    I actually did MAKE MY OWN TEMP TATTOO

    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.

    Had Fun Test Driving A Tattoo!

    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
