FAQs

How do I apply my INKspiration?
Your temporary tattoos are fast and easy to apply; all you need is water! Your skin should be clean, dry and free of lotion, oils and makeup. First, remove the clear, protective top sheet. Then, press the tattoo firmly onto your skin with the design facing down. Hold a wet cloth against the back of the tattoo, press down and make sure to wet it thoroughly. Wait 30 seconds and slowly peel off the paper backing. Gently rinse the image with water for the best results and allow the temporary tattoo to dry before touching or covering with clothing. Every temporary tattoo has application instructions printed on the back, so you don’t have to remember ALL of these steps!

How long will my INKspiration last?
Your temporary tattoos last up to a week or longer depending on the type of tattoo and where it’s placed. The length of time a temporary tattoo will last on your skin is also affected by how and where it is applied. To make the most out of your tattoo, be sure to apply it to clean, dry skin that is free of oil, lotion or make-up. Try to choose a smooth, hair-free area of skin that doesn’t crease or stretch when you move. Also, the tattoo will last longer if it is applied to a part of your body that doesn’t rub against straps or clothing. Once applied, the tattoos are waterproof, so they won’t come off during your run, in the shower, pool or with soap and water but can easily be removed with rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, baby oil or with a few strips of transparent household tape.

How do I remove my INK?
You can easily remove your tattoos with rubbing alcohol, hand sanitizer, baby oil, or transparent household tape. Temporary tattoos are resistant to water and most soaps to ensure that they last up to a week or longer on the skin.
