WINK is a group of Latvian artists who have created a range of more than 400 temporary tattoo designs, mainly featuring subjects taken from the natural world. This pack was specially designed by Kristiana Kalnina.
All the black-and-white designs are double-ended, with a slanting line marking the division. In some cases, notably the 6s, the number of animals depicted corresponds to the card value. Geometric (Nordic) designs on the Aces. The Joker features a rabbit wearing a jester’s hat. The back design looks double-ended but in fact isn’t. See the box►
