Temporary Tattoos for Adults

Do you love body art but are unsure about the life-long commitment?

Temporary tattoos are a great way to rock colorful designs without worrying if you’ll still like them decades later. So if you've always wanted to try them, you're in luck—temporary tattoos for adults have exploded in popularity and offer a lot of different designs to choose from. Brands like Tattly are responsible for producing high-quality, artist-crafted imagery that you’ll be excited to wear on your skin.

So, what exactly is a temporary tattoo?

Think of them like a screen print that goes onto your body.  But instead of conventional printing inks, the ingredients used are safe for human skin. (According to the FDA, all pigments must meet the same requirements as cosmetic colorants.) The designs are printed on a backing paper that’s coated with materials and includes a  transfer film that allows you the flexibility to apply the tattoo anywhere on your skin.

One of the biggest benefits of temporary tattoos is the amount of time they stay on your skin. This body art is meant to last three to four days. But if you really love a design, you might wish it could hang on for longer. 

Here are some tips for how to make your temporary tattoo last:

Place the temporary tattoo on a low friction spot of skin, like your back or inner arm. Area like your forearms, hands, and feet frequently come into contact with other surfaces. This might cause the tattoo to peel or crack.

Apply your tattoo to clean skin that’s been washed to remove any dead skin cells.

Once the tattoo is applied (according to manufacturer’s instructions) and is completely dried, brush baby powder over it with a soft brush. Do this every day to help preserve your tattoo beyond the two to five-day window.

And remember, you can always mix and match temporary tattoos. So, grab a couple of designs and have fun!
