Fake Tattoos by Real Artists Shipped with love outta Brooklyn, NY

General Questions 


I can't wait! How do I put it on? This may be the most important Tattly question of all. Just add water of course! We made this handy Application Video to show you how!

How long do Tattlys last? Most Tattlys last at least 2 – 4 days. Some of the ones with intricate, fine lines may wear off a bit sooner. They are waterproof and are fine in the shower and the swimming pool — in fact, they will last longer if you keep it clean by washing the area gently. Don’t forget to place the Tattly on an oil-free skin surface!

Ok, I love this tattoo but how do I get it off? We recommend cellophane or scotch tape to remove Tattly. We’ve also found that putting on a bit of baby oil or lotion right before hopping into the shower works well, too! You can watch our removal video to see these recommended methods in action.

I love them but are they safe? Tattly requested that Intertek provide a statement of compliance for the Tattly temporary tattoo as described as Regular, Glitter and Glow products to determine the safe use of the product for its intended use and that it meets the FDA regulations for cosmetic applications. FDA regulates the pigment components of cosmetic applications. Intertek has reviewed all of the regulatory information, and confirms that the Tattly temporary tattoo formulation including pigment is safe for the intended use in a temporary tattoo cosmetic application. Metallic Tattly are made in China; we're working hard to move production to the US.

Where do all of these awesome designs come from? We license our designs from spectacular artists and designers worldwide. Every time we sell a Tattly with their design, they get a cut of the sale. They deserve it, no?

I have a great idea for a Tattly! Can I send it to you? That is awesome! Unfortunately, we are not currently seeking new artists to join our roster. Perhaps you might be interested in making a custom order?

Shipping and Delivery


How much is shipping? USA: No matter where you are in the US, shipping is $3.00 for USPS First Class Mail for orders placed online.

Everywhere else! Shipping is calculated at checkout.

A note for international customers: Occasionally overseas shipments will take a longer time due to the delivery country’s customs. Each customs office is different and Tattly is not responsible for any fees or tariffs. 

Can I expedite my order? For domestic orders we offer UPS Priority shipping (2–3 business days) - rates are calculated at checkout. 

For international orders we offer USPS Priority and DHL Express shipping (2–3 business days) - rates are calculated at checkout. Please note shipping times are estimates. We cannot guarantee delivery times due to inclement weather, customs, and other factors outside the control of Tattly.

I placed an order! When will I get it?
Yay! Once an order is placed, we ship it from our Brooklyn office as soon as possible. It may take up to 3 business days. For domestic orders, USPS delivers shipments in 3-6 business days. For international orders, USPS shipments may take up to 15-21 business days.

I haven’t received my order yet. What’s going on? If you are in the US and it’s been over 10 business days since you placed your order, or if you are overseas and it’s been over 20 business days since you placed your order, please let us know by emailing us with your name and order number. Thanks for your patience! A note for international customers: Occasionally overseas shipments will take a longer time due to the delivery country’s customs. Each customs office is different and Tattly is not responsible for any fees or tariffs.

Wait a second, didn't you use to offer free shipping? For 4 years, we proudly covered the costs for US shipping and $2 for international. While we wish we could continue this method, our growing business has started to include a low-rate shipping fee for each order as of July 2015. We hope you understand and appreciate the support! We suggest stocking up to sleeve up and getting free shipping within the United States when you place an order of $35 or more!
