Decorating Easter eggs with temporary tattoos

Decorating easter eggs with temporary tattoos

Spring has sprung, and we’re excited to celebrate warmer weather and springtime holidays. One of our favorite new spring traditions is decorating Easter eggs with temporary tattoos. We’ve heard from a lot of people with questions about using temporary tattoos to decorate eggs.

We held an Easter egg decorating test-run at Tattoo Manufacturing HQ this week, and today we’re sharing our tips and tricks for foolproof (and fun!) egg decorating with temporary tattoos.

First, we gathered all of our favorite Easter tattoo designs. Easter baskets, bunnies, colorful eggs, chicks, and butterflies were all invited. We also assembled vinegar and dye to color our eggs.Easter eggs and temporary tattoos

Next, we dyed a few of our eggs.

We tried applying tattoos to dyed (still wet) eggs, but we found that the tattoos stuck to the eggs much better if we applied the tattoo first, and then dunked the egg in the dye.

So, we got busy applying tattoos on our eggs.

First, we chose a tattoo design.

Next, we centered the tattoo on the egg and dabbed the tattoo gently with a damp paper towel, moving from one side of the tattoo to the other so that the entire tattoo design stuck to the egg.

Then, we peeled away the paper tattoo back – voila! – to reveal our design. Sometimes we needed a few more pats with our damp cloth to smooth out any wrinkles.

Once we nailed down the perfect process, we went to town decorating the rest of our eggs.
