Preparing Your Skin for Application

Before applying a temporary tattoo for race running, it's essential to prepare your skin.

This means cleaning the area where you plan to apply the tattoo, avoiding applying any moisturizer or lotion and removing excess body hair.

It's also important to make sure the area is dry before applying the tattoo.

Applying and Maintaining Your Temporary Tattoos for Race Running 

Applying a temporary tattoo is easy, but it's essential to follow the instructions carefully.

Once the tattoo is applied, it's important to avoid rubbing or scratching the area to ensure it lasts as long as possible.

It's also important to avoid exposing the tattoo to hot or warm water, as this can cause it to peel.
