Temporary Tattoos Tutorial

Hey everybody!
If you ever thought about doing a tattoo, but you don’t really want it to be something permanent, this is the perfect tutorial for you!
I’m going to show you how to do temporary tattoos. They’re fun, quick and easy to do! 

So first of, what do you need?

Pencil (3B/4B/5B/6B), scissor, tracing paper;

Wet cloth, talcum powder, eyeliner, makeup brush, ethyl alcohol, cotton pads and liquid bandage spray (waterproof). 

First you’ll need a drawing or word/phrase. In this case, I’ll be drawing the Deathly Hallows sign from Harry Potter. Draw it on the tracing paper (making sure it’s the size you want) and cut it.

Scrub your skin with ethyl alcohol where you’ll be doing your tattoo and put the tracing paper over it (with the drawing facing down).


With the wet cloth, pressure the drawing against the skin. Remove the tracing paper and you should have an outline of the drawing on your skin.


Draw the tattoo with eyeliner. Wait a few seconds, then put a bit a talcum powder over the drawing and spread it around with the brush.


Again, wait a few seconds and then spray the drawing with the liquid bandage spray. Make sure it covers the entire area of the tattoo and let it dry. As you can see it is waterproof!


Done! Try not to rub it and it should last 3/4 days.

Have fun!
