Are they safe and good quality?
Pepper Ink uses safe tattoo transfer papers compliant with Australian Standards AS/NZS ISO 8124.3:2003, and specially developed high-tech digital printing technology to produce high image quality and a long-lasting transfer. So yep and yep.
How are my temporary tattoos packaged?
All the items in your order will be combined in a single eco-friendly pack. If you'd like individual packaging for each item, just leave us a note at checkout.
What is Liquiskin® ?
Liquiskin® Tattoo Shine Remover takes away the shiny look and adds a second skin film layer over your tattoo to make it look better and last longer! You can add Liquiskin® to your order by purchasing a Liquiskin® sachet in the online store. Your tattoo will look great without it; but for special events, photoshoots, or just if you want your tattoo to look as ace as possible, we recommend Liquiskin® . Liquiskin® contains Ethyl Cellulose and Castor Oil, do not apply to sensitive skin or near eyes. Apply a light layer over your tattoo design once it has dried on the skin, and admire the aceness!
How do I apply my designs?
Applying Pepper Ink tattoos is super simple.
1.Make sure your skin is clean and dry. Peel off the transparent backing and place design side down on your skin.
2.Hold a wet cloth on the backing paper for 30 seconds. Try not to rush. Peel off paper backing and let your tattoo dry.
3. If you have liquiskin, brush lightly over the design once it’s dry and wait 10 seconds. Admire the aceness!
How long will it last?
Your Pepper Ink temporary tattoo will last 2-5 days without an application of Liquiskin®, up to 10 days with Liquiskin®. The lifetime of your tattoo also depends on placement and what you get up to every day, avoid hot water as it can melt the adhesive and shorten the life of your design.
I love it but how can I get it off?
To remove your Pepper Ink temporary tattoo, try one of these:
* take a strip of sticky tape and place over the edge of your tattoo, rub and peel it away. Tattoos which have been on a while or have liquiskin will need more tape to fully remove.
* soak a little in baby oil or eucalyptus oil diluted in water, and wash off; or wipe with an alcohol swab.
* use good ol’ soap and scrubbing brush in the shower, working from the edges in.
