I have been having lots of fun experimenting with Flash Tattoos. The ones pictured here are Lulu DK from Bloomingdale’s, but there are other brands that make some great designs as well like Child of Wild and Flash Tattoos. They are super easy to apply, are really fun and kind of sexy.

This delicate little Love is so cute…
Some basic FAQs and How-to’s (compliments of LuluDK):
How do I apply my flash tattoo?
You will be amazed by how quick and easy it is to apply your Flash Tattoo with the help of a little water. For best application, ask a friend to help position your Flash Tattoo so your skin does not twist or stretch. You want to make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of any oils or the tattoo will not adhere. Cut out the tattoo as close to the edge as possible (this is important later when you need to line it up) and remove the clear sheet. Place the tattoo face down on your skin and hold a wet cloth against it for about 30 seconds. Peel the paper aside then pat gently with the wet cloth. Tada! Be sure not to twist or stretch skin until the tattoo has had time to set (at least 10 minutes). Flash Tattoos look best after they have had an hour or two to set into the skin.
How long do they last?
Your Flash Tattoo will last about 4-6 days depending on where they are placed and how well you take care of them. To care for your Flash avoid any soap, sunscreen, lotions or oils near or on your tattoo. These types of oil based substances will begin to degrade the adhesive.
How do I remove it?
To remove your Flash Tattoo simply soak your skin in baby oil, olive oil or coconut oil for one minute then gently scrub off. Repeat as necessary. Apply lotion to moisturize and soothe the skin area.
Sparkle on, ladies!
