Temporary Tattoos Are Not Just For Summer

Temporary tattoos are definitely one of the hottest trends in summer. Your best swimsuit can easily be jazzed up by your favorite tat, and a festival OOTD instantly becomes extra special with these temporary works of art. If you have already fallen in love with them (in a less temporary way), then good news—we found more official reasons for you to wear them all year round and not just for summer!

Temporary Tattoos Are Not Just For Summer

Use them for everyday motivation. Temporary tattoos by Tattoo For a Week are good ways to sneak in semi-permanent motivational quotes into your day. Have the words “Live, Laugh, Love” tattooed on your arm to remind yourself to do it as often as you can, or a Bible verse to keep the positivity coming throughout the day. If you have a particular quote in mind, you can simply send the design to Tattoo For a Week and they will have this custom-made, just for you!

 Live Laugh Love Tattoos

Use them to flaunt your inner fanboy/fangirl. Wear iconic symbols from your favorite fandom on your skin for a full week! Are you into Harry Potter? Then you will definitely yell “Accio!” just to get your hands on this Deathly Hallows temporary tattoo, or this one with Harry’s glasses and lightning scar. If you’re a Tolkien fan, you should check out the tat that has the iconic inscription “One Ring to rule them all, one Ring to find them, one Ring to bring them all and in the darkness bind them” that comes in a Middle-earthy font!

Use them to make subtle statements. Put a little humor into being passive aggressive through statement temporary tattoos that you can apply on hidden parts for your body! This one that says “Shhh” is a nice addition to the gesture of holding your forefinger in front of your mouth when you ask someone to be quiet! Or if you have a signature catchphrase, maybe it’s time that you make it known to the world that it’s yours through a custom tattoo!

Use them to reveal little clues about you. What is your zodiac sign? What is your spirit animal? All these interesting pieces of information can now be worn on your skin through temporary tattoos by Tattoo for a Week! Putting on temporary tattoos is not only a good way to express yourself, but it also lets you have that freedom of choosing what part of yourself you want to show through your tattoo since you can choose different designs every week.

Sun tattoos

Will you be visiting an exotic destination this summer? Will you be enjoying the sun at the pool or the beach? Then try a sun tattoo or tan-too! You can apply the sun tattoo sticker anywhere on your body and wait for the sun do its job. After a while you can show everyone your sun tattoo by simply removing the sticker. Sun tattoos became a real boom at the beach last year! And the trend is sure to continue…

Be careful! A sunburn is dangerous. Be sure to read our tips for safe sunbathing at the bottom of the article.

Not that much of an artist yourself? Take a look at our complete collection of tan-toos! They are easy to apply to your body. Just follow the instructions.

Be careful!
No matter how gorgeous a tanned skin looks, you should never endanger your own health. Everyone knows that solar radiation can do a lot of damage. Therefore it’s important that you takes sufficient precautions. Please read the following tips!

1. Always apply sunblock cream with a high protection factor. Use at least factor 20. Make sure to apply a sufficiently thick layer. That’s also the method the manufacturer uses to classify the factor of the cream. Make sure to buy a new bottle every year, as sunblock cream quickly loses its effectiveness.

Do not sunbath for more than 30 minutes, without protection.

2. Apply sunblock cream every two hours and make sure to reapply directly after swimming, even if the bottle states the contained cream is “waterproof”.

3. Do not sunbath between 12:00 AM and 03:00 PM. During this period the sun is at its zenith and the risk of sunburn is at its highest. Be aware that you also tan whilst in the shadows. Even if you do not sit directly in the sun, about 50% of the UV radiation will still reach your skin. Make sure to apply sufficient sunblock cream!

4. If despite all the precautions your skin still turns red or starts feeling burned, please make sure to move out of the sun and apply an after tanning lotion. The after tanning lotion should ideally contain some aloe vera.

5. When you wear a tan-too sticker, you have to be careful when removing the sticker and going back into the sun. The skin below the sticker will start tanning, but as it was protected from the sun by the sticker, it will be more sensitive to sunlight. Make sure to apply sufficient sun blocking cream!

Enjoy your tan-too this summer, but don’t forget about your health!
