Did you know that 78% of people regret at least one of their tattoos? 

At least according to Advance Dermatology.

That's why Temporary Tattoos can be a genius solution.

You just stick them on your skin and they last between 24h and 72h. That's more than enough to know if you'd actually like the look of it. 

They're a fun and risk-free way to test out designs before committing to the real ink.


Risk-Free Design Exploration

Temporary tattoos offer a no-pressure playground for delving into a myriad of designs.

If you're torn between:

  • Different styles
  • Sizes
  • Spots on your body
  • If it's really a good idea

Then slapping on a temporary tattoo lets you see how your selected design fits before making the lifelong leap into permanent ink.

It's a priceless part of the decision-making journey, guaranteeing that the design you settle on is one that brings you joy for years to come.

Cost-Effective Experimentation

A cool temporary tattoo will cost from 5$ to 20$.

This allows you to try huge designs for a very cheap price, or many small designs for an even cheaper price.

The expenses of a permanent tattoo can pile up fast, especially if you're tweaking your design or exploring several options. 

This wallet-friendly strategy is especially attractive to folks who aim to make sure their design perfectly matches their vision before committing to something permanent.

Easy Customization 

Temporary tattoos come in a wide array of designs, making it easy to find one that closely matches your envisioned permanent tattoo.

Additionally, you can customize temporary tattoos or combine multiple designs to create a unique representation of your idea.

You Can Make Them at Home!

You can use the old sharpie + baby powder + hair spay trick for an effect that lasts some hours. Check how to do it here.

You can also do it by printing your desired tattoo on printable tattoo paper, but that's a lot of work. 

Instructions here to the curious folks.

Minimize Regrets

One of the primary concerns with permanent tattoos is the fear of potential regrets.

Temporary tattoos act as a buffer against making impulsive decisions, allowing you to live with the design for a while before making it permanent.

This temporary commitment minimizes the risk of post-tattoo remorse and ensures you are confident and content with your choice.
