Temporary Tattoos-Helping you make an informed Choice


There are so many choices and designs to choose from when thinking about a real Tattoo. Only Temporary Tattoos allow you to test out many Tattoo designs on the body without permanence or pain. The key issue here is being able to make an informed choice and to sample our designs. You can’t sample a needle tattoo, so the next best thing is a non permanent temporary tattoo.

There are many ways that tattoo images can be transferred to the body.

Traditional tattooing uses a spirit based carbon stencil which lays down a purple image as a trace outline. This is then needled in. Some temporary transfer tattoos follow this same procedure where the outline of an image is drawn onto cigarette paper and transferred to the skin with alcohol pads. Then a special cosmetic blue/black/green ink mix is applied by hand over the outline on the skin. This is then powdered back.

Another great way to create tattoos is by drawing the image freehand. For this purpose an excellent cosmetic ink is needed. The ink should be able to be painted on the skin as a fine line without any “bleeding”. Longevity is important so a good design should last on the skin for one week or more.

Henna is another way of testing out designs. Henna, a paste made from natural plants with various added ingredients, is piped onto the skin. There is also an alternative henna which is a cosmetic red/brown ink.

With modern technology there is now another way of transferring an image onto the skin. Image outlines are screen printed onto cigarette paper and the image is transferred onto the skin with alcohol. You can then choose to hand paint the tattoos.

Images of tattoos have been used by the TV and movie industry for many years. More recently, TV shows and commercials have been using temporary tattoos to enhance the style and character of a scene. Usually the makeup artists at the production house will apply the designs.
