Risks and challenges

Baby Tattoo has launched, completed and fulfilled multiple Kickstarter campaigns. While we generally know what we are doing, we have also learned to expect the unexpected. Unforeseen detours can result in delays that make our delivery estimates inaccurate. Ironically, time travel could resolve this issue, but that sort of temporal tampering has been know to cause chaos if not undertaken carefully. So, although we may unintentionally keep you waiting for your rewards longer than expected, in the end we will deliver items that live up to your highest expectations (and beyond).

    Level Zero: No Rewards

    If you would like to support Otto & Victoria's time travel endeavor, but desire nothing more than gratitude in exchange for your generosity, we don't exactly know how to express our enthusiasm, but will do our best (probably by electronically messaging you some sort of adorable "thank you" image created by Brian Kesinger). Keep an eye on the "Level Zero Rewards" image to see what bonus perks develop over time.
