Given away at during the rally was this sheet of MINI Takes the States 2010 tattoos.

IT’S A BIG COUNTRY. BE MINI.

Use these temporary tattoos to express yourself, whether you love the look of tire tread or have a thing for checkered flags.  It’s your skin, decorate it any darn way you please.  And if you see a fellow motorer with exquisite tattoo taste and placement, be sure to let him or her know.
