Frequently Asked Questions

Unlike most temp tattoos, POP!NK works by sinking into your skin and doesn’t just stick on top. Our tattoos are painless and super easy to apply - there are only a few steps involved! Once applied the ink reacts with the proteins and keratin in your skin, and darkens over 24-36 hours.

On the tattoo applicator, you’ll notice the ink is a light blue shade. This is how the tattoo will look when first applied to your skin - but don’t worry! Over 24-36 hours, your tattoo will darken into a tattoo-like shade.

Our tattoos can last up to 1-2 weeks. How long it lasts is highly dependent on where you apply your tattoo, your daily activities and skin’s moisture. Our ink gradually fades away as your skin naturally regenerates. Want to remove it sooner? Lightly scrub your skin with an exfoliant (like warm saltwater or a body scrub). Be gentle with your skin - it may take a few tries to remove the ink entirely.

Nope! We're all about tattoos without the pain. The only discomfort you may experience is from taking off the applicator, which is similar to peeling off a bandage. Here are a few tips for removing the applicator as seamlessly as possible: - Hold the skin taut before beginning to peel. - Peel swiftly in a continuous motion.

Generally, smudging is the result of too much moisture being trapped in the applicator. This happens if your body is too hot before you put on the tattoo, or there's excessive movement while the tattoo is developing.
The most important things to remember are:
Moisturize the area 1 hour before application - it's best to use a water-based moisturizer!
Use the Primer Wipe before applying your tattoo to make sure your skin is exfoliated and prepped for application.
Don't reposition or reapply the tattoo once it's on your skin.
Once the tattoo is developing avoid any excessive movement and heat. Wear short sleeves to avoid any heat/sweat.
When going to bed the first night after application, wear loose fitting clothes over the tattooed area to avoid transferring overnight.

If you have coarse or dense hair, we recommend shaving prior to application. This is because hair acts as a barrier between the ink and skin (so the tattoo won't adhere directly!). This can cause the ink to leak, smudge, or for the tattoo to be underdeveloped.
Light hair on the application area is fine and allows for a good transfer, but the more hair there is, the more room there is for error. If you are questioning whether or not to shave the application area, we suggest shaving it.
Note that shaving can cause micro-cuts in the skin that put the skin at higher risk of irritation. Post shaving, we suggest moisturizing the skin to heal any damage and keep it healthy for application.
If you shave, we recommend waiting 24 hours before applying your tattoo.
