General Questions

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!

Most Tattly last about 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!

We recommend using Scotch® tape or rubbing alcohol to remove your Tattly. We’ve also found that putting on a bit of baby oil or lotion right before hopping into a shower works well, too! You can watch our removal video to see these recommended methods in action.

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.

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?

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?

Tattly OFF

Tattly OFF

The easiest way to remove your Tattly is buy using regular household tape.
Simply take a strip of tape and stick it over the edge of your tattoo. Rub it a little and peel it away. The longer the tattoo has been on the more tape you will need to fully remove it.

An alternative way to remove your tattoo is with soap and water. It will take a bit of rubbing but it will come right off.
