More About Temporary Tattoos
Thinking of getting a tattoo sleeve but want to explore what it could look like before committing?
Take your idea for a test drive by making your own temporary tattoo sleeve kit with StickerYou.
Our temporary sleeve tattoos are waterproof and last up to 5 days with good care. Plenty of time to figure out if you should commit to the look or not! They are also a great alternative to cloth-based sleeves which don’t sit flush on your skin or provide an accurate representation of what your final tattoo could look like.
To create your temporary tattoo sleeve, simply upload a full-page design to get a classic, full-arm sleeve look. Our tattoos print lush and clear, so your designs really pop when you apply them.
If you’re a fan of the modern sticker sleeve look, you can get that out here too. Create a temporary tattoo page with the different designs you want for our sticker sleeve and you’re good to go!
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. You also never know what exactly is in the ink you are applying on your skin - many printer inks can have chemicals and substances that may cause skin reactions or burns.
Custom fake tattoos also need to be printed on custom temporary tattoo transfer paper, which not all printers are calibrated to print. This could result in some seriously 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 Sticker Maker
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!
Q: I want personalized temporary tattoos for a special event, but are they safe to apply on children?
A: Yes for sure! Our custom temporary tattoos are printed with non-toxic inks making them fun and safe for both kids’ and parties. However, we recommend you don't apply them to any parts of your skin that are sensitive, just to play it safe.
Q: How long will my temporary tattoos last?
A: They generally last in good condition for 2-3 days. Want to remove them sooner? Use a cotton ball or similar with baby oil or rubbing alcohol and they will be removed pretty easily, unlike real tattoos!
Q: I’m looking for just 1 temporary tattoo, is this possible?
A: If you select our standard custom temporary tattoos, when you’re adding it to your cart you can select just 1. If you are looking for our speciality temporary tattoos with white ink, glow in the dark, or glitter, there will be a minimum order requirement. If you contact firstname.lastname@example.org
a representative will be able to help you with your order.
Q: I customized a bunch of temporary tattoos, now what am I going to do with them all?
A: Temporary tattoos that you can customize yourself can serve many purposes in a contemporary society. We don’t have the science to back it up, but we’re 99.9% certain that temporary tattoos liven up every party. They also make for super cool and effective handouts for businesses. You can also personalize temporary tattoos with things like phone numbers or addresses to keep groups of kids safe on class field trips or squads of bridesmaids at bachelorette parties. High quality temporary tattoos are also finding themselves being used in the craft world, as they can be applied to glass to create interesting votives, centrepieces, or home and party decor. You can get that "etched" look on your glasses or mugs, without breaking the bank!
Q: How long are my high quality temporary tattoos going to last when I apply them?
A: Yes it is! Our high quality temporary tattoo ink can last on skin for a week, or longer, depending on how you take care of them.
If you'd like your temporary tattoo to last as long as possible, it's best to avoid direct abrasion on the areas that they are applied. This will ensure they don't fade or peel due to scrubbing/friction. Alongside this, when applying your custom temporary tattoos, avoid putting them on areas that have a lot of bending/creasing (ie. elbow creases, fingers, etc).
Q: Are my custom tattoos going to take a long time to apply?
A: If you have a spare 10-15 seconds, you have enough time to apply a temporary tattoo! Our personalized tattoos are extremely easy to apply. All you need to do is peel off the plastic protective coating on the top of the temporary tattoo. After this, lay the tattoo (image area down) on the area you'd like to apply. Wet the back portion of the tattoo, transferring the image onto your skin. Apply light pressure for a few seconds, then carefully peel off the backing, revealing your new bright and vivid temporary tattoo!
Q: Before I cover my body in my custom temporary tattoos how easy are they remove?
A: Very easy. Temporary tattoos can be removed immediately with a cotton swab dipped in baby oil or rubbing alcohol. They’ll also come off over time with soap and water.
Q: Are temporary tattoos easy to customize?
A: With StickerYou’s award-winning temporary tattoo maker, we’ve made customizing your own high quality temporary tattoos super easy.

Q: How do I put my temporary tattoo on?
A: Make sure your temporary tattoo is cut down as close to the artwork as you can get it. Remove the plastic layer and place it face-down on your skin.
