How to apply temporary tattoo sleeves

Now that you’ve created your sleeve temporary tattoos, here are 5 quick steps to make your application looks seamless and realistic:

  1. Shave the area you’re applying the tattoo to
  2. Prior to application, clean the area with rubbing alcohol and a cotton ball - allow to dry
  3. Wet your sponge (damp, not soaked)
  4. Peel the plastic cover off your temporary tattoo and apply face down, place your damp sponge on top, and hold for approx. 30 seconds
  5. Once applied, dust the area with baby powder or translucent setting powder for a natural, skin-like finish (that also photographs well!)
