Is putting on a bunch of temporary tattoos too messy for Halloween?

Never was into tattoos, so looking like a tattoo fan sounds like one idea for Halloween, if the temporary ones are easy to take off for the next day. Or, does it get into the clothes?

    I have seen a wide variety of the wet and press on tattoos it takes a little practise but they can look like real tattoos. I am sure different brands work differently. Henna tattoos stay on for awhile longer whereas the wet and press on stay on until they are worn off or taken off with alcohol and some rubbing. Be careful where you put them if you want to remove them because they take a little effort to remove and a sensitive area is unpleasant to remove it from. I use to do plenty on the kids. The glitter rhinestone ones often do not usually stay on very good and may require a better glue than they come with. I am sure one can use the super glue to attach these better to the skin but it will take awhile for them to come off because the skin will have to be shed or pulled off with it. What determines how a tatoo affects the skin and how long it stays is how it is applied and what it is made of. The plastic wet and press ones do not tend to have colors come off on clothing. I am sure they have information on the internet about tatoos. I knew a beautiful Asian woman who use to come in with these incredible wet and press on tatoos over her very nice chest that looked real but as every few weeks they would change it was obvious they were temporary. The wet and press ones I put on the kids stay on pretty good for about a week then begin wearing off but to get them off faster for school their mother takes alcohol and rubs enough that the kid got tired of the tatoos and no longer want them unless they are on the shoulder where they can be hidden by a sleeve.
    I would suggest you practise awhile before Halloween as to applying the temporary tattoos so that you can do a good job on Halloween. Often the dollar stores have lots of smaller ones and various sizes to practise with. Just put them where you can cover them or easily remove them. Start out small and build up. The ones I buy come in sheets and I cut out what I want to put on. Once you begin to apply it is difficult to fix them so begin with some inexpensive ones for practising if you intend to go on to the really nice bigger ones that can be purchased at various places and probably on the internet.


    no they won’t come off on clothesjust make sure you are really careful while putting them on so that they come out looking really sleek!
    i love trick-or-treating and i can’t wait!

    It don’t get on your clothes unless you put you clothes on the tattoo too fast, when it not yet fully dry.
    Nothing is too small or too big for Halloween, it all about making fun!

  • ?????Baby Animal????? says:

    If you want to take a temporary tattoo off just use
    some rubbing alcohol and it will come right off..

  • sara wister says:

    my daughter dose this all the time with her friends. The tattos will only stay on for a day or so because if you take a shower or scrub it off, they will come off easyly

  • Kat!epoo says:

    They won’t come of the next day. It will take a couple days, unless you scrub really really hard and leave red spots, or use rubbing alchol, they may come off. No, they won’t get on your clothes, unless you put them on your clothes. I’d say a bunch of temporary tattoos is too messy, unless your gonna be the tattoo man Lol JUST KIDDING, halloween is the time to be messy and look scary, have lots of fun!!

    Some brands adhere better than others. I think rubbing alcohol takes them all of pretty good. You might not want to put them in places that are very hairy (like maybe your arms or legs) because they get stuck in the hair and that makes them pretty hard to remove.

    Check out these tattoo sleeves that you can buy. I saw them at Wal-Mart as well next Halloween. Less mess, less hassle.

  • cake frost says:

    do it, that would look so hot! I have a large one in my torso all color 🙂

  • lt_gunz says:

    You can even buy nylon sleeves that have a bunch of tattoo designs on them, or a t-shirt even. I picked some up at Walmart last year, but didn’t end up using them. They were just funny. Haha!

    But yea, temporary tattoos are fairly easy to take off. Use hydrogen peroxide, rubbing alcohol, or baby oil when you want to take them off. You can also get airbrush tattoos if there’s someone in your area who does them. They don’t tend to crack like the rub-on kind, and are super easy to take off as well.
