FAQs

General Tattoo Information

How long will the tattoo last?

The tattoo will last up to 7-10 days, depending on wear and tear. The skin must be clean before applying the tattoo. Dirt, sweat and sunscreen will affect the application process and length of wear.

How do I apply the tattoo?

Application is quick and easy. Every order comes complete with instructions for application and removal.

  1. Cut out the tattoo with scissors staying close to the print edge.
  2. Ensure the area of skin is clean and dry.
  3. Remove the protective film from the tattoo.
  4. Apply tattoo face down onto clean skin.
  5. Using a damp cloth, moisten the entire tattoo and hold in place for approx 20 seconds.
  6. When the tattoo is ready, the white backing paper will lift easily. If you feel any resistance, hold the damp cloth on a bit longer.
  7. Pat the applied tattoo with the damp cloth.
  8. Allow the tattoo to dry completely before touching.

How do I remove the tattoo?

Saturate the tattoo with oil (baby, lavendar, eucalyptus, tea tree), wait 15-20 seconds then rub off.

Where should I put the tattoo?

We recommend the tattoo be placed on the back of the hand or just above the wrist either on the inside or outside of the arm, where it is highly visible.

Where shouldn’t I put the tattoo?

Tattoos are not to be placed over broken, irritated or sun burnt skin, nor do we recommend they be placed around the eye area.

Can I wash the tattoo in the bath/shower with soap?

Yes you can, however the more care you take the longer it will last.

I have sensitive skin. I’m not sure if I can use the tattoos. Can I try it first?

We suggest you purchase a sheet of standard tattoos for only $4.  A number of customers with allergies have successfully used TRENDe-tatts however this is an affordable way to try the product and decide for yourself if it is suitable.
