An Arizona-based temporary tattoo manufacturer, which got its start in a garage before growing into a big business, is now looking to leave its mark on trick-or-treaters – literally.

While costumed kids still are sure to be bombarded with the holiday’s traditional candy, Tattoo Manufacturing and its parent company TM International have unveiled more than 100 new Halloween-inspired tattoos in hopes of positioning their product as an alternative to candy this Halloween.

With a collection including devils, ghosts, pirates, pumpkins, skulls, spiders, witches and vampires – some of which glow in the dark – Damon Safranek, director of corporate strategy and analysis for TM International, said the company also has seen a notable uptick in the number of people adding them as the finishing touches to their costumes.

“We see a lot of traffic for both treats for children and Halloween costumes,” Safranek told BusinessNewsDaily.

Halloween sales are just a small part of what has helped turn a one-person operation into the world’s largest temporary tattoo manufacturer, printing more than 6 million tattoos each day.
