Temporary or Semi-Permanent? What is the difference?

Temporary tattoos and Semi-Permanent tattoos are both types of body art that offer a non-permanent way to decorate your skin, but they differ in terms of their longevity, application process, and overall characteristics. Here is a breakdown of the differences between the two:

Temporary Tattoos

Longevity:

Temporary tattoos are designed to be short-lived and generally last for a few days up to about a week. They gradually fade away as they come into contact with water and the natural oils on the skin.

Appearance:

Temporary tattoos often have a shiny, slightly transparent appearance once applied. That is why we introduced THE Towel, which is with every purchase of our temporary or custom tattoos - to make your temporary tattoos appeal more real.

Semi-Permanent Tattoos:

Longevity:

Semi-permanent tattoos, as the name suggests, last longer than temporary tattoos. They typically remain on the skin for seven to fourteen days, gradually fading as the skin exfoliates.

Appearance:

Semi-permanent tattoos can closely resemble real tattoos. They often have more depth, detail, and vibrancy compared to temporary tattoos.

Considerations:

When deciding between temporary and Semi-Permanent tattoos, it is important to consider factors such as your desired look, how long you want the tattoo to last, and your commitment level to the design. Temporary tattoos are great for trying out different designs without a long-term commitment, while semi-permanent tattoos offer a more realistic appearance and last longer, but may require more careful consideration due to their extended presence on the skin.
