It’s 2015 and I’m still not over this craze. I recently purchased five more sets of metallic tattoos (a.k.a. flash tatts) online because I’ve used up the two sheets I got in November. I know what you’re thinking! Don’t worry; my own sister called me out on this addiction.
Whether you’re a fellow metallic tatt fan or are about to purchase your first sheet, here’s how to do it right:
1. If you get allergies or irritation, scrub it off immediately, and then apply a soothing lotion.
2. To make the tatt last long, be extra careful with the tattooed area when you shower.
3. The tatt usually fades within 4-6 six days.
4. Warning: Removing the tatt can be very frustrating! Start by soaking a cotton ball in heavy-duty oil-based makeup remover, and then rub off as much metallic residue as you can. Wash the skin with soap and water. When it dries, rub off the remaining metallic residue with your fingers. Apply lotion after.
