I keep an excel spreadsheet with my glitter tattoo inventory - so I can track what I order, what sells, how much money I have invested in stock, and how much money I've made.
The names are all Faketoos names, but you could probably find equivalents in other brands.
Here's my top 10 designs for my area:
1. Hibiscus
2. Grenade
3. Jurassic Park
4. Tribal Dragon 2
5. Hello Kitty - Nerd
6. Chihuahua
7. Plumeria
8. Peace Sign
9. Optimus Prime
10. Rose

Other popular designs, but not Top 10: Mermaid 2, Hummingbird, Paw prints, Superman, Batman, Ninja Turtle, Mario Mushroom, Nautical Star)

Bottom 10
These are not just unpopular, though some are. Some of them I would rather put pins in my fingers than peel off the little bits:
1. Dora the Explorer - gods help me if I ever order this again
2. Spongebob - both the bits and it's not as poplar as I would have thought when compared to some of the others
3. Jacob/Edward - not even peaked interest in these
4. Flaming Soccerball
5. AC/DC and Korn - surprisingly, just wrong for my area
6. USB/Facebook "Like" - thought they'd be geeky fun, but nobody wants them
7. Team "Whoever" (Jacob, Edward, Harry, Hermione, etc) - they just don't sell
8. Iron Man - Kids would rather have an Iron Man face than the words.
9. Yo Gabba Gabba characters - just not huge in my area
10. Footprints

So what is your top 10? Bottom 10?

Yes its always good to have your local sports teams! Also keep in mind to order stencils that suit both ages and sexes. Also order some to practice with.

This is just my opinion but you can't go wrong with
Butterflies, stars, lips, hearts, hello Kitty, dolphin, hibiscus, Batman, something tribal/unisex,hummingbird, flowers, grenade,... I know you can't go wrong anywhere with those. But never second guess what the public wants, oh and peace signs.. order different sizes and ones that you Can combine. Smile

Popularity of designs seems to differ with each event. I cut all my own stencils and have designed many of them myself. I've sold out of the FB like button stencil several times this summer, so I guess it really does depend on the area and the venue.

EileenF is so right... never second guess what the public wants. Had a dozen Unicorn with stars stencils sitting in inventory for 2 years untouched, when I suddenly sold out in one day. Guess what the trend was? BOYS getting them on their freakin' foreheads in neon pink and baby blue. And lips on the nipples in red. And tramp stamps in pink, purple, and blues. BOYS paying each other to wear girly tats. Hello Kitty in Silver with a Pink bow. Mark Reid says, "Boys Will Be Boys". I wonder what he'd of done if he were there that day? LOL Boys paying me $20 to tat their nipples. "I'll pay you $20 to put a kiss on his nipple and tattoo my name across his lower back." I ask, "How much are you paying him to be branded by you?" He replies, "Twenty bucks." Okie, dokie then.

Whatever.

BTW - no, I do not usually put tats on the face. These were persistent teens who insisted they'd take the risk and bare responsibility. Any other time, I just say, "Anywhere but the face."

ALERT! I just discovered that Faketoos has altered the Dora and Spongebob so no more tiny pupils and far less bits and pieces!! I haven't tried the new style yet to know how much easier they are, but I noticed on the website the picture looked different without the pupils and I emailed to ask him if they had been redesigned. Like you guys I had been wishing I had not ordered those designs but now that I know they have been simplified I may consider restocking, just thought you all would like to know!! (Smile)

@Kaci - good to know! There are some pieces I don't mind picking off, but those little pupils on a wiggly, tiny arm? Oy!

Yup, looks like you still have to pick off the white part of the eye, but less annoying than the pupils within the sclera!

My most popular girl stencil is Hello Kitty, hands down. I also sell lots and lots of butterflies (of course). Dolphins. Ponies. Flowers. The boys pick the bat, the superhero designs, the flaming football, the lacrosse sticks. Lots of people pick the sports teams.
