What happens if I have a reaction?

Stop using TATTUAGE jewelry if you react to it. It is normal for your skin to change color and/or wrinkle where the adhesive and jewelry sits on the skin. If a rash does happen then stop using our products. Some people have allergic reactions to certain metals such as brass, copper, silver and so forth. If you do react to metals, TATTUAGE jewelry may not be for you.

How is Tattuage used?

You adhere the metal jewelry to the skin by adding adhesive to one side of your jewelry and then placing on your skin. Its strong bond allows you to wear our body jewelry for the day but best used for 4-5 hours. Once you are done wearing your jewelry, simply peel off the metal, which you can reuse after cleaning it with your remover. Please refer to our TATTUAGE jewelry steps guide to properly wear it.

How long can I wear it Tattuage?

Our jewelry can be worn for a day if the initial skin/jewelry bond was properly adhered. Our adhesive is made with strong bonding agents commonly used in costume theater props and prosthetics designed for active wear and sweating. Taking a shower or being submerged in water will release the metal adhesion.

How do you shape the metal to fit on your skin?

Our metal jewelry is thin enough that you can contour it to your body. You can use any smooth, hard surface such as a bottle of shampoo to slightly curve it. Do so gradually so you don’t over bend the metal. Always make sure there is complete skin contact with the metal jewelry.
