Overview

Create and tattoo your own designs on yourself or friends at home. Temptu, the famously chic Los Angeles tattoo parlor specializing in temporary as well as permanent tattoos, offers this unique tattoo kit that enables anyone-even those not artistically inclined-to apply temporary tattoos as attractive and personal as permanent ones. The tattoos last up to two weeks.

Each kit comes complete with paints, a paintbrush and a how-to book with hundreds of attractive and stylistic design templates. Users become instant tattoo artists simply by following any of the wide range of outlines that transfer to your body. Fill in the drawings with paint and presto! you have a beautiful piece of body art that looks like a tattoo parlor's best work. The book also teaches freehand technique for creating your own body art.

Ever wondered what it was like to have a tattoo? Just test out one of the many classic tattoos, pop culture tattoos (celebrity, movie, fashion and theater designs), symbols, animals, flowers, mystical patterns and tattoos from around the world.

A special "Ideas" section inspires the household body artist with figures and ornamental details to use in homemade designs, and a hilarious and surprisingly useful "What If" section describes the tattoos famous celebrities-from Picasso to Michael Jackson to Bill Clinton and Princess Diana-would have if they got one.

A handy resource list suggests tattoo parlors for those who wish to make a temporary tattoo permanent.

The book was filled with history and obscure facts, as well as tattoo-related games and jokes. the paint-in tattoo kit was fun and a great value. And we actually went to TEMPTU's website and submitted our own 'tattoo' designs to be printed. In two weeks we received 50 of our very own designs to enjoy. Highly recommended.

I found this book very informative about the history of body art. The fact that is a hardcover and also contains a cosmetic temporary tattoo kit made it a great value. My teenage son just loved it. We plan to order custom tattoos online
