How are Body Art Temporary Tattoos different from normal temporary tattoos?
Unlike temporary tattoos purchased in the store you personalized your tattoo with your own designs your computer and ink jet printer.
Normal temporary tattoos are printed with an ink that is transferred to the skin. This ink is approved for application directly to the skin by the FDA. Since we cannot control the ink used in color ink jet printers, ink that is not FDA approved, we developed a unique system for creating ink jet tattoos.
The image is printed on a very thin carrier film. A thin film of medically approved adhesive is then applied over the printed surface. The adhesive is placed on the skin ( the same adhesive used on medical bandages ). The thin body art film rests on top of the adhesive.
Water is actually applied to the tattoo liner sheet which is then slid off the body art film.
The whole system sounds much more complicated that really it is.
Each package of Body Art tattoos contains easy to use instructions.
Is the removal process the same as normal store bought tattoos?
Body art tattoos are removed in the shower with soap and water.

Temporary tattoos are only water resistant to a point.
You can wear your temporary tattoo out in the rain, you can wash and the ink will not run.
But when you soak and wash with soap, your body art tattoo is designed to flake off.
How many Body Art Temporary Tattoos can I get out of a sheet?
