Temporary Tattoo: Newest trend

A tattoo that looks 100% real, but doesn't require decades of commitment is called temporary tattoo.
temporary tattoo is a decorative image that can be applied to the skin for short periods of time. Most temporary tattoos are novelty items made with a special type of decal. A process known as screen printing is used to create the tattoo image on paper coated with a transfer film.

Temporary tattoos can look just like the real thing; many of the popular brands of tattoo ink are safe, smudge proof and last on the skin for days. The one that only lasts maximum 6 months. Temporary tattoos are also a great way to try out a tattoo design before you make the commitment to get a permanent tattoo.

Why do people want a semi-permanent tattoo?

Because they don’t like commitment. The fact is, when you insert tattoo ink under the skin, it's there to stay. It may fade over time, but it won't just disappear.

You can still enjoy the art of tattoos, but be safe and smart about your choice. You may want to consider a temporary tattoo before or in place of a permanent tattoo if you:

  • Aren't sure that you will always want a tattoo
  • Aren't sure that you will always want the specific tattoo that you’re considering
  • Can't afford to attempt to have a tattoo removed later on
  • Are concerned about the possible health risks of infection or allergic reaction from a permanent tattoo
