Temporary by name, temporary by nature, the temporary tattoo is meant to only a short time, from a few days to a few weeks. If you want to prolong your tattoo's life, you can take a few extra steps before and after application to keep your rad design looking bright and fresh.
- Cleanse the spot you plan to tattoo. Lotions, makeup, and the natural oils of your skin can all shorten the life of your tattoo. They can create a barrier between the ink and your skin, so the tattoo won't actually stick or be absorbed, and it will come off when the lotion comes off. Oils break down the inks in decal tattoos (baby oil is often used to wipe the tattoo off your skin), so if oil is already present, it will begin dissolving your tattoo right away. Make sure you dry your skin before applying the tattoo.
- Exfoliate the area before the temporary tattoo is applied. Usually the very top layer of your skin is actually dead skin cells that we shed or scrub off. If you apply the tattoo directly onto this layer of skin, it's more likely to flake off as you shed the dead cells. Exfoliation removes this layer, giving you smooth, live skin to work with.
- Choose an area where the skin won't constantly be moving or flexing or coming into contact with oils and other substances. The skin on your hands and feet are constantly stretching and moving, which can cause your tattoo to crack or fade quickly. Your hands also come in contact with lots of different substances throughout the day, from oily foods to art supplies to plain old soap and water. This constant contact may cause your tattoo to fade prematurely. Avoid areas that quickly become sweaty or oily naturally, like your temples, or your feet when you wear socks and shoes. Avoid areas that will rub against your clothes.
- Shave the area before the temporary tattoo is applied. Hair might get in the way of the ink, so if there's a lot of hair in the area where you plan to put your tattoo, shave first. If you are applying to an area you shave regularly, like your legs or neck, the act of shaving may remove your tattoo faster. Shaving before application may allow you to go longer without shaving once the tattoo is applied. Make sure you use a new, sharp razor if you are going to shave over your tattoo. A dull or nicked razor can cause your tattoo to flake.
