What are TuckTats?
TuckTats temporary tattoos are FDA-approved, safe, and non-toxic.  They are easy to apply and remove, lasting up to 7-days, even in sunny, salty and chlorinated environments.  Plus, they make a great cost-effective solution for:
  • Covering-up abdominal scars resulting from tummy tucks, caesarian sections and other abdominal surgeries
  • Camouflaging body blemishes, such as stretch marks, birthmarks, varicose veins, moles and scars
  • Complimenting all body types and styles of dress
  • Having some on-trend, styling fun
Are TuckTats safe?
TuckTats are made in North America using pigments that are subject to the same FDA approval process as those used for any other cosmetic.  TuckTats are made from non-toxic and hypo-allergenic ingredients.
Knowing where temporary tattoos are manufactured and ensuring they come from a reliable source is key to determining whether a temporary tattoo is safe and non-toxic to apply. Unapproved pigments sometimes used by cheaper manufacturers can provoke serious allergic reactions.  
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?
All temporary tattoos, including TuckTats, will have a natural reduction in colour intensity and design cohesiveness starting from the moment of application.  How long a temporary tattoos lasts depends on a variety of factors, including skin composition, types of clothing worn and activities undertaken.  
For maximum longevity, it is highly recommended to avoid direct application of lotions and oils, in addition to clothes that rub directly on the temporary tattoo. Check out our 5-Day Time Lapse Blog to visually see the reduction in colour intensity and design cohesiveness from application to final day.  
 
By keeping skin oil-free and by avoiding tight-fitting clothes that directly rub on the temporary tattoo, TuckTats typically last about 4-5 days, even with daily exposure to showers, sun, swimming and ocean surfing.  For those users comfortable with more significant fading, TuckTats can last up to 7-days.  Plus, all of the tattoos have a 5 year shelf life, so stock up!
Are TuckTats easy to apply?
Yes!  TuckTats temporary tattoos are easy to apply using a water-soaked cloth or paper towel, taking less than one-minute from start to finish.  Follow the instructions on the back of each temporary tattoo and check out our How-to Apply Blog.
 
What's the best way to remove TuckTats?
TuckTats temporary tattoos are best removed by soaking a face cloth or cotton pad with rubbing alcohol and/or baby oil and rubbing over the area.  Although each skin type will react differently, it is recommended to use a combination of rubbing alcohol and baby oil.    

Can I apply TuckTats on a new incision?
It is not recommended to apply temporary tattoos on fresh incisions until after your doctor has given you approval.
 
How long and wide are TuckTats?
While each design has it’s own unique shape, width and length, on average TuckTats measure 3-inches wide and 17-inches long.  Although TuckTats were designed to cover smiley-face shaped abdominal scars running from hip-to-hip, they can be used for a wide range of coverage options- or just for some good fashion fun.
 
How can I customize my TuckTat?
Simply grab a pair of scissors and trim as desired.  Measuring about 3-inches wide and 17-inches long, TuckTats can easily be customized, just for you.
