The Milwaukee Admirals came to looking for an alternative for tattoos that needed water to be applied. Many teams use tattoo stations on their concourse to brand fans with logos, but the Admirals preferred to just distribute the tattoos without having to staff a station with people to help apply the tattoos.

Another example of these low-cost giveaway is for fundraising. We spotted a Breast Cancer Awareness event that added a pink ribbon temporary tattoo.  These ribbons were available to show support for the cause and provided to race spectators and participants. To raise additional funds, some sell pink ribbon temporary tattoos at the events as well.

Here’s a fun example of a team using temporary tattoos with a game night promotion.

Minor promotional nights are opportunities for teams to have fun with a game, build a theme around it and drive some media, ticket sales, and game entertainment around a concept. A good example is a recent promotion by the Fresno Grizzlies, called K-Fed Night. K Fed being maligned hip-hop singer and Mr. Brittney Spears Kevin Federline.  

K-Fed is also a Fresno local and was “honored” at the game.

FRESNO, Calif. – The Fresno Grizzlies are proud to announce that Saturday’s game versus the Sacramento Rivercats will be dubbed K-Fed Night in honor of Fresno native Kevin Federline. The night full of laughs will be kicked off by a temporary tattoo giveaway which the first 3,000 fans to enter Grizzlies Stadium will receive. In addition, fans can expect to be entertained by video clips illustrating Federline’s career and a skit from Parker, the Grizzlies mascot.

Federline was born and raised in Fresno, and attended Bullard High School. Since leaving the area he has worked as a back-up dancer for acts such as Pink, LFO, and Justin Timberlake. Federline has achieved nearly all of his notoriety for marrying pop-music princess Britney Spears, but has also made an appearance in the movie You Got Served and is releasing a rap album in October.

Fans attending the game are encouraged to dress in a style similar to Federline and celebrate the career of a Fresno legend. (source Our Sports)

As noted, the team added a giveaway to the night…the temporary tattoo. The team probably spent less than $300 for the tattoos, which helped to connect the team and the promotion with fans….and made for a lot of photos on blogs and news stories. A nice investment for a low budget, free media style promotional concept.
