Inkjet tattoo paper

164_1_zoom_2

Tattoo yourself – or the kids – with no pain and the added bonus of being able to scrub it off with hot soapy water. These decal papers enable you to use your inkjet printer to print ‘tattoos’ that look just like the real thing – from your own customised designs. They take minutes to do and, if left unscrubbed, will last up to a week. Why not ring the changes and create different tattoos for different occasions?

The tattoo sheets come in twos: one printable A4 sheet and one adhesive film. The process is quick and easy as well as painless (even if you have sensitive skin, as the ‘tattoos’ are water-based and non-toxic.) See the step-by-step guide for precise directions or download the instructions sheet. First print your tattoo onto the printable sheet (remembering to reverse your image/text – your computer will enable you to do this). Then transfer the image onto the adhesive sheet and apply it to the skin. Peel off the adhesive film – and it’s done.

I think I will make some custom tattoos for Ella’s upcoming birthday party. Wheeee!

Here’s a US reseller.

(thank you jon!)

  2. Haha, was es doch ned alles git…
    Mer chan ja au neustens sini Auge Tätowiere lah..

  3. We have had much interest in our inkjet tattoo paper, the above photo was taken by use to show how to use it. I just wanted to mention that we now have Laser tattoo paper which has just been manufactured. it is very very thin and easy to apply. You use it in the same way as the inkjet version. The difference is that it is thinner than the inkjet and you have to use it in a laser printer.
    Thanks

  4. Yea!!
    and there was much rejoicing

  5. Cool idea.
    Though temporary tatoos has to be printed with FDA compliant inks i.e. non-toxic and hypoallergenic cosmetic inks… Is there any issue to apply a handmade tatoo printed with regular inkjet/laserjet ink directly onto the skin ?

  6. Wonderful idea, but FYI this type of paper doesn’t work with darker skin. The adhesive paper doesn’t “blend” into the skin like the picture above.

  7. Nice site, I have added it to my favourites, greetings

  8. I have used this paper and it works fine on my skin but created an instant allergic reaction on my daughter skin (she’s prone to exczema so sensitive skin). I’m sure it’s nothing to do with the paper but the ink but it just needs to be pointed out. The paper eventually wrinkles quite a lot (2nd skin effect)

  9. Pretty interesting, though I prefer the real deal… :)

  10. Thats a cool design! Have you gotten on the TattoosOn the tattoo social network yet. We’re recruiting experts in the industry. Some great tattoo design & tattoo artists can be found here. It’s the fastest growing tattoo website!

  11. Love this! What a cool idea. I linked to this post on my blog

    Happy Holidays

  12. Don’t expect an ink Transfer like you get from store bought temporary tattoos. This product transfers a film with the image on the underside. Disappointing…..

  13. Yeah… I’m curious to see what the best option is to match (or exceed) the store bought temporary tattoo quality. Let me know if you know.

  14. Its like you read my thoughts! You appear to grasp a lot about
    this, like you wrote the ebook in it or something.
    I think that you just can do with some p.c. to force the message home a little bit, but other than that, this
    is wonderful blog. An excellent read. I’ll definitely be back.
