Tattoo Application & Removal

Pickatat Temporary Tattoos are easy to put on and remove. 

To Apply:

1. Peel off the clear plastic film on the front of your Pickatat temporary tattoo. 

2. Pick a desired location on your skin for your Pickatat placement and place the temporary tattoo image side down on your skin. 

3. Using either a wet cloth, paper towel, or sponge, wet the back side of the Pickatat.(More water is better.)

4. Pickatats will transfer to your skin once thoroughly wet and the paper backing will slide right off. This could take from 10-30 seconds. It's best not to rush this process. 


To Remove Temporary Tattoos:

Pickatat temporary tattoos last 3-5 days. However, if you would prefer to remove them sooner please use one of the following: 

1. Baby oil

2. Rubbing alcohol

3. Cooking oil

Let the oil or rubbing alcohol break down the adhesive for 30 seconds or more and then lightly rub off with a soft towel, tissue, or cotton ball. Do not use abrasives, chemicals, or scrubbing to attempt to remove. Because temporary tattoos are waterproof, scrubbing with soap & water is highly ineffective and could lead to serious skin irritation; even bleeding.
