About production and delivery time of the
The production and delivery can take up
about 5 or 6 weeks before the tattoo will be delivered at
There are a few reasons for this, and
to help explain, here is a quick look at the printing process.
It's important to
know that your tattoos will not be printed individually. They are grouped together with other
temporary tattoo orders in large press runs in order to get the best possible pricing. The tattoos
ordered in Europe will be processed through Canada and together with their tattoos send on to the
printer, who will deliver straight to us in Europe to avoid extra costs and
Once the art is
received in pur mailbox, it is then processed. Your design is laid out on a large sheet with the

take much much longer to dry than any other types of commercial ink.
After 3-5 days drying time, the tattoo adhesive is
printed over top of the inks. They are then sealed with a plastic cover, cut, packaged, and shipped

appear to have drastically faded or blotchy colors, and are often considered to be of unacceptable
