Live like you’re a rockstar with temporary tattoos! As the summer starts to wind down and parents are getting their kids ready to head back to another school year, people start to think about the seasons getting ready to change and the holidays that will be approaching. One of my favorite holidays is Halloween, which brings me to why I am bringing up temporary tattoos.
In my previous article I shared about one of my favorite rock bands, which is Kiss, and dressing up as them for Halloween for many years. It always did make me feel like I was living like a rockstar. Halloween costumes have really come a long way from those old vinyl pull-on suits and your plastic mask that you could barely breathe through.
To have a great costume back then you needed to either have a great imagination, or like me, a mom who was great at makeup and sewing. The one thing I wished they had back then was temporary tattoos that rocked. I think the only cool temporary tattoos then were the Kiss ones I received in my Kiss Alive 2 album.
Today you can wear temporary tattoos that look so real, one might think you just walked out of the tattoo parlor. Halloween is one of the best ways to showcase that temporary tattoo as you dress up as one of your favorite characters, whether it is a celebrity, a favorite athlete, or the biggest rockstar. Most of these personalities have several tattoos, and this look can be created without going to get permanent ink.
Halloween doesn’t have to be the only time to rock temporary tattoos. Today people will wear them because they like them and because they are not quite ready to lay down the cash for one, or just not sure if they want to wear one permanently. I get asked a lot about of questions about tattoos from people that are sitting on the fence about getting one. The biggest questions I get are: “I don’t like needles, will it hurt?” and “What if I don’t like it?”
I’ll suggest that they wear a temporary tattoo for a bit and see if it’s for them. Some do come back and say YES, ultimately getting a permanent one. Others say it was fun, but not for them. I also see others who hate the needle and just wear temporary ones, allowing them to frequently change what they wear.
Children also love tattoos, but let’s face it, no parent is going to let their child get a permanent ink job done, nor will most shops do it for that matter until they’re a certain age with parent consent. Temporary tattoos can be a party favorite at a child s birthday party. Some advice though, get all the parents’ consent. You don’t want to send a child home with one to an outraged parent. Today they have all kinds of neat ones for kids, from Disney to their favorite superhero. Sometimes letting a child feel a little grown up can be fun. Remember, it’s not permanent and it’s nontoxic.
Here I will share a listing of some of the temporary tattoos you can wear for any occasion. These are all nontoxic and can be worn by anyone. They will usually last three to five days. Some factors that could affect the length that they last are sun, sweat, and how frequently you shower. Removal is very easy with the use of rubbing alcohol, body oil, or olive oil.

The Henna tattoo has been used as far back as Anchient Egypt and were worn by Cleopatra. The original henna tattoos were made out of a flowering shrub and ground into a powder. They were used for many dyeing purposes and are known to have skin healing properties. Today henna is used for many types of celebrations and you will find them being applied at many functions today.
Henna by far has also helped in the popularity of the temporary tattoo.
