Absolutely! Flash Tattoos are non-toxic and safe for all ages, though we don’t recommend them for ages 3 and under. All Flash Tattoos pass safety standards for the cosmetic and toy product industries and meet all U.S. and international regulatory requirements. Do not apply to sensitive skin, near eyes, or if you are allergic to adhesives.
Flash Tattoos will last about 2-6 days, depending on where they are placed and how well you take care of them. To care for your tattoos, avoid putting soaps, sunscreens, lotions and oils near or on the them. These types of oil-based substances degrade the adhesive.

You will be amazed by how quick and easy it is to apply your Flash Tattoo with the help of a little water. You want to make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of any oils or the tattoo will not adhere. If you have lotion or any products on (even from hours earlier), use a little soap and water or a cotton ball soaked in rubbing alcohol to clean the area.

Cut out the tattoo as close to the edge as possible (this is important later when you need to line it up). Party bundles, personalized, and custom tattoos are pre-cut for easy application, so no cutting necessary. If you are applying a band that will be worn as a bracelet, anklet or arm band, trim the tattoo to size if it needs to be adjusted while the protective liner is still in place. Once it is properly trimmed, remove the clear sheet.

Place the tattoo face down on your skin and hold a wet cloth against it for about 30 seconds. Peel the paper aside then pat gently with the wet cloth. Tada! Be sure not to twist or stretch skin until the tattoo has had time to set (at least 20 minutes) to avoid cracking. Flash Tattoos look best after they have had an hour or two to set into the skin.

Yes, they are! Make sure to apply them to completely dry skin and let them set for about 30 minutes to ensure the adhesive has had time to set. Then go ahead and hop in that ocean, pool, or shower. Just remember to keep oil-based lotions, sunscreens, body wash, etc off your tats to make them last as long as possible!
Yes! But we think that they look pretty cool… Flash Tans!
Sure! You just want to apply them after the color has set and you have taken a shower to rinse off any lotion residue. Once your skin is tanned and clean, you can apply a Flash Tattoo as you normally would.
To remove your Flash Tattoo, simply soak your skin in baby oil, olive oil or coconut oil for one minute then gently scrub off. Repeat as necessary. Apply lotion to moisturize and soothe the skin area. You can also click here to purchase our Flash Off remover wipes to quickly and easily remove temporary tattoos.
Each collection features original themes and art inspired by our travels, exploring different cultures, and current trends. Each collection is named based on the mood of the designs, favorite destinations, or inspirational people. For example, the Sofia collection was inspired after a visit to the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul and the Sheebani collection was named after the orphan that inspired the start of The Miracle Foundation, which receives 5% of the proceeds from each Sheebani collection purchase.
Yes, we’re the brand that launched a thousand copycats! We like to think that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery… but to be honest, it’s pretty tough when the majority of the knock-offs use bad quality materials that don’t last, steal our photography, and copy our original designs. Don’t be fooled by all the fake Flash out there, babes. Stick with the original, and you’ll be shining with the best of them!
Of course! Flash Tattoos are for everyone. For best results, wear your Flash Tattoos in a place that doesn’t have much body hair since that can get in the way of the adhesive sticking to your skin.
Yes, you can now shine in custom Flash Tattoos…hooray! Shop fully custom party tats, fully custom packs, and personalized (semi-custom) design options for your next special event or promotion.
Personalized is a way to semi-customize your Flash Tattoos, meaning that we offer pre-designed templates that you can personalize with your own text and/or color choices. The fonts and layout however, are pre-set. If you have original art that you’d like to turn into a tattoo, then custom tattoos are the best option for you.

Same top quality materials, same beautiful shine, but the big difference is where and how you’ll be getting Flashy!

Apply party tats to guests at events, give them out as party favors, use them to promote your biz, use as a gift with purchase...the sky is the limit!

Unfortunately, we’re not able to create the art for the tattoos at this time. We recommend contacting local art schools, community listings like Craigslist, or freelance websites to hire a designer if you need some help.

When preparing your artwork for submission, please use the following guidelines:

• Artwork should be colorized in the way that you wish the tattoo to appear when printed. You may specify gold foil with #cfae24, silver foil with #c8c4b7, and any regular CMYK color that you choose. Our advice? Choose colors that strongly contrast with a wide range of skin tones, and perhaps consider outlining your art to create a strong contrast with skin.
• Allow at least a 1/8” (3mm) margin for trimming.
• All fonts must be outlined.
• Avoid super fine lines and very small details, as they are too delicate for printing and tattoo application. All strokes should be .25pt at a minimum.
• Save the file in a vector format, such as .SVG, .AI (Adobe Illustrator), or .EPS. If a vector version is not available and the art was created in Adobe Photoshop or a similar program, the design may be submitted in the highest resolution possible in .JPEG or .PDF format (minimum of 300 dpi). Please DO NOT paste JPEG images into Adobe Illustrator.
