Tatt Me Temporary tattoos are fast and easy to apply; all you need is water. Your skin should be clean, dry and free of lotion, oils and makeup. First, remove the clear, protective top sheet. Then, press the tattoo firmly onto your skin with the design facing down. Hold a wet cloth against the back of the tattoo, press down and make sure to wet it thoroughly. Wait 30 seconds and slowly peel off the paper backing. Gently rinse the image with water for the best results and allow the temporary tattoo to dry before touching or covering with clothing. Every Tatt Me Temporary Tattoo has these application instructions printed on the back.
