Temporary, washable tattoos would make sense... But a tattoo sleeve? What a trashy product concept....

For me the issue is that in general NHL marketing is completely off base with its fans. Take a look at some of the stuff they have for women.. the female hockey fans i know would never be caught dead in 90% of the stuff they have.

I'd rather take a sleeve off my kid then wash off a temporary tattoo.

puck daddy just had a article about it this morning

which btw, this is the best part of the article

There are currently only 19 teams with fake tats on Shop NHL. Among the missing in action are the Montreal Canadiens, because the sleeves are likely flammable, and the New Jersey Devils, because their fans already look like this.

Kids love fake tattoos... The washable ones have always been popular... Never heard a kid want his entire arm looking like a tattoo... Personally if I was a parent I wouldn't want to have to explain to anyone why my kid is wearing a fake tattoo sleeve.... Looks like something the NBA players wear....

Tinker Bell makes sense... But that doll face on a Rangers personal hand fan? That thing scares me... Take the head off the top and maybe I don't mind it as much....
