Facts and Fiction about Temporary Tattoos

Common sense says that a person who gets art on their body will not always want it there.

This has raised a number of questions, and some “tattoo artists” have responded by guaranteeing consumers a tattoo that will not wash off today or tomorrow, but will fade away in a month or a year.

It should be understood that there is no such thing as a true temporary tattoo. Unless long-term surgery is performed, once ink has penetrated the skin, it will remain there indefinitely. Anyone who tells you differently is a liar.

You can have temporary tattoos that will fade away fast. However, this is only possible if the sketching is done on the skin’s top layer. If you scrub hard enough, it will come off in one piece, but if you don’t, it will come off in pieces.

This is the type of body art you choose if you only want a tattoo for one occasion. It isn’t a tattoo in the traditional sense.

A tattoo occurs when ink is applied beneath the epidermis, and if you scrub hard enough to remove it, you’ll end up in the emergency department.

Consider your options carefully before beautifying your flesh with body art. It may appear to be amazing, but you must be aware of what you are purchasing.

Walk out of the shop if someone assures you that the tattoo will only fade. There is no middle ground between body art that can be washed off in one go and a tattoo that will be there unless you have it removed by a professional.
