Children’s temporary tattoos are a great way to entertain the kids. They are an extremely fun craft that all kids love.
There are many ways to get kids interested in temporary tattoos and that is by handing them out at parties, putting them in party bags, or just using them at home to entertain the kids. Some companies also offer fundraising packs which are really popular amongst schools and clubs.
There are 2 types of temporary tattoos, there are the ones that are already printed onto transfer paper that can be automatically applied using water. These temporary tattoos are easy to apply and remove and are very safe for children.
Then there are tattoo inks and stencils, where the a stencil of a design is put against the skin, and then an ink pen is applied to color in the stencil. The stencil is then removed leaving the tattoo design on the skin. The ink is water resistant and lasts up to 5 days. All these inks are very gentle and safe for children.
If you are thinking about getting a tattoo but are unsure about what design to get or if the tattoo design you choose will look good on you, why not try out a temporary body tattoo.
By getting a temporary tattoo you can test out the design and see if it works on your body, and if you like it, you can then opt to get a real, permanent tattoo.
What’s even easier is that you can now buy special tattoo paper that you can print on your own home printer. This means you can get a design you like, print it at home and then transfer it onto your skin yourself. This is a very cheap, non threatening way of testing out if a tattoo is something for you.

Temporary tattoos are like stickers that transfer onto the skin when made wet bay a damp cloth. They then last a few days, slowly pealing off after every bath or shower. Temporary body tattoos are cheap to produce and this gives them a wide appeal. Often they are handed out as promotional items, or are found in cereal boxes. You can actually purchase more upscale quality temporary tattoos that look real, which is a great way to try out a tattoo before getting a real one. There are even websites out there that will create a temporary tattoo for you based on your own design. One such site is the “Temporary Tattoo Factory”.

There are other types of temporary tattoos if one doesn’t want to apply a sticker type tattoo to their skin. Even though these are a great way to get a temporary tattoo, they don’t last long and they peel off pretty quickly. So this brings us to 2 other temporary tattoo methods, both henna art tattoos and airbrush tattoos.
Henna tattoos are a form of body art from India. Henna tattoos are intricate beautiful designs usually used to decorate the hands and feet. You can read more about Henna Tattoos at a previous blog by clicking here. Henna tattoos are used by applying an ink that is created from a plant called Lawsonia Inermis. This ink lasts for about 4 weeks on the skin and fades over time, so it is a great solution for a more realistic temporary tattoo. You can even apply henna tattoos yourself with home kits that you can purchase.
These are really the best temporary tattoos because they look so realistic. A stencil is placed on the skin as a template and then, and colors and lines are airbrushed onto the skin. These tattoos can last a week or more before starting to fade. There are a huge range of designs available and many of the designs might be the actual tattoo you are thinking of getting. So it’s a great way to test it out and see if you like it before committing to the real thing.
