What starts as a simple prediction effect ends with a spectator’s signature visibly moving to a different card. John Bannon’s Tattoo You is a powerful effect that your spectators don’t see coming. It’s one of those strange effects where it seems like you make an impossible object in real-time that you can then give away as a souvenir.

Here’s what happens:

A card is selected from the deck and noted by the spectator. The spectator then puts their initials or signature on the face of the card. A prediction card that has a very different back design from the deck in play is introduced as the prediction card and revealed to be the match. The performer then rubs the two matching cards together and the signature visibly transfers onto the prediction card, which can then be given away as a souvenir.

Tattoo You is a quirky little trick with a little bit of everything. A little bit of mentalism, a little bit of magic, and a lot of fun to perform. Not only is it easy to do, but John teaches some very interesting sleight of hand that every card worker will want to learn.

Another winner from John Bannon. This is an easy-to-do moving ink effect that you give to the spectator as a souvenir at the end. As always, John does a great job teaching this clearly. He even teaches a couple of moves that I had never seen before which are very valuable additions to my skill set. I WILL use these moves in other effects.

Highly recommended!

Pure brain frying material! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2020
Another great piece of Magic by John Bannon!
What a real gem.
Tattoo You by John Bannon will totally fry your audience’s minds.

The instructions are very clear and well taught.
Josh talks about getting into and out of the effect.
There are some sleights to learn, but nothing difficult and John teaches them all in the instructions. There is also a gimmick card you’ll need (not included), but it’s a standard gimmick any card performer would have.

If you want to fry peoples minds and leave them with a souvenir of their experience to show their friends, then get Tattoo You.

Great trick to have in your arsenal. Previously available on John Bannon’s Smoke & Mirrors. The download version actually comes with bonus instruction from Erik Tait. A small twist on the handling but great indeed.

So Far Ahead! Double Climax! Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2020
You'll learn an audience stunner AND great card handling tips to enhance your skills.

Your spectator selects and initials a card that then remains face up on the table.

You pull out a SINGLE prediction card from your pocket. It has a DIFFERENT color back than your spectator's chosen card.

Magic climax #1: Your prediction MATCHES your spectator's selection!

Magic climax #2: Your spectator's initialed card gets picked up off the table and their signature MAGICALLY and VISUALLY jumps to your prediction card!

Your spectator can freely examine both cards.

High recommended! Get this!

Fast, clean, clear magic at it’s finest Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2020
This trick is beautiful, it can be done quickly, and the effect is clear and powerful. I’ll have this ready for walk around gigs in the future. It’s a great trick for after you’ve already worked a table and want something quick to fry their brains.

Decent effect with practice Report this review

If you already write on cards and hand them out, then this is a good trick to through into your set.

A Great Effect ~ Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 25th, 2020
5 Stars for the effect itself. It really is great. As taught, it's perfect for an informal setting but adaptable to your style.
4 Stars for the tutorial. The presentation of the tutorial could have been better scripted and organized. A few of the (minimal) sleights are merely glossed over. But most magicians with some experience will have some familiarity.
Bonus: a new (to me) card sleight is taught!
Erik Tait adds some additional teaching at the end which is helpful.
3 Stars for the lack of a gimmick/value. A gimmick is required and can be made at minimal expense or obtained from Penguin. Again, Tait teaches how to make it with items many magicians may already have on hand.

John Bannon! Need I say more? Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 21st, 2020
say more? Performed Tattoo You from John Bannon last night for some of my regulars.
It's good. Really good!
It is almost move free. And the one move is very well covered.
It requires something that, I am sure, everyone has somewhere in his magic drawer.

A definite must have and must try!

John bannon brilliance Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2020
Ive been doing this trick for about 8 years now and it never fails to get an amazing reaction from people. One of my favorite card tricks in existence. Just recently started doing another version by another magician that has a kicker ending. Im going to work it more but i still get better reactions with this original.

Simple and easy jumping ink trick Report this review
Verified buyer Pro Privacy ON (login to see reviewer names) on February 19th, 2020
This trick is a great opener, it’s quick and visual, leaves them with an impossible souvenir, it’s easy, and it doesn’t involve any complicated gimmicks. You do hand a card out every time, but is an odd backed card so you can replace it from another deck and leave your main deck intact. There are a couple neat moves he teaches that I was not familiar with that I’m happy to add to my skill set. Get this if you could use a great yet simple moving ink type effect.
