Application: How to Apply a Temporary Tattoo


Congrats on your cool new temporary tattoos! Here you’ll find the easiest and most effective tattoo application for your design and all our tips to make them last as long as possible:


What you’ll need


·         Cloth, a towel, or a sponge

·         A little bit of water


Let’s Get Started



·         Step 1 Decide where you want to apply the tattoo.  These aren’t permanent but we pride ourselves on the lifespan of our tattoos, so make sure you have it where you want it for up to 7 days.  When you have a perfect position, peel the plastic cover off of your temporary tattoo.


Step 2 Place the paper on your body with the tattoo side on your skin. Apply pressure evenly.  (Don’t worry if you don’t get it spot-on the first time.  Even if the tattoo isn’t sticky anymore, the image will still transfer.)


Step 3 Get your cloth, towel or sponge wet and dab it on top of the tattoo paper, covering the entire tattoo.  Be sure to completely saturate the paper because the water is what releases the tattoo from the paper. Hold this for 30-60 seconds to ensure the whole tattoo is transferred.


Step 4 Peel the paper off to get a look at your new body art!


Step 5 This step is our little secret.  Before you go show off your new tat, dab off the excess water and rub just a tiny bit of lotion on it to add a little vibrancy and extend the lifespan of your tattoo!


All done!  At this point, the tattoo application is done and looking great.  It will stay on for 5 – 7 days with normal wear-and-tear, and a few days if you’re out there rolling around in the mud!
