TIPS FOR APPLICATION, LONG-LASTING WEAR, & MANIFESTATION

Each Conscious Ink Manifestation Tattoo has been purposefully created to empower you on your personal journey. The steps below will help you get the most out of your Conscious Ink. Happy manifesting!
Step One: Prepare
Your body is a work of art. Let’s prepare the canvas. Be sure your skin is clean, dry and
oil/lotion free. To significantly increase the longevity of your tattoo, we HIGHLY
RECOMMEND using a little rubbing alcohol to clean/prep the skin area first, especially if you have oily skin or use lotion regularly. Do not apply tattoos on skin that is sweaty or hot from a workout, like after a hot yoga class. Tattoos won’t adhere properly. Wait for the skin to cool down before applying.
Step Two: Set
Select an area on your body that doesn’t get too much wear & tear (or that can be rubbed by jewelry). The forearm is a perfect spot, as opposed to the wrist. We don’t recommend placing on hands or feet for long-term wear. You can shower and wash normally. Most soaps do not impact your tattoo. Have fun and get creative. Don’t forget you can combine tattoo messages!
Step Three: Manifest
Patience is a virtue for a reason :-). Take your time here. Remove transparent cover. Place the tattoo face down on your skin and soak with a wet paper towel. Soak thoroughly all the way to the edges! Wait at least 30 seconds. During this time, you can focus on what you'd like to see manifest in your life. That’s it. Your tattoo and intention have been set! If you notice any stickiness from the tattoo after application, this is normal. It’s just excessive adhesive that you can gently wash off with soap and water. You can also apply a little baby powder on the tattoo if you ever find your
tattoo sticky. After initial application, your tattoo may appear a bit shiny. This wears off naturally within a couple hours. A dash of baby powder will also remove any sheen. Also, please understand, that natural wear of the tattoo occurs throughout the life of tattoo...that means there may be some fading and some showing through the tattoo. This is normal. We painstakingly design our tattoos for longer wear, and continuously improve them at each reprint, taking into account thickness of the lines, along with legibility of the message. Enjoy...and happy manifesting to you!
TATTOO REMOVAL
Removing your tattoo is easy. Use household tape, baby oil, rubbing alcohol, or hand
sanitizer. Your tattoo may be physically gone, but its impact will remain.

How long does Conscious Ink last on skin?
Conscious Ink Manifestation Temporary Tattoos last 2-5 days on average (up to 10 days with careful application and attentive care). Length of wear depends on skin type, how, and where, the tattoo is applied, and careful application. Using a little rubbing alcohol to clean/prep the skin increases length of wear. (Excessive sweat and heat reduces the life of the tattoo.) Do not apply tattoos on hot or sweaty skin, or skin with lotion, as they will not adhere to skin properly. See application tips for more detailed information. Return to Top
Can I shower with my Conscious Ink?
Yes, and we highly recommend it! ;-) Don't worry, water and most soaps will not remove your tattoo, but do avoid excessive scrubbing of ink directly. Return to Top

Concerned about soy allergies?
Our temporary tattoos do contain an ingredient called, glycine soya, which is associated with the soybean. However, the glycine soya has not posed allergic risks. It is an oil that is a drying agent. What that means is that it hardens to coat the surfaces of the ink in the tattoo. The allergy comes from residual protein in the oil, but, once the oil hardens, if any at all protein exists, it would be incorporated into the coating from the “drying”. Drying means that the unsaturated oils in the total oil react with oxygen, in turn they form a clear polymer. This coating encapsulates the inks and other ingredients of the tattoo, in addition to the adhesive which acts as a barrier between the tattoo and the skin.   Return to Top
How are temporary tattoos applied?
Conscious Ink is fast and easy to apply. The skin should be clean and free of OILS, LOTIONS and MAKE-UP. Next, remove the clear, protective top sheet. Then press the tattoo firmly onto clean, dry skin with the design facing down. Hold a wet paper towel, or cloth, against the back of the tattoo, press down and make sure to soak it thoroughly. Wait 30 seconds and slowly peel-off the paper backing. Gently rinse the image with water for best effect and allow the tattoo to dry before touching or covering with clothing. To significantly increase the longevity of your tattoo, we recommend using a little rubbing alcohol to clean the skin area first, especially if you have oily skin or use lotion regularly. Every temporary tattoo has these "How to Apply" instructions on the back. ATTENTION: Don't apply to sensitive skin, open wounds, near eyes or if allergic to adhesive. Return to Top
