Custom Temporary Tattoo


Shipping to United States: $3.58


Send over a good quality image of the design itself on a white or transparent background with no watermarks, (not an image of the tattoo on someone's skin) and I can turn it into a temporary tattoo for you.

-At this time, I cannot draw a design from scratch for you, unless you'd be ordering in bulk. You provide the image ready for print as a JPEG ONLY.

-Send your image here on Etsy messages. There is a small icon in the corner of the text box to attach an image.

-I will print your image exactly as-is.

-In the case of text tattoos, you must send the text already typed out as a jpeg. I can't create the text image for you.

-I can also do bulk orders, so please reach out to me for pricing in that case.

- I recommend searching Pinterest for designs, and remember, it doesn’t necessarily have to be an image labeled as a “tattoo design,” it can be any drawing, artwork, image or photo on a white background.

- Please note, tattoos with large areas of solid color can sometimes print with very tiny white pinwheel dots from my printer’s rollers. These dots are barely noticeable at all once the tattoo is applied to skin, but it’s something to consider when selecting your design. Designs composed of line work such as most the designs in my shop are ideal.

-How long do they last? Please see my shop FAQs on my store's home page, at the very bottom of the page.

This is a great way to test a tattoo design that you want to get done, or to experiment with different placements before committing for life!

The price of your design will depend on the size you choose.

I have been making temporary tattoos from my artwork for many years now, and have experimented with many temporary tattoo papers to find the most realistic and highest quality available. They are not waterproof because the waterproof temporary tattoo paper is very thick and shiny on the skin like a vinyl bumper sticker. So I have chosen the least shiny, and most realistic paper to provide the best quality product that I possibly can.


• All tattoos are shipped already cut and ready for application.

• The designs are original, handcrafted and made to order by Cari Gnam in Miami, FL.

• Orders placed until 4pm EST are shipped on the same day. Orders placed after that are always shipped the next business day.

• Temp-Tats are made with top quality tattoo paper and hypoallergenic ink.


• Applies like a regular temporary tattoo, just press it on with a wet sponge. In case of storage, please keep it in cool temperature and away from direct sunlight.

• Lasts for up to a week or more depending on conditions and placement location. Your order will include detailed instructions for application, removal, and tips to make it last as long as possible.

• To keep your Temp-Tat pristine, keep it dry. They can withstand some light splashes of water, and when fully submerged or soaked in the shower, the design will still be there, but will become slightly sticky and less shiny.

Frequently Asked Questions

How long do Temp-Tats last?

They can last anywhere from a few days, up to a week. It all depends on how well you care for your tattoo and where it’s placed on the body. Getting the design wet will initiate the degradation process, so if you want it to last as long as possible, place it somewhere on the body that allows you to keep it dry. I will include more detailed tips on how to make it last as long as possible with your order.

Custom and personalized orders

If you have an image of your desired tattoo design ready for print, I can make it into a Temp-Tat for you- no problem. Pricing will depend on how big you want it.

When it comes to custom making a tattoo, or modifying an existing tattoo, it depends on your individual request in terms of if I can make your idea come to life. I can print virtually any design or photo you'd like as a tattoo. Designs should be sent ready to print, or with only minor modifications needed.

Typically, I only accept a request to draw up a design from scratch if you’ll be purchasing a large quantity (over 50) due to the time it takes to create. However, feel free to reach out to me and we can discuss your ideas.

Sizing details

Dimensions for each tattoo in my shop are listed in the item details and listing photos show actual size. However, I am happy to modify a design's size to meet your needs. As far as custom tattoos, I can print as large as 8.5" x 11". If you need help deciding what size you need for your tattoo, I'm here to help.

Care instructions

Temp-Tats stay intact as long as they're kept dry. To keep your tattoo looking its best, try to wear it on an area that you can keep out of the water as long as possible. You can always wrap the area tightly with plastic wrap and seal with tape to shower while also keeping the area away from the facet.

A few splashes of water are ok, but complete submersion will cause the clear outer layer to wash off and the design will begin fading. Remember, it is a temporary tattoo after all, it's an accessory that's intended to last a few days, a week at best but it wont even last a day if the proper care instructions are not followed.

Gift wrapping and packaging

Temp-Tats are sent in thin plastic packaging, so it's not practical to wrap them in traditional wrapping paper, but I can make the presentation a little extra special upon request.

My husband was very happy with his “trial tattoo”! He is getting the same design in July and wanted to see it first. Very fast service! Thank you!

The tattoo was exactly like the picture. Clear and bold! It was easy to apply and looked great.
