Love body art but not ready to commit to a permanent piece? If so, you’ve probably experimented with temporary tattoos, washable works of art that last for days once applied to the skin. While impermanent tattoos have their obvious perks, like low costs, versatility, and, of course, zero commitment, their designs don’t come with the creative freedom or customization characteristic of real tattoos—unless, of course, you make them yourself!
With just a few materials—including special decal paper, a pair of scissors, your computer, and an inkjet printer—you can design, create, and apply any design to your skin. Here, we share temporary tattoo tips and tricks so that you can create the DIY decals of your dreams.
