Place the tattoo face down on the area of skin where the tattoo is desired. Ensure it is the correct way up. Apply even pressure to the tattoo paper backing using a wet cloth or sponge. Wait about a minimum of 60 seconds and then remove the cloth and gently slide off the paper.
How long they last:
Depending on your skin type, the location of the tattoo and the rubbing of clothes temporary tattoos last between two days and two weeks. On average, count on 3 to 7 days that a temporary tattoo will stay on your skin.
Use a soft brush, such as a makeup brush, to gently apply a thin layer of talc or baby powder to the surface of the tattoo. Repeat this step once a day for as long as you have the temporary tattoo.
Cover your tattoo with petroleum jelly, which can act as a sealant. Though most people consider petroleum jelly a moisturizer, it actually works by sealing the moisture into your skin, almost like a piece of plastic. Clear nail polish will have the same sealing effect as the petroleum jelly, but it won't be as messy, since it will dry on your skin.
