Temporary Tattoo Removal for the Face and Body using coconut oil.

When it comes to removing your temporary tattoos everyones skin is different. For some the tattoos will come of easier and for others it will be harder.

A general rule of the thumb is the larger the tattoo the more difficult it is to remove. If you have body hair under the tattoo them that might hurt when removing, so its easier to remove the hair first.

The face and chest area are more sensitive parts of the body and the older you get the skin loses its elasticity so it will be harder to remove tattoos. I have worn my own tattoos on my face, and I can say from experience that temporary tattoos are harder to remove. Its all trial and error and what works for you might not work for someone else. So I’m making it my business to try different methods to see what the differences are.

I do advise you that my tattoos remove easily with baby oil, hot soapy water or rubbing alcohol, and thats the general rule of thumb. Please bare in mind the larger the tattoo the more painful it is to remove, and if you have fine hair beneath it, it will hurt when you come to move it. So remove any hair before you apply your temporary tattoo.

I have been coconut oil for removing and I’m much happier with the experience
