New Service Uses Artist’s Tattoo Photo to Create One of a Kind Custom Phone or Tablet Cases

tattcase-infographic

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE Media Contact: Adam Anderson TATTCase adam@tattcase.com Long Beach, CA, December 20th, 2013 — TATTCase has just launched a IndieGoGo campaign that aims to put your tattoo onto your smartphone or tablet. The TATTCase process goes far beyond simply taking a photo of a tattoo and printing it onto a generic case.  Using a photo of your tattoo, each case is individually transformed into high quality case by our team of graphic designers. Here’s what our project will create; Amazing Reproductions - The contrast between skin and ink makes it impossible to create a high-quality case with only a photo.  We have a team of top-notch designers who will take your photo and transform it into a case of the quality you would expect. Sleek design - Our cases offer a custom fit, snap-on design with a raised bezel that feels exquisite to the touch.  They provide good all around protection, maintain ease of access to all of your device ports, and protect the screen when your device is face down, so you can show off your unique case without worry. Easy as can be -  All that is needed to get a TattCase is a photo of a tattoo and your approval of the pre-production work.  After that, it will be delivered right to your front door. Anyone interested in obtaining a TattCase can visit http://IndieGoGo.com/TattCase About TattCase Our mission is to put your tattoo on your case.  Learn more at; TattCase.com facebook.com/Tatt.Case #TattCase (twitter) Read More »

Courtesy of Tattoo Archive: The Pike, often known as the “Coney Island of the West”, was a large amusement park located on the waterfront in Long Beach, California. It all started with a pier that was built in 1893 that grew into a major amusement area. It is unknown when or where the first tattooist set-up shop at the Pike, but it was probably in the corner of one of those small arcades that lined the, “Walk of a Thousand Lights…” Read More »
