How to make custom temporary tattoos in South Africa 

As we enter an era where body art is becoming more mainstream, temporary tattoos have gained significant popularity.
But sometimes, finding the perfect design can be difficult.
That’s where custom temporary tattoos come in – you can create a design that suits your personality and interests.
Here’s how to make them:

Step 1: Gather Your Supplies.

You’ll need a few supplies before embarking on this DIY project.
Gather all of the supplies below:

- Tracing paper
- Pen
- Scissors
- Blank tattoo paper
- Computer with a printer
- Printer
- Lotion

Step 2: Create Your Design.

You can use any software that allows you to create a design for your tattoo, but for best results, use software created for designing (e.g., Photoshop or GIMP).
If you aren’t comfortable using software, drawing a design by hand is just as great.
Either way, ensure that your design fits your imaging software’s printable area.

Step 3: Print Your Design.

Once you’ve created and saved your design, it’s time to print.
Flip horizontally the design so that it appears in the right orientation when applied onto the skin.
Load your blank tattoo paper into your printer according to the instructions that came with the paper, and print the design.
Trim any excess paper around the edges of the design.
Ensure that there is no white border around the design.

Step 4: Apply Adhesive To The Paper.

Remove the protective sheet from the tattoo paper and position it after applying lotion or rubbing-alcohol onto the skin.
Hold the paper in place for 5 to 15 minutes to ensure the adhesive sets on the skin.

Step 5: Apply Your Tattoo.

Once the adhesive sets, apply a damp cloth carefully to the tattoo paper’s backside, ensuring it covers the whole design.
You should do this for at least 30 seconds, not forgetting edges, as it ensures the tattoo gets wet enough to transfer correctly.
Gently pull the paper away from the skin, starting at one corner.
Once the tattoo has transferred to the skin, the design may take 30 minutes to dry fully.
Wait for 24 hours before taking a bath, showering, or otherwise wetting the tattooed area.

Making a custom temporary tattoo can take a bit of time, but it’s well worth it.
Creating your designs ensures that your tattoos reflect your personality and interests.
Making these tattoos is an excellent way to show off your creativity while experimenting with different designs before settling on a permanent tattoo.
