Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Why should I buy my custom temporary tattoos from StickerYou instead of making my own at home?
A: There are a few reasons we don’t recommend you make your own temporary tattoos at home .The ink your printer takes at home may not be the best quality or the right type to create temporary tattoos, so colours and lines may not be reproduced accurately. Custom fake tattoos also need to be printed on custom temporary tattoo transfer paper, which not all printers are calibrated to print on which could result in some serious splotchy temporary tattoos. Printers, inks, and special tattoo paper can add up quick, so getting high quality custom temporary tattoos from StickerYou is more cost effective in the long run. Our online image editor also makes it super easy to create gradients and design your own temporary tattoo the way you want to - no extra graphic design courses needed!

Beautifully dyed and printed, applies easily and looks great, but leaves a very sticky residue on the skin that’s hard to wash off. Recommend to cut around the image before applying to skin to minimize residue.
