      Were Garbage Pail Kids stickers or tattoos? - I used to see them littered around the school in the late 1980s.
      Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

        They were stickers, I still have a few I stuck in a book.

        Cookie is probably thinking of stick on transfer tattoos, the ones I remember came in a packet with some gum. They stuck quite well & normally needed a good soak to wash them off.

            I remember those ones, looked just black ink but once you wetted your hand or arm, thE colours would show. Too much water and you ended up with a messy splotches of colour

            our newsagent used to also get them in an a4 sheet size for a couple of pence but they never looked as good as the ones in the above photo

              I recall a bubble gum called Bazooka from the 70s. They contained a small tattoo
