If you love the cool and exotic look of tattoos but aren’t sure you are ready to have a permanent symbol inked into your skin, then applying a custom temporary tattoo might be a viable option for you to consider.
These days it seems as if virtually everyone has some kind of tattoo from the smallest ankle rose to the full body tattoo that those brave enough to have done sport on their skin.
Temporary tattoos are available in a font of colors and eclectic designs and look as authentic as many that are permanent and last for a lifetime. The most exciting aspect is that these temporary custom tattoos can be done at home and you can apply them yourself saving tons of cash as well.
If you opt for a temporary design be aware that the smaller ones look more like a professional tattoo than the larger designs. The materials needed for a home applied temporary tattoo can be found at your local drugstore or from online dealers.You will need a sharp eyeliner pencil to achieve the best results. If you want a more vibrant effect a jet black eyeliner will achieve more vivid results than a colored pencil will.
It is smart to practice drawing your symbol on paper first at least two times before drawing the tattoo onto your skin. It bears noting that liquid eyeliner isn’t a good choice and doesn’t apply as smoothly as pencils do. After you “tattoo” your skin with a temporary tattoo spray it with hairspray to help set it into place. If you simply aren’t very good at sketching you can also use pre-made stencils to achieve a nice tattoo effect as well.
There are many temporary tat sites online where you can even download designs right from your computer without leaving the comfort of your home. You can buy kits to do the tattoo drawing yourself, or buy them pre-drawn in more choices than you can imagine. Temporary tattoos are a very unique way to show off your own personal style and distinction yet without the fear of being stuck with your design choice for a lifetime. And as mentioned, it is extremely affordable and a nice option for people of all cultures and social status.
