I was flipping through a magazine a while back and saw “tile tattoos” that I thought were interesting. They’re basically waterproof, removable stickers with fun designs that only require water to apply. If you aren’t ready to replace all of your tile; if you’re a renter; if you’re someone who likes to change things around frequently; or if you just love the designs, these can be a great way to add some color and pattern or just cover up old tile.
The brand that I originally saw was Mibo, a UK based company with a variety of beautiful designs.
This style is called Ventnor. I think the blue is really pretty, but it comes in several other colors as well, including some that are two-tone like this and some that are a single color.
This animal themed one would be fun in a children’s bathroom where you want a design that you can change as your kids grow and change. And unlike many animal graphics, these aren’t too “kid-like” to work in other spaces as well.
Another company that makes tile decals is Sticviews. They have different patterns and styles than Mibo, and they also offer the ability to upload your own design.
This is an example of a design that’s very trendy – aqua blue and a Suzani-like pattern. It’s fun and bright, but it’s not necessarily something you would want for the next few decades. Since these are removable, you could put them in your home now and switch them out in a few years (months, even!)
And if you like traditional tattoos and want something long-lasting – no temporary tattoos for you! – Modwalls offers a line of Tile Tattoos, sold by the piece and designed by two tattoo artists. These are actual tiles rather than just decals, but they’re similar in that you would probably use a few of these as accents rather than filling an entire space with them.
Designs include this anchor, a heart that says “Mom,” and more. Their Lush tiles coordinate with the tattoos and come in several colors.
Any of these decals could go on very simple wall tiles; the Mibo stickers in particular are made to go best on white 4×4 tiles but will work on other tiles as well. They would also be good accents where you’re using glass accents.
These are a few quick examples from our showroom of what you could use with these decals. If anyone has used these personally, let us know! I’d love to see how they look.
