I’m a jewelry fanatic. I wear jewelry every day. I am never without earrings, necklace, watch, ring, and bracelet just about every day. I even like to wear jewelry to the beach. But whenever I do wear some jewelry to the beach, I’m concerned about losing it.
Enter TribeTats Jewelry-Inspired Temporary Metallic Tattoos. I received the Arm Band Collection in gold, silver, black, and rose gold in a slew of designs.
They are beautiful, super high quality, and such fun to play with and wear. I can wear these to the beach with no fear of loss. Plus I can wear them along with my real jewelry for a very cool look. I’ve gotten really good feedback from everyone who has seen me wearing them!
I’ve been a fan of temporary tattoos since I was a kid. I can’t do the real thing, so temporary is a great substitute. But I have never seen temporary tattoos that are as gorgeous as these from TribeTats! And there are so many of them: 20 designs or colors in the arm band set.
How to Apply
TribeTats temporary tattoos are a breeze to apply. Just tear or cut off the design you want to wear. Wet a washcloth, wring it out, and keep it handy. Remove the plastic protection over the design. Apply the tattoo design side down to your skin wherever you want to wear it.
Place the wet washcloth on top of the tattoo and hold it there for 30 seconds. Remove the washcloth, peel off the paper backing and reveal the tattoo. Magic!
So far, I’ve worn the arm bands as a bracelet and as an ankle bracelet. And I used some extra triangles at the top of the sheet just as a design on my wrist. I love ’em all.
Although these are technically “arm bands”, you would need a slim upper arm for it to go around the entire arm, and I don’t have a slim upper arm. Not matter, I’m using them as I wish. You can also cut up the designs and apply them wherever or however you want. Just don’t put them too close to your eyes.
So far, I’ve been wearing the tattoos for three days. I showered three times but didn’t soap the tattoos, and they were absolutely fine. Next, I went to the beach and swam in the ocean. They still looked great! When I applied cream sunscreen, I avoided the skin with the tattoo because I was concerned the cream might make them come off. On Sunday, we went to a big garden in the woods, and because it was a sunny 90 degree day in a place loaded with bugs, I had to apply both spray sunscreen and insect repellent. One or both of those sprays did some damage to my arm band as you can see in the photo below.
But my three day old anklet is going strong!
How to Remove
The instructions say to soak the tattoo in either rubbing alcohol or baby oil for about a minute. Then wipe it off.
I tried putting argan oil (I didn’t have any baby oil) on a cotton pad and soaking the tattoo with it. I may not have kept it on for a full minute, but that didn’t work all that well. Perhaps there’s something in baby oil/mineral oil that’s not in natural argan oil.
Next I tried soaking a cotton pad in 70% isopropyl alcohol, and that did the trick. Easy peasy.

The TribeTats Jewelry-Inspired Metallic Temporary Tattoos are absolutely great quality, and so much fun to wear. They’re long lasting. I just love them! I think they’d be great on just about anyone especially during the summer (they look great against a tan or deeper skintones). They’d make a terrific gift too.
