Top 5 Reasons to Get a Temporary Tattoo

September 03, 2018 2 min read

If you’re reading this post, you might be wondering--why should I get a semi-permanent tattoo instead of a real one? Why get one at all? Well, there are plenty of reasons why people choose to get a tattoo, whether temporary or permanent. It all depends on your lifestyle, beliefs, and artistic preferences. Below, in no particular order, are our top 5 reasons why you may want to consider getting a semi-permanent tattoo.

1. Minimal commitment. This is the biggest and most obvious reason why people choose to get a temporary tattoo. Our tattoos last approximately two weeks, so if you change your mind or get tired of it, there’s no need to worry. While it is possible to remove permanent tattoos, the procedure can be painful, costly, and leave scarring.

2. Test-run. On a similar vein, temporary tattoos are a great way to test out the design, size and placement of a permanent tattoo, if you are considering getting one. You can essentially play around with it for as long as you’d like, until you’re totally ready to commit to the real deal.

3. Accentuate outfits and costumes
. Temporary tattoos are a fun and creative way to accessorize outfits for particular seasons or events. For some inspiration, check out our post on Temporary Tattoos as Jewelry. They can also be a perfect addition to your Halloween or cosplay costume, so long as you don’t mind wearing them for a couple weeks after.


4. Safety
. As we all know, getting a tattoo is a painful process. It can also be dangerous if the equipment isn’t properly sterilized. With our all-natural ink, you don’t have to worry about any toxins leaking into your bloodstream.

    5. Prank a family member. If you have conservative parents or relatives with a good sense of humor, this is a great prank for you. Just show them your new temporary tattoo and pretend it’s real--they may be upset at first, but they’ll be sure to have a good laugh, or at least a huge sigh of relief, when they find out it’s fake.
