Tattoo yourself with no pain and the added bonus of being able to scrub it off with hot soapy water. These decal papers enable you to use your inkjet printer to print 'tattoos' that look just like the real thing! They take minutes to make and, if left un-scrubbed, will last for days. Brilliant for kids and teenagers who want to experiment, or for trying out a design before having it tattooed for real.
Our tattoo sheets come in twos: one printable A4 sheet and one adhesive film. The process is quick and easy.
Adhesives may cause skin sensitivity so we recommend you perform a patch test: Cut a small section from the corner of both sheets and follow the instructions to create the tattoo. Do not print on the patch test, leaving the tattoo paper blank will allow you to watch for signs of skin sensitivity. Select an inconspicuous area of skin and apply the tattoo paper. Check the tattoo periodically over a period of 12 hours and if redness or irritation occurs, use soap and warm water to gently remove the tattoo paper from the skin. If your skin shows signs of sensitivity during the patch test, we do not recommend that you use this product.
To create your tattoos, first, reverse your image / text on your computer then print the tattoo onto the printable sheet. Peel back a corner of the adhesive sheet and line the adhesive up with the printed side of the tattoo paper. Carefully stick the corner of the adhesive sheet onto the tattoo paper then run a ruler down the adhesive sheet, peeling the backing paper away as you work to prevent any air bubbles from forming between the adhesive sheet and the tattoo paper.
Cut the individual tattoos out using scissors or a craft knife, keeping as close to the edge of the tattoo as you can. To apply the tattoo, peel the glossy backing away from the adhesive side of the tattoo and apply the tattoo to clean, dry skin. Press the tattoo down well. Wet some tissues or a sponge and press it onto the surface of the tattoo. After 10 seconds or so, the top layer will become saturated with water and will slide off the tattoo, leaving the tattoo in place on your skin.
As with all our decal papers, these tattoo sheets are extremely cost-effective because as long as the leading edges are cut at right angles you can put them through the printer time after time - thus using every square inch!
Tattoo papers aren’t just for skin, and can be used to create dramatic decal effects on other surfaces such as plastics, soap, wax and sealed wood!
