Souvenir Saturday - Disneyland Tattoos

Welcome to Souvenir Saturday! Today let’s check out some Tattoo’s (no, not the little breather kind). These are undated, but I’m will to guess they are from the earlier days of the park, possibly 1956, does anyone know?

The cover prominently displays the Disney characters, however they are relegated to the last page of tattoos and even though most of the tattoos are still in this booklet, the character page is almost empty.

First we start off with a page of tattoos for each land. I reversed all these scans so you didn’t have to hold your monitor up to a mirror to view these properly. And yes, I know your asking “Do these still work” they sure do! In fact, the “certified colors” still adhere to you skin quite nicely.

An entire page of Disneyland Logos! The art work in all of these is really fun. Hey, you can crop all of these and create you own 1950’s Clip Art collection!

Two page of land “extras”. I am so digging those light posts and Main Street Vehicles!

Here’s the last page, there’s just about a quarter of it left, even the characters are in costume for Disneyland!

I was aware of these, but had never actually seen the tattoos! I'm pleased to see so MANY actual Disneyland items, and not so many characters. I really expected it to be the other way around.

That giant squid would definitely make a cool REAL tattoo!!

Funny how times change. Disney tattoos were A-OK for kids in the 50's, but just let Mattel introduce a new "tattoo for you" Barbie doll and watch the flack fly.
