A List of Tattoo Products to Consider
If you are considering removing your tattoo, there are a host of products that can be used safely at home.
If you're not in the mood for permanent needle tattoos, we have those tattoo products listed here, too.
Whatever you might be looking for, so are we. We are listing what we deem to be the best tattoo products around, including hiding your tattoo(s) if you don't want them removed using makeup and other tattoo coverups.
Because so many of our visitors have requested seeing all products on one page, we have listed the top tattoo products according to needs beginning with the most requested: tattoo removal 'at home' products and other tattoo coverups and alternatives along with temporary, "fun" tattoos.
Tattoo Removal Products
There comes a time when your tattoo just isn't appropriate any longer. Below we have listed the most popular products for getting rid of that tat:
1. WreckingBalm® continues to be the a popular choice for tattoo removal through a home system. The product incorporates a tattoo-fading cream along with a dermabrasion appliance. Used regularly, the tattoo dissipates or is removed entirely on the average of 4 months.
2.TatBGone is also a favorite for those seeking a home tattoo removal solution. This is a product that fades a tattoo over 4-6 months.
Tattoo Camouflage (Clothing)
There is nothing like the product we have listed here with TatJacket. Contrary to its name, TatJacket is the leader of "Tattoo Cover Clothing" for police officers and others who are not allowed to show their tattoos at work and it's not such a "jacket" as much as a comfortable tattoo coverup.
1. TatJacket. TatJacket has entire line of tattoo coverups including full-upper torso, leg and sleeve attire. The material is like a 'second skin' while protecting from UV rays, is comfortable, affordable, and can be worn (especially by women) under clothing as an accessory in black or skin colors.
Tattoo Camouflage (Makeup)
Do you need that tat covered quickly? You CAN use your own makeup, even some purchased at the nearest dollar store but you can't beat some of the makeup we have listed here:
1. Tattoo Camo. Tattoo Camo (camouflage) is a kit that contains two parts: the tattoo makeup and powder. They also sell a special setting lotion to waterproof their tattoo makeup. Prices start at $35.
2. ColorTrations Tattoo Cover Kit. ColorTration has created a liquid tattoo cover up makeup that some say is preferable over other types of tattoo makeup. A small amount is brushed on the tattoo and feathered around the tattoo's edges to blend into the non-inked skin. The suggested starter kit (for mixing colors to achieve the proper skin color) is $38.
3. Your Own Makeup. Ana Crane Simpson is with Applied Cosmetic Services for About.com and in this video, she shares the techniques for using your own makeup to cover up your tattoo.
Temporary tattoos are a fun alternative to getting inked permanently. They are now beyond those "Cracker Jack" papers and offer temporary tattoo designs that can even be customized. Most last about 3-4 weeks, depending on how well you take care of them. The best deal is to purchase them in bulk; however, they can also be purchased online individually as well.
1. For example, Temporary Tattoos sells 500 temporary tattoos in bulk for as little as $69.00. Customized tattoos may sell online at such places as Tattoo Sales for as much as $235.00 for 10,000 tattoos designed per your specifications.
Henna tattoo designs are as beautiful and varied as their needle-tattoo counterparts.
Henna tattoo designs are applied to the skin using henna tattoo stencils, many of which are reusable.
Henna tattoo kits contain all the henna tattoo supplies you will need and are extremely reasonable in price with most henna tattoo kits under $20 online.
