Temporary Tattoos: Application and Care

Temporary Tattoos: Application and Care

Before you begin

This is a blog post for those who have purchased my series of Third Eye Blind temporary tattoos, or who have requested a custom order.


Thank you so much

Seriously. Thank you for ordering these! What started as a fun, creative endeavor, has turned into a wonderful discovery of a community of bad ass music lovers & visionaries.

And I love that.


Application

  1. Remove the clear film from your tattoo

  2. Place your tattoo, ink side down, on your skin

  3. Take a wet wash cloth or paper towel and lightly wet the back of the tattoo until all of the tattoo paper is wet. Be sure not to move the tattoo during this time.

  4. Slowly remove the tattoo paper. If any part of the tattoo does not appear to be adhering to your skin, stop immediately and rewet.

  5. Let dry for five minutes.

  6. Enjoy your rad tattoo.


Care

Your tattoo has a thin layer of adhesive film. This film is broken down by water—and this allows the tattoo to initially adhere to your skin. Caring for your tattoo centers around preventing excess exposure to water and reducing movement of the area.

Proper care for your tattoo can allow it to last up to a week. Otherwise, expect it to last 2-3 days.

  1. Apply your tattoo to an area of the skin that requires less movement. For example, applying the tattoo to your shoulder, rather than the outside of your elbow, will allow the tattoo to stay put and last.

  2. Apply your tattoo to an area of the skin that endures less friction. If you put your tattoo on your leg, and you wear jeans everyday, expect that tattoo to endure significant friction.

  3. Reduce water exposure to the tattoo when possible.

  4. If you anticipate water exposure, cover your tattoo with hairspray before and after. Or, you can cover the area with plastic wrap.


I sincerely look forward to seeing your tattoos. Please share them with me on instagram or facebook!

Thanks!
