    No Candy Land board design would be complete without the swirl lollipops and translucent suckers in Lollipop Woods! This whimsical tattoo pays homage to the rainbow-colored, jumbo-sized, swirl lollipops that stand out in every candy shop and hypnotize sweets-loving kids with their bright colors and twisty shapes.

  • Hershey's Kiss

    Every day deserves a kiss, so this chocolate lover decided to plant one right on his skin! This tattoo realistically depicts the crinkles you'd find on the metallic wrapper covering a Hershey's Kiss, as well as the paper plume peeking out of the silver foil. 

  • Ring Pop

    A jewel-shaped, edible, brightly colored hard candy propped atop a wearable plastic ring? Genius! Since 1977, kids have been showing off their sugary bling. Millennials, meanwhile, regard Ring Pops with such nostalgic affection that it's not uncommon for besotted fellas to propose with one of these enormous gem-shaped lollipops. It's easy, then, to see how someone could say "I do" to this tattoo!

  • M&Ms

    This watercolor-style tattoo pays homage to the button-shaped chocolate candy that "melts in your mouth, not in your hands."

  • Airheads

    5

    It may seem hard to believe for those who have grown up savoring chewy fruity Airhead bars, but this taffy-like candy only dates back to 1985. This tattoo nods to the silly, fun-loving vibe of Airheads' shiny Mylax wrappers, which to this day feature the bubble letters and smiling balloon character introduced in their original design.

  • Tootsie Roll Midgee

    Sixty-four million Tootsie rolls are produced each day, which speaks to the popularity of these chewable, oblong-shaped, cocoa-flavored candies. The candy's packaging has barely changed in the 100-plus years since its existence, a testament of the brand's emphasis on tradition. This tattoo of a mini Midgee has an old time-y feel that taps into the Tootsie company's rich heritage.

  • Skittles

    7

    Tropical Skittles, Wild Berry Skittles, Sour Skittles, Skittles Sensations, Skittles Orchard ... Though they're now available in dozens of flavors, the Skittles candies originally introduced to US audiences in 1979 came in five colors and corresponding flavors: red (strawberry), green (lime), yellow (lemon), purple (grape), and orange (orange). The chewy candies were so popular that we've continued to taste the rainbow ever since.

  • Candy Necklace

    Before little girls are old enough to wear their mothers' pearls, they can accessorize with pastel-colored candy necklaces that look good enough to eat — and which, luckily, are designed for that very purpose!

  • Heart-Shaped Lollipop

    This heart-shaped lollipop tattoo is the sweetest thing -- much like love itself! 

  • Candy Corn

    Perhaps no candy variety is as synonymous with Halloween as candy corn. Made out of sugar, sugar, fondant, corn syrup, vanilla flavor, and marshmallow creme, these triangular, tri-color kernels are as synonymous with trick-or-treating season as jack-o'-lanterns and haunted houses. This trio of candy corns certainly deserves to be on display all year long!

  • York Peppermint Pattie

    11

    Though chocolate candies with peppermint centers existed prior to the introduction of the York Peppermint Pattie, the yummy version produced by Henry C. Kessler in 1920 had a hard shell and an equally crisp interior, differentiating it from the fray. People have been running to "get the sensation" ever since. 

  • Pop Rocks

    12

    A carbonated candy that fizzed inside kids' mouths, creating a sizzling and popping sound and producing the sensation of tiny fireworks going off on the tongue? The act of eating Pop Rocks was downright exciting! And, contrary to urban legend, it was (and is) totally harmless to drink soda while eating Pop Rocks.

  • Snickers & Mars

    Why choose between a nougat-filled Mars bar and a Snickers bar with a caramel and peanut center? You can put some play into your day with a nougat-filled Mars bar, then rest assured that Snickers satisfies with its caramel and peanut center. These forearm tattoos pay homage to both chocolate bars with equal enthusiasm — double the flavor and fun!

  • Smarties

    No, consuming Smarties will not help you better your grades or raise your IQ, but they will satisfy your sweet tooth! A common find in trick-or-treaters' bags for over 50 years, Smarties wafers come in six flavors — cherry, pineapple, orange, grape, strawberry, and orange cream — all stacked atop each other to create a roll, then wrapped in plastic and twisted along both ends to secure the treats in place.

  • Sour Patch Kids

    15

    The Sour Patch Kids may live in an egalitarian society but, if the crown-wearing, scepter-clutching creature in this tattoo has its way, their democracy will soon be a monarchy. Even if he does become king, hopefully his character will be much like his flavor: sour then sweet.

  • PEZ

    The block-shaped candies inside each Pez pack may be yummy, but what makes these treats so popular are the collectible mechanical dispensers in which they're loaded. Bart Simpson, Bugs Bunny, Pikachu, Elmo, Superman, Darth Vader, and Hello Kitty are just some of the characters immortalized via Pez dispensers. No wonder Pez can rest on its laurels, as depicted in this tat!

  • Gummy Bears

    Funshine Bear and Wish Bear may have the power to implement the Care Bear Stare, but the adorable gummy bears depicted in this tattoo have their own special skills: The yellow bear with the chef hat is clearly a culinary mastermind while the headphone-wearing bear is a musical genius. And, of course, they're all chewy and delicious!
