My Experience with Flash Tattoos Jewelry Inspired Temporary Tattoos:
I love these Flash tattoos. They are so easy to use and are long-lasting. They are that perfect accessory to wear instead of chunky jewelry (which makes packing for vacation whole lot simpler) and are very eye-catching. You have the flexibility to use them however and wherever you want and also can alter the size and shape of them by cutting them into chunks or strips.
Application: These are so easy to apply and literally takes less than 5 seconds. You can even apply them on the go. You just peel the transparent plastic cover over it. Place the tattoo when desired design down and wet the black of the paper with a damp sponge or plain wet finger till it is soaked but not dripping. You will see the imprint of the tattoo being transferred on the skin. Once the paper is fully wet simple peel and you are done.On my recent beach vacation, I rocked these and loved how they were budge proof even when I went in the ocean.
These flash tattoos are long-wearing. They lasted a week on me and took minimal care. I was careful not to rub the area where these were applied too vigorously with soap or loofah and only washed then with water. The vibrancy of the metallic shine does diminish but not drastically.You do have to take care not to use any oil based product near the area where this is applied as it will break down the tattoo, that includes any oil-based cream or sunscreen.
If you flash tattoo has lost its shine or you simply don’t want it on your skin any longer, removal is so easy too. Rub a little bit of olive oil or coconut oil on the tattoo for a minute. Then scrub off with a loofah and its gone. It does come off in chunks so do it in the shower to avoid making a mess.Overall, I love this concept and this product. I highly recommend them.
