Public events such as Carnivals, birthday parties, or amusement parks sometimes have booths where artists create bedazzling temporary tattoo designs much like Shimmer Body Art. These booths usually offer an array of options including cartoon characters, symbols, and flowers. Depending on what you like, you can choose a design and have it applied on an area of your body that would like to show off. After application, it’s bold in colors and, in some cases, sparkly due to the addition of glitter. Often the end result is great but usually only lasts a week. There are a few things you can try to make those temporary tattoos last as long as possible.
First, before getting a temporary tattoo try exfoliating the area or shaving the area where you want the tattoo so the skin is smooth and soft. After getting the temporary tattoo, in order to help preserve the tattoo, try to avoid washing the immediate area. Instead, wash around the body art to avoid accidentally washing parts of it off. Finally, add baby powder to your tattoo after application to help soak up any natural oils produced by your skin.
Avoid application of the tattoo in areas that may be often exposed to water. For example, the underside of your forearm may be better spot than your hands because you often need to wash your hands throughout the day. If staying away from water is un-avoidable applying a petroleum jelly before any contact with water may be helpful as it helps water molecules roll off that area of your skin.
While a temporary tattoo will never become permanent taking a few of these steps will help prolong the time your tattoo is fully vibrant and visible.
