The first picture above is courtesy of Tonni Hansen, & the next is from Andrew N (of Australia) who, as you can see, is an avid collector of Dandy Gum.

He also provided us with these two scans; the first shows one of the Tattooze with its protective cover still attached, & the second shows a wrapper.

Here are some Tattooze with the paper removed. You can see that they were printed by Letraset, which caused some amusement when it was spotted. We think perhaps Dandy may have approached Letraset (after the success of "Dandy Bubble Gum with Action Transfers") on the basis that they were 'the transfer people'; & Letraset were not a company to turn down an opportunity. Printing waterslide transfers or temporary tattoos is, of course, a lot easier than printing dry rub-down transfers.
