Worried your pals will be green with envy over your new Heron? Egret about it. 

This Heron Tattly is a detail extracted from the painting Study of Birds and Monkey (1660/1670) by the Circle of Jan van Kessel. Working with the National Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C., this design is one of our first produced as part of a licensing partnership with an art institution. Learn more about our partnership in our interview with Gregory Jecmen, an Associate Curator of Old Master Prints and Drawings at the National Gallery of Art here.

Tattlys are safe and non-toxic, lasting on average 2-4 days. We suggest placing on oil-free areas where skin does not stretch and keep them clean! Watch our Application Video to become a pro.

Circle of Jan van Kessel

Designed by

Circle of Jan van Kessel

Antwerp, Belgium

Born into a family of painters and artists, Jan van Kessel (Flemish, 1626–1679) is most well-known for his small-scale depictions of flora and fauna. Inspired by Joris Hoefnagel's (1542-1600) scientific naturalism, van Kessel's paintings, and those produced by The Circle of Jan van Kessel, are recognizably by their bright colors and intricate detailing.
