Are Temporary Tattoo Designs For You?

Aug 17, 2007
Getting a tattoo, as you have probably already guessed, is no simple decision. Once the tattoo design has been superimposed onto your skin, it is a permanent part of your overall appearance. Having a tattoo done isn't like going to the store and buying a t-shirt. If you don't like the t-shirt you buy, sure you can return it for something better, however when it comes to a tattoo, it's not so easy. You may choose - if you're brave enough - to undergo the necessary and painful laser surgery to remove the tattoo, however for most, a tattoo will stay for life.

Now that may all sound a little daunting, particularly if you aren't so sure you really want to go ahead and "get inked", however there is a solution for you: temporary tattoo designs.

What is a Temporary Tattoo Design?
The name itself is about as self-explanatory as you can get. A temporary tattoo design is a tattoo design you can apply to your skin and wash off! These are the ideal solution if you are reasonably keen on getting a tattoo, yet not quite sure if it's the way to go. With a temporary tattoo, you can choose a design that you really like, and apply it to your skin to trial the design. That way, if you find you don't particularly like the design or you don't like the look of the tattoo on your skin, you can simply wash it off.

Temporary Tattoo Application and Removal
Generally, temporary tattoos are simple to apply and painless. To apply a temporary tattoo, the film with the tattoo design on it is applied to the skin and after a time, the film is pulled away from the skin according to the transfer instructions. Typically, a temporary tattoo will last a few days, however sometimes the tattoo will still look reasonably good even weeks after the application. If you do not like the look of the tattoo or wish to remove it, you simply wash off according to the instructions - usually by using baby oil or a safe alcohol-based cleaner suitable for cleansing the skin.
