How do I apply my temporary tattoos?

Make sure the application area is free from any oils, lotions, or makeup. You can apply the tattoo as whole sheet or cut out each design first. Remove the plastic film from the front and place on your skin, design side down. Then press a wet cloth down firmly over the top and hold still for about 30 seconds. Be sure the paper backing is fully saturated before peeling it off to reveal your new temporary tattoo!

How do I remove my temporary tattoos? 

Once your tat has reached the end of its life, you can easily remove it in a few ways–either by rubbing it off with a cloth soaked in rubbing alcohol, or applying any kind of oil (like coconut oil), letting it sit for at least 30 seconds, and then wiping it off with a cloth. Additionally, a warm shower first can soften the material and make it even easier to remove prior to the steps listed above.

How long do these tats last?

In our experience they last 2-5 days on average. The time can vary depending on where they are applied and how they are cared for. Temporary tattoos last much longer when applied in an area that isn’t rubbed often, for example, tats applied to hands will be touched and washed more than the outter-side of an arm. We recommend admiring with your eyes and leaving it untouched by clothes and fingers to get the most life out of your temporary tattoo. 

Another placement consideration is the amount of bending and stretching of the skin that will occur. If you apply a tat to your knee or neck, it wears it down a bit faster than a body part that does not bend. 

Can I shower or swim with them?

Yes! These tats are water resistant. When you shower, don't rub or scrub it and it will be just fine. Make sure to give one gentle pat with your towel to dry off, don't rub. When you swim, keep in mind that oily lotions and sunscreens can remove the tat.
