Deadly Sting Tattoos & Wigs was founded in 2007 as Deadly Sting Tattoos, when Jennifer DiMatteo, a Frank-N-Furter with the NYC cast, produced a professional quality "Boss" temporary tattoo to use during performances. The tattoos turned out so well that she thought other Frank-N-Furters (and regular Frankie fans) would find them as useful and convenient as she did, so she began selling them to the public over the internet.
In 2008, Jennifer started cutting and styling wigs for herself and her castmates. This inspired her to enroll in Aveda's hair education program, which she completed in 2009. In early 2010 Jennifer earned her New York State Cosmetology license, and later that year she started offering Rocky Horror-inspired wigs to the performance community. Thus, Deadly Sting Tattoos became Deadly Sting Tattoos & Wigs.
Since 2010, Deadly Sting Tattoos & Wigs has expanded its product line to include custom cast logo tattoos, non-Rocky character wigs, and select Rocky Horror costume accessories. DST&W strives to provide great products and excellent customer service, and looks forward to working with the Rocky Horror community and costuming enthusiasts for many years to come.
