Argentinian Tattoos, Pt. 3 - 1983

Riffing off previous posts featuring Argentinian Aquaman temp tattoos (and the packages they came in) from the collection of F.O.A.M.er John Lijewksi III, come these additional photos from F.O.A.M.er Carlos Mucha!

Even though all the other Super Friends got their own packages and Aquaman did not (grrr), I'm not all that upset because the package art is just so damn cool! They look like a rougher, looser version of Alex Toth's stuff (especially the Superman) and I really dig them. Hmm...now that I think about it, I guess I am kinda mad Aquaman didn't get his own package of tattoos, I would have really loved to have seen Aquaman drawn in this style.

Carlos also sent additional pics of the tattoos, featuring Batgirl (flying?!?), Green Arrow, Green Lantern about to zap a bug, Flash doing some Jazzercise, the Joker, and the stock Super Friends shot--which Aquaman has been unceremoniously removed from! Jeez, I started this post out in such a good mood...

In any case, really cool stuff, thanks Carlos!

Definitely agree on the packaging art, very easy on the eyes. I like Wonder Woman especially.

Batgirl is just throwing herself off a building. Or your shoulder, I guess.
