From Ötzi the Iceman to Gucci Mane’s ice cone face tat, tattooing has been a cultural practice for thousands of years. Whether it’s in commemoration or self expression, skin art can be a big decision! Here at Adafruit we’re definitely not afraid of permanence, but needles can be pretty scary!
Which is why we love this Blinka the CircuitPython Temporary Tattoo – this safe, non-permanent, easily removable tattoo is vibrant, nicely sized, and looks great on everybody. We slapped one on, and we’re pleased to report the tattoo lasted a week while looking good.
Make sure your skin is nice and clean, free of oil and makeup
Remove the clear protective top sheet.
Press tattoo firmly on dry skin with design facing down.
Hold a wet cloth against the back of the tattoo. Press down and make sure to wet thoroughly.
Wait 30 seconds. Revel in the excitement of having the cutest, friendliest CircuitPython on your arm, leg, whatever. Remove the paper backing.
