How to apply/remove tattoo: Wash tattoo area. Remove clear plastic (make sure to take it off in one piece) and place the tattoo face down on area where you want it. Cover with wet wash cloth for 15-30 seconds and then slowly remove the backing. To remove tattoo, use baby oil, rubbing alcohol, or a warm wash cloth and soap. Please note that if the tattoos become wet before removing the clear plastic and applying, they will no longer work.
*Tips for wearing the tattoos* -Practice makes perfect! Plan out your tattoo placement before removing the clear layer of plastic to make sure things look just right. -Put them on after a shower! The less you get your tattoo wet, the longer it will last. -Place your tattoo on a smooth area of skin that doesn’t encounter a lot of movement or rubbing.
