Orders & product information:

Where is my order?

Are you staring at the letterbox? Avidly watching for the little red van? Don’t worry we all get excited when new things are coming. Your new temporary tattoo’s and apparel are made to order, not just picked off a shelf and most orders will be dispatched within 1-2 working days; the rest is down to the postman/delivery service and that is out of our control unfortunately.

What if I don't see a design I like? Will you design something for me?

Yes, of course, we have many design options available and we are more than happy to put together a custom design for you, simply contact us through our custom design page and we can get the wheels turning on your tattoo journey.
You can also send us your own design which we will turn into a tattoo for you, please just take note of the artwork guidelines below.

What is the largest size tattoo I can have?

While we are limited to reproducing images to a maximum size of A4 (29.7x21cm) it is possible to panel these images to create a larger tattoo, please get in touch with us to discuss your requirements.

How long will my tattoo last

Inkstant tattoos will last between 1-5 days, this depends on the skin surface (before placement), skin location, clothing contact etc; in some cases tattoos may last longer.

How safe are they?

Very safe. Depending on the production process they are FDA or EN71 EC approved, the only thing that touches your skin is a medical grade adhesive. However, Inkstant Tattoo’s are not recommended for those with sensitive skin or under 3’s. If you react in any way simply remove your tattoo with alcohol based remover or baby oil, customers take responsibility for product use. Do not place Inkstant tattoos near the eyes or mouth.

My tattoo looks shiny and wrinkly, what can I do?

Wipe away the release gel residue as soon as you have applied the tattoo, this will also prevent it becoming dirty later. Once fully dry you can apply a cosmetic finishing powder or setting spray to remove excess shine. We also suggest avoiding joints where the skin will stretch and move. When dry your Inkstant tattoo will look like a real tattoo and blends perfectly with your skin..

My tattoo looks dirty, what can I do?

As you’re essentially wearing fresh glue on your skin, temporary tattoos can sometimes pick up dust from your surroundings or fluff from your clothing simply Wash it with soap. Carefully trim as much of the background away as possible before you apply your Inkstant Tattoo. Avoid contact with anything for the first few hours, dry thoroughly after applying to prevent damage to the Inkstant Tattoo whilst it dries completely, and if you need to, just wash them.

How do I remove them?

Your Inkstant Tattoo can easily be removed with alcohol based remover or baby oil. Simply apply some to the area where your Inkstant Tattoo is and allow to penetrate into the tattoo, after a short while they simply rub off.

What’s so different about these Tattoo’s?

Our Tattoo’s are printed using different methods and papers compared to the traditional bubblegum tattoo’s, using this process and using white ink lets us create realistic and colourful temporary tattoos. These are also completely waterproof so you can still hop in the shower with them, just avoid aggressively drying the area and using any oil based moisturiser on the area.


Inkstant Tattoo’s meet all EU, US and international regulatory requirements and are safe for all to use, we do not recommend usage on children under the age of 3 and highly discourage application to areas with broken or inflamed skin. Customers hold responsibility for following the instructions provided and the correct application of the tattoo.
