother of three who came up with the idea after a nerve-wracking visit to an amusement park. She wrote her cell phone number on her kids' arms, worried about becoming separated, but the water rides and perspiration kept wearing away the ink. Very affordable for parents and schools, they can be custom ordered with phone numbers and even allergy alerts.

When you talk to your child about any serious issues, adjust your body so that you can make level eye contact, while holding both hands in yours.

These gestures will signal that what you're saying is extremely important. If you're asking for information, this will also increase the likelihood that you will get the truth. It doesn't matter if the conversation is negative or positive, once you've finished talking, you should end the conversation with a hug. That is the signal that you are finished and you love your child no matter what. Click here to read more from Kindergarten Simplified or purchase a copy from Amazon.

Upscale baby travel gear temporary tattoos for kids

This is a good idea, and one that I had never heard of until I saw an ad for it in Scholastic's Parent and Child magazine recently. A company called SafetyTat came up with the ingenious notion of temporary safety tattoos for children, and have built a lucrative business on this idea. Each safety tattoo lists a child's emergency phone number and other information that may be important. Safety tattoos are recommended for when your child is going to be in a public place with a large amount of people and will have the potential to get lost: at an amusement park, the zoo, a sports event at a stadium, even at the mall. They sound easy to apply, using a warm, wet cloth, and can be removed with baby oil. SafetyTat also sells quick-stick write-on tattoos that are like stickers which you place on your child and then peel off to remove.

A variety of styles and uses are available, including original safety tats, allergy safety tats (to alert others of any allergies your child may have - a great idea), and even special needs safety tats, to alert others that a child is autistic or non-verbal ...

my son is speech delayed, on the autistic spectrum and has life threatening food allergies and I'm scared to death I'll lose him one day and he'll have no way of getting back to me.

How about you? Is your child allergic? Asthmatic? On the autistic spectrum and is non-verbal? Simply still to young to communicate? Ever thought about what could happen in those instances when you might lose your child? Think: travel (airports, bus stations), amusement parks, family reunions, school field trips, shopping at the mall, even Wal-Mart or Target on a busy day. What's a parent to do?

Enter SafetyTats, simply the best product on the market today to help ease these very real fears. I carry them with me everywhere - so they are always handy to put on my kids. And they love them - they look just like those temporary tattoos that kids everywhere use for fun these days. And one note - my kids both have sensitive skin with a history of eczema and the original SafetyTats were no problem on that front either. The tats were on their arms all day while we were at Six Flags this summer and they never had a reaction.

Have you ever lost your child, even for a second when they hide under the clothes rack at the store, or realize they have freedom and try to run away from you at the store? When my children first turned 2 or 3 I remember those things happening a few times. I remember my blood pressure rising and the panic setting in. But of course, I was running right after my children, and had them safely back with me in 5 seconds.

Dawn Meehan Mom to my six pack reviews

If Lost, Call Me!

Safety Tat has taken an ingenius idea and made it even better. I thought that the original Safety Tats stayed on really well, but these new waterproof, skin-safe "tattoos" have some serious sticking power! They can stay on for up to 2 weeks (or until you're ready to remove them).

And here's another cool feature (leave it to moms to come up with these fabulous ideas!) these new Quick Stick Write Ons can be personalized with the included pen. Now, instead of ordering the tattoos with your cell phone number preprinted on them, you get a pack of blank tattoos and you can write any phone number you want on them! You might write your cell phone number when you take the kids to the zoo and you might want to write both your number and your spouse's when you're on a family trip to Disney World. You might want to include a line about your daughter's peanut allergy on one tattoo or a line about your son's autism on another. If Grandma and Grandpa take the kids on a trip, they can write their cell phone number on the tattoos. I love that these are completely customizable! Oh and the pen marks don't smear, smudge or fade at all!

Cool Mom Picks: Tattoos that even your conservative MIL can get behind

SafetyTat featured on Cool Mom Picks Review www.coolmompicks

"My kids are old enough now that I no longer have to drill them on our phone number and what to do if they get lost. But oh what I wouldn't have given back then for the brilliant SafetyTats, especially when my son was both pre-verbal and afflicted with a life-threatening allergy. These temporary tattoos were developed by a mom who once wrote her cell number on her kids' arms during an outing, only to discover that the ink smudged off, of course. You can choose from myriad of the original styles that apply like ordinary temporary tattoos, or go for the quick stick write-ons, which don't even require water for application. Have them preprinted with your cell number, or get blanks that come with a special pen. Then mark your child as allergic, autistic, diabetic, or simply addicted to tattoos. -Mir"

"They really listen to what the consumer wants, they are offering tons more cute designs and combining packs so that your little one can pick and choose the style they want to have emblazoned on their arm."

"My favorite new item has to be the new Quick Stick Write-On! tattoo. "It is an ultra-durable skin safe applique "tattoo" sticker that is waterproof and will last up to two weeks or until you are ready to remove it." I really like that the Quick Stick Write-On! requires no water to apply you just peel and stick. I mean seriously it was that easy! But the best thing to me about this new addition is that these skin applique tattoos are shipped blank. You can write anything you want on them with the included waterproof tattoo marking pen."

"Another reason I love SafetyTat is that it has helped me to talk to Dozer about getting lost in an almost fun way and not too scary way. We put the tattoo on and I say oh how cool it looks and talk about it and then what the numbers mean and that if you cannot see mommy you should find a woman and show her your cool tattoo and tell her to please call your mommy."

"Overall Rating **** - Excellent innovative product that can potentially save your child and help you broach the topic of staying with mommy and safety in a not so scary way, seriously you cannot beat that"

Whether you're at the park, the supermarket, the mall, or the amusement park, there is no other scary feeling than loosing your young child in a large crowd. Imagine your child young enough that he/she can't memorize your phone number yet just incase he/she gets lost. Well, Safety Tats will provide a little relief to that problem. Safety Tats are washable tattoos that kids can wear. On the tattoos is the contact information just incase your child gets separated from you. This is cute and kids love having tattoos and cute things on their body.

I don't have kids myself but I do use it for baby-sitting. I put the tattoos on all the kids when we go to the park. They all seem to love having the tattoos on them. It has my cellphone number for an emergency. I have never lost a child and would never want to. I rather be safe than sorry though.

Here's another way cool product! ...Have you ever been separated from a child while at a museum, zoo, amusement park, or mall? Do you remember a time when you were a child and you were separated from your parent? Those heart-stopping moments are hard to forget. Having 6 kids, I'm forever doing the head count thing. 1, 2, 3, 4, 5....Where's 6? WHO'S 6???...The tattoos go on easily and they STAY on. I tried scrubbing them off my kids' arms with water and a washcloth and they stayed put. They can be removed with baby oil, but my kids insisted I leave them on. They love them!

How awesome is that? Kids LOVE temporary tattoos! And if they're separated from you, you're just a phone call away. What a piece of mind!

July 2008

So far this summer my family has gone to the beach a number of times, a couple of amusement parks, the zoo, and a few other overly-crowded summer venues. With two young children, I often worry what would happen if one were to get lost. Luckily this has never happened, but I have discovered an item that would be a lifesaver should one of them get lost.

They are temporary tattoos from Safety Tat that have your cell or other phone number listed on them. You can choose from a number of styles, create your tattoo online, and that's it! Simply apply to your child's hand or arm before a "big outing" and feel better knowing that someone will be in touch should your child get lost. I love that these tattoos will not rub off when wet (great for water parks or the beach!) and last for a number of days (great for a vacation!). Plus my older son loves the novelty of a temporary tattoo, so he was excited to wear one on a recent outing.

After having more children at a park than adults, a mom invented these helpful temporary tattoos. As a mom, I know how easy it is to turn around, and your child is no where in sight. My daughter is usually under the clothing rack, but it doesn't make it any less scary those few seconds. I worry more in certain places than in others, and I always worry more when I'm out-numbered. Our Zoo has a poorly designed play area. Unless you are climbing around the structure with them, there is no way you can keep your eyes on them when they are playing. I only have one child, but if I had two or three, I would be terrified there. Those situations are a good time to use SafetyTat. It was designed by a mother with three children. The SafetyTat is a fun and colorful kids temporary tattoo that's personalized with your cell phone number. When applied to the arm of your child or loved one, SafetyTat provides an immediate, highly-visible form of identification that stays in place even when wet and lasts for one to five days. Even better than just your cell phone number, you can buy tattoos with important medical information. I was in a care-giving situation a few weeks ago where it would have been very beneficial for me to know a particular child was autistic. How nice would it be to slap on a tattoo that said 'my child is allergic to peanuts' before you send him off to camp or Bible School?

Tats for Tots SafetyTat on ABC2 NewsABC News in Baltimore, Phoenix, Detroit, Tulsa, Tampa, Cleveland and Cincinnati Features SafetyTat as Tats For Tots

ABC2 News in Baltimore Investigator Joce Sterman shows us how a new temporary tattoo for kids can help ease the panic you feel while trying to find them.

They're kid-friendly with an image to delight every child...Still, it's not the design that makes the difference. Instead, it's the digits that help reconnect lost kids and their families. But the SafetyTats don't stop with the number. You can even customize them if your child has special needs, allergies or health issues. Tattoos highlighting everything from diabetes to autism are available. There's even a temporary tattoo for kids with peanut allergies or tattoos for kids on a field trip with their school.

ABC spoke with Maryland Zoo Security Captain Phill Carr who thinks the idea of SafetyTat temporary tattoos would make his job much easier. Carr states that, on average, the Zoo reports 20-40 lost children per day that have been separated from their families or school groups.

Children are so quick and nimble, that they can easily slip away from you in a matter of seconds. I have never had to live through those split second moments of fear when you don't know where your child is. I'm hoping that I won't ever need to experience that. With Safety Tat, I knew that if the dreaded were to happen, and they did wander off, someone would know how to contact me. I was so excited when Safety Tat offered to send me some of their temporary tattoos to try out and review. We were planning an outing to our local zoo. What a great place to give them a try. And . . . what kid doesn't love tattoos?

I was very pleased with my Safety Tats! They went on easily and stayed on very well!

You may have seen these in the most recent Parents Magazine. You may have read my post about them on my review blog. Now I'm here to tell you how great they are, after branding all my children with them at Disneyland -- All tattooed with mom's cell number

They're awesome! Well, actually - they come off pretty easily. With a bit of scratching, they were history. I don't know if they were reacting with our sunscreen, or what. The kids could SEE them on their arms, and you know how sometimes you just canÕt help but pick at something - that's what they did! I reapplied them to everyone, on the backs of their necks, where they couldn't see them! When I did that, they stayed on until I removed them the next day with makeup remover. I was happy with them, especially for the price: 30 tattoos for $19.95.

We're going to a big birthday party on Saturday, out in the country at a friend's house, where they'll be having pony rides and a jumpy castle and where there will be lots of cool stuff to distract my children and lead them away from my watchful eyes - I'll be branding all of them on Saturday, for sure!

How do you do it - moms of multiples tell it like it is

SafetyTat is a product that should win awards for Best Parenting Idea Ever!

May 13, 2008

What are they? Temporary tattoos, in a variety of cute designs, printed with a cell phone number. Show of hands here: who's headed out somewhere crowded with the family and written on their child's arm with a Sharpie? I totally have. With five kids, four of them itty bitty, and one of them autistic, I'm kind of a freak about keeping track of my children. It's SO EASY to lose track of somebody!

We're going to Disneyland soon, and you can bet I'll be ordering a couple of sets of these before we leave. And they have designs specific for autistic/non-verbal kids! I love it! I think these are the designs we're going to get.

They have lots of cute designs for boys and girls, and designs that alert to other health issues too. I have a friend whose child has a severe nut allergy, and she's going to flip when she sees these! I just can't get over what a fantastic idea this is - it's odd that nobody ever thought of it before! It's so simple, yet so effective. Awesome. This is a mom-run company, and I hope they've submitted their product for awards everywhere!

SafetyTat: could have saved me ten years of my life

April 13, 2008

Enter Safety Tat. I haven't even read half of the landing page, and I'm already determined to buy three of everything they have. The photo front and center says it all: a smiling child with a temporary tattoo bearing her name and a cell phone number. Good lord almighty in a pear tree, why haven't we thought of that?? I think ParentHacks stumbled on it first by suggesting a message with a Sharpie on the tummy, but I really like this idea. Who can find a Sharpie when you need one? I'd rather keep tattoos in my purse and brand my children before going into the breach once more.

SafetyTat Earns "Vibe of the Day" from Babyvibe

April 14, 2008

Here at Babyvibe, some of our little ones are not so little any more and it is a possibility that one of our kids could wander off. While the thought of it leaves a big pit in our stomach, we want to make sure that we can avoid any serious problems. The highly visible SafetyTat seems like a good 'just-in-case' plan, especially for little ones who do not yet know their number. You can easily put on the tattoo with your cell phone number clearly printed on their forearm. The good thing about this: junior can't take it off, the tattoos don't smudge even when wet, and they are fun to wear. If your children like to put stickers on their skin, they'll definitely like a fun tattoo on their arm. Take the time with your children to personalize your SafetyTat. Let them pick out the design and talk about safety and the importance of wearing the special 'sticker' when you are out. At the end of the day, we think this is a wise investment.

New Jersey Family Magazine: Safety Tattoos for Tots

A child lost in a crowd can be one of the most terrifying moments in of a parent's life. But now there's a new way to avoid this fear: temporary tattoos by SafetyTat(tm).

Green Kiddos says SafetyTat is a 'super cool product'

April 11, 2008

All kids love temporary tattoos and this one serves a great purpose of giving your child a phone number in case he or she gets lost. There are several things I love about this product, first is that they only put a phone number, not your child's name. Second is I know my three year old would be super excited to wear this product...

The Wichita Eagle Article: Safety tattoos for the tots

February 13, 2008: Kids love temporary tattoos -- but here's one parents may love even more.

SafetyTats, invented by a mom of three, are intended to keep kids connected to parents when they're visiting crowded public places such as amusement parks, airports or shopping malls.

Personalized with your phone number, the tattoos give lost kids (or their finders) a way to contact their parents. Like other temporary tattoos, they go on with warm water and can easily be removed with baby oil.

A set of 30 tattoos is $19.95 (plus shipping). Find them at

Tattoos for Tots

No no, we're not talking about going under the gun and having a butterfly on your baby's backside for the rest of their life. These temporary tattoos from SafetyTat are designed to keep emergency contact information on your kids. A mother of three came up with the idea after spending a day at a theme park writing her cell phone number on the arms of her kids, having to repeat as it smudged and smeared away.

You personalize them (there are fun designs like butterflies and flowers for girls and rocket ships and dinosaurs for boys) adding your cell phone number (or whatever emergency number you choose). The makers tout them as a great idea for theme parks, zoos, field trips, etc. when it takes only a second to lose sight of your little one. This way, no amount of hand-washing or misplaced papers, can erase how to get in touch with you. Most designs say "If lost, call:" but there is also one for contacting the child's school and another that alerts people to a nut allergy. The temporary tattoos go on like any other, with water, and wipe clean with baby oil or rubbing alcohol. A set of 30 costs $19.95.
