Those original image stickers were used as hidden surprises in bubble gums and various snacks. There were no long lasting temporary tattoos back then. All the stickers could be easily rubbed off skin as soon as they were placed.

Snack and toy makers were constantly using temporary tattoos to entertain kids and adults. Years passed by and companies managed to develop scented tattoos and later introduced screen printing method. The new long lasting temporary tattoos looked more realistic than ordinary images.
