How do I apply my temporary tattoo?

1. Cut around your tattoo design leaving 2mm.

2. Ensure the skin is clean and oil free (no hairs is good too).

3. Peel the clear plastic backing off your tattoo.

4. Apply the tattoo to your desired area with the design facing your skin.

6. Using a damp cloth or sponge saturate the backing paper completely.

7. Apply moderate pressure to the tattoo for 30 seconds.

8. Peel back the backing paper and the tattoo will have transferred.

9. Rinse with water and allow to dry.

How long will my temporary tattoo last?

This is all dependant on the location of the tattoo but if applied correctly it should last an average of 3-7 days.

  • Avoid applying your tattoo where there are creases and folds on the skin especially the middle of the arm.
  • Try to avoid friction from clothing, bedding etc. Fibres can rub off on the tattoo transfer.
  • You can try applying a clear talc to your tattoo to reduce the stickiness. This can make it look more realistic too!
  • Our tattoos are fully waterproof but try to avoid scrubbing over the tattoo design when washing.
