The Magic of Temporary Tattoos


Temporary Tattoos- the new Black

Over the years people have tried many different ways of transferring images to the body for body art and design. Tattooists use a spirit based carbon stencil which puts down a purple image as a trace outline and then needle over it. Temporary Tattooists can also use this method as well, but instead of needling the outline they will tend to use a jet Black ink to paint over the top of this outline and then powder the design back.

Drawing the image freehand is another way to go to creat the Tattoo or body art you wish. For this purpose an excellent construction ink is needed to be able to paint a line as fine as a pin without bleeding

Henna is yet another way of creating an image onto the body. Henna is a paste made from natural plants with ingredients added to it to pipe onto the skin. When it dries you get a stain on the skin lasting a few days.

With technology there is now another way of transferring an image onto the skin tattoo transfers. These are created by you as design art on-screen and then printed onto a specially coated water release transfer paper. The paper is either screen printed, off set printed or digitally printed to give fabulous results.
