This set comes with two Banana Slug temporary tattoos, perfect for any naturalist (young or old), or lover of nature illustrations and tattoos or for any University of California Santa Cruz students and alums.
The banana slug temporary tattoos are approximately .75 x 4 in.
These tattoos are made from my original watercolor illustrations inspired by this slimy resident of the redwood forests of California.
These temporary tattoos last between 1-4 days depending on placement, and are perfect to wear on your next hiking trip in the redwood forests of California!
Packaging is made from recycled materials and includes fun facts about this native California species, as well as instructions for tattoo application.
"Look at the bark of a redwood, and you see moss. If you peer beneath the bits and pieces of the moss, you'll see toads, small insects, a whole host of life that prospers in that miniature environment. A lumberman will look at a forest and see so many board feet of lumber. I see a living city." – Sylvia Earle

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 the area where you want it. Cover with a wet washcloth for 15-30 seconds and then slowly remove the backing. To remove the tattoo, use baby oil, rubbing alcohol, or a warm washcloth 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.
