Temporary tattoos have become quite famous in such a short time as they are affordable, pain less & above all they can be removed any time & that part of your body is again ready for a sizzling hot new Tattoo!!
Conventional Temporary tattoos, which were first made popular as inserts in regular bubble gums, were poor quality transfers, often resulted in hazy designs and could easily be washed or rubbed off from body. Modern temporary transfer body tattoos are made of non toxic & high quality ink and glue, and last much longer than conventional temporary tattoos. In this process, the body tattoo is applied to the outer surface of the skin and stays until such time as the image fades away itself (typically after 3-5 days) or is removed using alcohol or any such remover.while most temporary body tattoos are created commercially for promotions, advertising or as novelty items ( giveaways ) , the process of creating it has been adapted to the fine art of lithography as well.
Usually Temporary transfer body tattoos consist of five main elements: the front of the sheet of paper, the back of the sheet of paper, inks, glue and a protective plastic sheet over tattoo. the front of the sheet is covered with a special coating upon which the tattoo image is printed with special non toxic inks. A layer of special non toxic glue is then applied on top of the image. A thin, transparent plastic sheet is placed over the front of the sheet to protect the image and glue layer. the back of the sheet is left untreated and usually has a list of ingredients and/ or instructions to use printed on its backside.Water Transfer ( temporary ) tattoos are usually applied by removing the plastic sheet, placing the image face down against the skin and wetting the backing by putting water ( directly or indirectly ) thoroughly. the backing can then be carefully removed, leaving the image in place.
