The Ultimate Guide to Semi-Permanent Temporary Tattoos

Alice in Wonderland semi-permanent tattoo

Getting a tattoo is a big decision, and sometimes it can even feel a little bit stressful! You're about to make a permanent change to your skin, so it's natural to have doubts while you're making up your mind.

One of the best - and most fun - ways to think through your choices is with our collection of temporary tattoos. This gives you an accurate idea of how a design will look on your skin and lets you really experience how it would feel to live with this design on your skin.

But what if you need more than a few days to decide? That's where our collection of semi-permanent tattoos comes in! These unique long-lasting temporary tattoos are designed to last for much longer on the skin - up to 2 weeks in most cases! This gives you a better sense of how you'll feel about a design so you can feel more confident when you walk into the tattoo studio.

But there are other reasons why our 2-week tattoos are a great choice. In this guide, we'll share everything about our semi-permanent tattoos, so you know how to use them. We hope this post inspires you to try out some designs for yourself!

What is a semi-permanent tattoo?

As the name implies, a semi-permanent tattoo is a type of fake tattoo that is designed to last for a longer period of time on the skin. There are several companies that produce this type of ephemeral tattoo, but ours are unique because they are an eco-friendly alternative.

We create our long-lasting fake tattoos using 100% recyclable and plastic-free materials. The ink is made from a special blend of natural gardenia ink, which is non-toxic and suitable for all skin types. People of all ages can safely enjoy our 2-week tattoos!

Our 2-week tattoos are waterproof, which means you can go about your normal daily activities without having to worry about them smudging or fading. You can even swim with them! Just be sure to avoid using any abrasive soaps or harsh scrubbing in the area where the design is placed.

As the name implies, you can expect to enjoy your long-lasting tattoo for up to 14 days. The secret to the staying power of these tats is in the materials we use!

Most of our designs come in a set of two, so you can apply them to different areas of your body to get a feel for how the design will look in different places. You can also share one with a friend or try out matching tattoos with someone special.

How are 2-week tattoos different from traditional fake tattoos?

Traditional fake tattoos are designed to sit on top of the surface of our skin and typically contain an adhesive that keeps them in place. The ink in our semi-permanent tattoos is designed to sink into the skin, giving them their amazing staying power!

Most people will enjoy the design for up to 2 weeks, but this can vary slightly based on where the design is placed and your lifestyle. For example, if you put the 2-week tattoo on an area of the body that is exposed to the sun, it may start to fade slightly sooner. If you spend a lot of time in the water, you can also expect the design to fade faster.

Many people find that their long-lasting tattoo looks more similar to a real one. This is because the ink actually sinks into the skin rather than sitting on the surface. If you're looking for a truly realistic tattoo experience, our two-week tattoos are the way to go!

One more way that our long-lasting tattoos are different from traditional ones is that you won't see the design immediately! It can take up to 24 hours for the full color of the tattoo to develop, which means you need to plan ahead a little if you want to wear your design to a special event or party!

It's important to note that our tattoos are not designed to be removed early. If you need to remove the tattoo before the 2 weeks is up, you can try gently exfoliating your skin to speed up the fading process.

How to apply our plastic-free semi-permanent tattoos

Our skin-safe semi-permanent tattoos can be applied anywhere on the body. Just remember that they will fade faster in sun-exposed areas!

Here's how to apply them:

  1. Clean the area where you want to apply the tattoo with mild soap and water. You should also exfoliate the area with a gentle facial scrub or loofah. This will help to remove oil, dirt, and dead skin cells that could prevent the tattoo from sticking.
  2. Thoroughly dry your skin before proceeding.
  3. Remove the clear sheet and place the tattoo face down on your skin.
  4. Wet a cloth or sponge with some water and hold it over the back of the 2-week tattoo for 30 seconds.
  5. Gently peel off the paper backing and allow the area to dry. When you first remove the peel, you won't see anything! Over the next 24 hours, the natural pigments will darken and your design will become visible.

That's it! Now you just need to have some patience while the design begins to appear - it's worth the wait, we promise!

Unique ways to use our semi-permanent tattoos

People use sticker tattoos for various reasons. Many people use them to try out a design or experiment with placements before getting inked. Others use them temporarily, with no intention of ever getting inked. Popular reasons for this use include raising awareness for an important cause, getting into the holiday season, completing a costume, or as a sweet surprise for your person.

Our semi-permanent tattoos can fulfill all of these purposes, but for a more extended period of time. But there are other ways to use our 2-week tattoos!

#1. Check for sun exposure

Tattoos placed on sun-exposed areas of the body are prone to fading. Some people are unaware of this and are disappointed when they find their design changing in appearance. Our 2-week tattoos provide the perfect way to test an area of the body for sun exposure.

Place the design on your chosen area and observe how it changes over the two-week period. If it fades significantly, you'll know that the area is quite exposed, and you'll need to be careful when placing a real tattoo there.

#2. Vacation or honeymoon fake tattoo

Want to enjoy the effect of a tattoo while you're on vacation? Our long-lasting tattoos are great for this! Apply your design before you leave and enjoy it for the duration of your trip. No need to make a permanent commitment or take a handful of fake tattoos with you!

Want to surprise your partner on your honeymoon or romantic getaway? Apply one of our romantic 2-week tattoos tattoo somewhere they'll find it and enjoy for the entire time you're away. Our handwritten ‘kiss here’ semi-permanent tattoo would be a great choice for this idea.

These designs would be great for getting into the holiday vibe:

#3. Support a cause or raise awareness

Are you passionate about a cause? Show your support by wearing one of our semi-permanent tattoos. They are the perfect way to start a conversation and raise awareness for an important issue.

Many people use our tattoos to show their support for causes such as cancer research or mental health awareness. For example, May is mental health awareness month in the United States. You could use our semi-colon long-lasting tattoo to show your support all month long - just reapply once it starts to fade!

#4. Motivation to achieve your goals

Are you working towards a certain milestone in your career? Or perhaps you have a fitness goal you'd like to reach this month?
