You’ve seen them in stores, in vending machines, and maybe even in your kids birthday favor bags, but if you’ve never printed your own temporary tattoos at home, you are missing out! Maybe you didn’t realize that was even an option, but it is! With a few simple supplies, you’ll be a temporary tattoo printing, applying, and sporting master! I’ve also got some fun printable Halloween temporary tattoos for you guys to download and try too! Because what better excuse to wear a tattoo sleeve, than Halloween?! 😉
The tattoo sheets that I use are made specifically for a cutting machine (like a Cricut or Silhouette), but you can totally use them without the machine too, which is exactly what I did!
First, print the file onto your tattoo paper, following the instructions listed on the back of your tattoo sheets.
Once printed and ready to apply, cut out each image. The closer you cut around each image, the less the amount of visible tattoo sheet will show on your skin. (But do leave a little room so you have something to peel off without damaging the images!)
Apply a damp paper towel or cloth over the top of your tattoo, completely covering the paper backing. Press and hold for 10-15 seconds. (It’s usually done when you can see your tattoo design through the back of the white backing sheet).
These printable Halloween temporary tattoos would also make cute little gift ideas! The printable file comes complete with two full sheets (just cut them right down the center!), or you can cut them out and give them out individually too!
