Temporary tattoos used to be staples at children's birthday parties, with their colorful designs and simple application.
Nowadays, however, the temporary tattoo has come under scrutiny of wary parents. Some believe fake tattoos will eventually lead to real ink. Others are worried about skin irritations or reactions.
It's always good to check that ingredients are non-toxic, and that your temp tat comes from trusted brands, just in case. And baby oil is a gentle way to remove decals from the skin.
Then consider these fun and functional reasons your kid may love a little temporary tattoo.
First and foremost, fake tattoos can foster creativity and promote freedom of personal expression at a young age. Whether it’s wearing a temporary unicorn tattoo or a bold design, allowing your child to express their personal style will foster their confidence and encourage them to continue to share who they really are.
2. Safety precaution
Temporary tattoos can also be useful if you’re afraid of being separated from your child at a theme park or zoo. Using a sports skin marker, or other non-toxic writing utensil, write your name and phone number on your child’s wrist or inner bicep. Then, cover the writing with a liquid bandage so the ink won’t smudge throughout the day. This temporary tattoo will allow another adult to contact you if they have found your child. Many retailers also sell temporary tattoos you can write your number on, which may be easier than using a skin marker.
3. Allergy warning
Protecting your child with severe allergies can also be made easier with a temporary tattoo warning. These types of tattoos are especially helpful if your child is on a field trip with an adult who may not be aware of your child's needs. Safety first.
