What are TuckTats?

  • Cover-up smiley-face abdominal scars running from hip-to-hip

  • FDA approved ink
  • Medical-grade adhesive

If I have extremely sensitive skin, can I wear TuckTats?
If you are allergic to adhesives or have extremely sensitive skin, it is recommended that you do not wear temporary tattoos of any kind.  
How long do TuckTats last?
TuckTats last about 4-7 days, even with daily exposure to showers, sun, swimming and ocean surfing.  Check out our 5-day Time Lapse Blog to see for yourself.

Plus, all of the tattoos have a 5 year shelf life, so stock up!
