GK175 Letraset Tattooze Multi-Coloured Skin Transfers [1974]

We start by showing you the most important part of the product: the protective backing tissue.

Here are eight of the sheets (with the tissue removed for clarity). You will observe a certain amount of repetition & variation. I don't think you would need to get all "30 New Exciting Packets" to adequately cover the main points…

One last thing…

The Tattooze pictured below were being sold by Paul Hart back in 2011. He described them as "Letraset Lick And Stick Tattooze, 1973", & says there were fifteen different strips. The instructions are almost the same as GK175, but while the transfers look similar in style to the Dandy Tattooze, they're not the same. The date would be a year earlier than the GK175 Tattooze. Are some of the details wrong? It's hard to reconcile the date with the content, but since we've never seen any of these transfers out of their wrappers it's very hard to assess what might be going on.

If you come across any of these, please let us know, as it would be good to find them a place in Letraset history!
