If you have been around here much you may have noticed that I kind of have a thing with temporary tattoo paper. I’ve made Bunco tattoos, crafty maker tattoos, Fourth of July tattoos, and you can expect to see some more around here. They are just so much fun to make!
So, of course, I had to make some Halloween tattoos. I mean, obviously.
I painted up some spooky watercolor designs, and got them all set up to turn into tattoos. There are drippy watercolor ghosts, pretty moons, bats, and a couple of fun phrases too. So, you are all set to make your own tattoos for all your Halloween festivities – all you need is ten minutes and a few simple supplies.
Supplies (I have included affiliate links below. If you click through and make a purchase I may receive a small commission. Thanks for supporting Persia Lou!):
- Temporary Tattoo Paper
- My Watercolor Halloween Tattoo Designs (free for personal use only)
- Applicator or Old Credit Card
If you haven’t ever used temporary tattoo paper before, it is SO easy to use. In the package you will find a piece of shiny white paper and an adhesive sheet with light green backing. To create the temporary tattoo, you simply need to print your designs onto the shiny side of the white paper. Make sure the image has been flipped horizontally before printing (I’ve already flipped the images on my Halloween designs for you).
Peel off the top strip of the light green backing and apply the adhesive sheet to the printed image. Slowly peel off the backing and press the adhesive onto the printed image. Use the applicator tool or a credit card to firmly apply the adhesive to the printed image. Finally, use scissors (or an electronic cutting machine – I love my Silhouette!) to cut around each design.
Easy peasy, right? Now you have a whole pile of spooky watercolor tatts for Halloween.
Applying the temporary tattoos is super easy too. Simply peel off the clear plastic sheet, place the image face down on your skin, place a wet sponge or cloth on top of the paper, and peel off the paper backing.
You could also make tattoos for a Halloween party or you could add them to goody bags to give out to trick or treaters. Kind of a fun little addition, right?
If you make and wear your own Halloween tattoos, I would LOVE to see them! Tag me on instagram or share to my facebook page.
Happy Making, friends!
