Inkjet Tattoo Paper Is Another Way To Avoid Those Painful Needles

Inkjet Tattoo Paper (Images courtesy Crafty Computer Paper)
By Andrew Liszewski

I suppose that part of the ‘tough’ image associated with tattoos is having to go through the tattooing process itself. But we at OhGizmo! are all for any solution that skips the pain part of getting ink done. That’s why this inkjet tattoo paper is so awesome. Not only is it painless, but it allows you to turn any design or image on your PC into a temporary piece of body art.

Actually creating your own tattoo design is probably the hardest part. Once it’s printed you just need to apply an adhesive sheet to the printout and smooth out any bubbles. When you remove the adhesive sheet, the printed tattoo will be left with a sticky surface allowing it to be applied to your skin with a wet sponge. The tattoos are water-based and non-toxic, so while they’ll stick around for about a week if you avoid bathing or showering, they can easily be removed with just soap and water.

A single A4 sized sheet of Inkjet Tattoo Paper is available from Crafty Computer Paper for about $5, while a 5 pack is about $25. So there’s no real savings for buying in bulk.

    So the materials they use are non-toxic, but what about your inkjet ink? : P

    Great find Andrew! I guess my only question would be: do these (or can they) cause any skin irritation as a result of the ink or the way they are made?

    Who cares. I want a TTF target on my forehead!

    the inkjet ink is transferred to an adhesive film, so the ink never touches your skin (or so I read).

    It's a pretty good way of testing whether you are going to like the look of a tattoo before you really get one.

    Injets content are non-toxic. I love this idea not only because it is a health friendly but it looks like a real tattoo.

    That is pretty cool! I might have drag my inkjet out of storage. I've been using a Laser Printer for ages.
