  • Arms
  • Legs
  • The back
  • Shoulders

Follow the manufacturer's instructions to correctly apply your temporary tattoo:

Here are the 4 steps to apply your temporary tattoos :

1 - Roughly cut out the tattoo of your choice from the board.

2 - Remove the protective film.

3 - Place it facing your skin and press a wet glove for 30 to 40 seconds.

4 - Gently remove the wet paper and allow your tattoo to dry for about a minute.

And There you go! Child's play, right?

Enjoy your tattoo. It is waterproof and will last between 3 to 10 all depends on how you take care of it!

To remove it, rub with a glove and greasy lotion.

3. Avoid friction

Once your temporary tattoo is applied, it is important to avoid rubbing. This could damage it and cause it to fade more quickly. So avoid wearing tight clothing or doing activities that could rub the tattoo.

4. Protect your tattoo from water

Temporary tattoos are generally water resistant, but it is always best to protect them from water. If you must shower or swim, cover your tattoo with a bandage or plastic wrap.

5. Moisturize your skin

Hydrated skin is healthy skin, and healthy skin is more likely to retain its temporary tattoo longer. Apply moisturizer to your tattoo once a day to help it stay hydrated.

6. Avoid prolonged exposure to the sun

UV rays from the sun can damage your temporary tattoo and make it fade more quickly. So avoid prolonged exposure to the sun when wearing a temporary tattoo.

Additional Tip:

  • If your temporary tattoo starts to fade, you can lightly rub it with a little warm water to put it back in place.

By following these tips, you can extend the life of your temporary tattoo and enjoy it for longer.
