#Wordless Wednesday: Temporary (thank goodness) Tattoos

Note: we allowed him to take one sheet of 5 tattoos and apply them himself (per his request).
Never in a million years did we think he'd put them on his face and neck, bwuahahaha. It makes for interesting conversation when we go out in public. It's been three days now, and despite soap and a washcloth, they're still going strong. ;)

Those must be some pretty good temporary tattoos to last so long. He chose a great place to display them, everyone can see them better this way :)

My Journey With Candida said...

Thank goodness for the temporary tattoos. I have seen way to many of them on people in the wrong spots.

Masshole Mommy said...

My kids love those things, too. They plaster them all up and down their arms.

Janine Huldie said...

Emma got a fake tattoo a few months ago at a kids birthday party. The thing was hideous after a day or two and yet she wouldn't let us remove it for days after that. So, I totally felt you pain reading this one!!

Brian Miller said...

stevebethere said...

Ha Ha! Try eye makeup remover. That worked better than soap for Isaak's. The whole story is cute though.

BTW I saw that you can put temporary tattoos on drinking glasses. They come off after awhile. I didn't know if you would ever want to try that.

Optimistic Existentialist said...

LOL yes I'd imagine these are interesting conversation-starters indeed :-)

mail4rosey said...

You're right, I think his placement tactics were very strategic. ;)

mail4rosey said...

It sounds like something little man would get a kick out of it. We may try it (if he's willing to give up any of those tattoos). ;)

OrangeHeroMama said...

lol! totally something my youngest would do!!

Pat Hatt said...

hahaha well at least you'll always have something to talk about. Plus he just wants them to be seen.

Henrietta said...

lol! Now there's a statement! Those tattoos can be a pain to scrub off!

Lisa @ Two Bears Farm said...

Oh that's hilarious!

Secondary Roads said...

Cool! And he's getting great mileage with them too.

Veronica Lee said...

I thought they look awesome! Kids do the darndest things!

Courtney B :) said...

This is so funny. Of course the are hard to come off, if he would have put them anywhere else they probably would have came off in a jiffy because you were not bothered by it. So funny.

Heather @ The Beating Hearth said...

Well, what fun for him! It's like when my kids insist on wearing their own designer creations...just gotta go with it.

Julie Maloney said...

My son has the same shirt, if I showed him this picture he'd want me to tat him up!

Leovi said...

Charming, he looks very happy!

Renae Simple Sequins said...

This little guy of your is so cute. You can tell he is loved. Does he even remember he still has those on his face? hahahahahaha

Monica said...

lol...you never know with kids do you Rosey! Super photo, just look at the concentration on his little face!

Ms POSH said...

I bet there are a lot of people out there who wish they had gone temporary.

JDaniel4's Mom said...

It looks like he is really enjoying them.

Sandee said...

How adorable. At least these will wash off at some point. The very best kind.

Have a terrific day. ☺

Z said...

LOL all kids are same, right?

Melissa @ My Recent Favorite Books said...

So cute! =)

Judy Haughton-James said...

LOL! You sure they are temporary Rosey?! Just teasing you. He looks cool with them. He is certainly enjoying his summer.

Kelly R. said...

My daughter loves temp. tattoos. I am also thankful that they wash off-eventually.

mail4rosey said...

Crossing fingers and toes, Judy! They are starting to fade in places a little bit now, so there's hope. ;)

Ann Jones said...

My boys have both put them on their faces before, so don't feel bad :)

Lynn said...

It seems most of the men(and sister) in my life are tattooed; my daddy, husband, one son and my seven year old is already obsessed with the temporary tattoos....I guess it's tat kind of world these days. Thanks for sharing.

mail4rosey said...

My oldest joined the military and became this big hulking dude full of tattoos. He's still the same sweetheart on the inside, but he sure looks different on the outside (not in a bad way, just in a surprising way). :)

~ Noelle said...

lol. that is awesome :) we love tats and think it is fun... (of course, marc lets him do them on SATURDAYS.... just in time for church on Sunday)

Christy Maurer said...

That is so funny! Kids love tattoos! Use some eye makeup remover maybe lol.

Kathy said...

Love his surer hero garb and that sand mountain machine looks like a lot of fun.

Stephanie said...

Susan Kane said...

My gr-daughter Sunshine had a Peter Pan tattoo that she refused to be removed. We used cooking oil after three weeks, I believe. Your boy was very creative!

Pride In Photos said...

Oh boy, I will have to remember this for Little Man in a few years...no face or neck. But it sure makes for cute pics☺

Kristin Aquariann said...

Oh my! You're in trouble when he's old enough to get a real tattoo.

Any kid tough enough to sport Spiderman *and* Superman definitely deserves the facial tattoos. He pulls it off better than Mike Tyson does!

My girls have put temporary tattoos on the smalls of their backs - and we went to Walmart, where they just fit in.

Our Neck of the Woods said...

Haha too funny! I would have guessed he'd put them on his arms or something, but he went right for the face!

Dara said...

I've seen kids do that before!

mail4rosey said...

My oldest two thought it would be funny to get their younger sister one of those at Cedar Point (amusement park) and then tie her shirt into a half shirt. Needless to say mom was not amused. ;)

Joyce Lansky said...

Thank goodness for temporary is right. I've had a few henna tattoos and could never wait the two weeks for them to fade without scrubbing my skin pink to get them off.

Mel@Mellywood's Mansion said...

lol oh well it's school holidays :) I think I heard somewhere that baby oil (mineral oil) will get it off

Felicia Carter said...

Love it!!

Robin Wilson said...

I am sorry but I think that is hilarious! He gotcha good with this one mom. Temporary must have been used loosely in the description of those tattoos. LOL ~ at least he's not in school right now. Try mineral oil, but I bet alcohol (last resort) would do the trick. Good Luck!

Chatty Crone said...

He is so cute Rosey - I remember my kids when they were little like that. Sandie

Theresa said...

That's cute! Allison has a fixation with temporary tattoos too. She is plotting the day she turns 18 so she can have real ones. Many a day has she walked out of the house looking just like him. I find that rubbing alcohol is a Godsend when it comes to removing them.

Jennifer @ Mom Spotted said...

Oy, been there, done that! We now have a no face/hands rule! Glad you took a pic first!

Kristi Maloney said...

Thank God these are just temporary eh? I went to the McDonald's drive through the other day and the girl that took my money had a nice big tattoo on her neck. Hey, nothing against tattoos, but the neck? really? How do you cover THAT up? lol

Kristie said...

LOL! Gotta love how little ones think :-) I'm not sure if someone commented with this already, but they come off pretty good with either rubbing alcohol or peroxide...can't remember which :-)

Mary said...

So fun! My daughter started a family tradition like tattoos, except with Sharpies...

The first sign of her handiwork was across her little sister's forehead....

It said, "Mail To: Timbuktoo."

My youngest now just draws on himself daily. I give up! ;)

Maria said...

ahhh, i love it! i used to love fake tattoos when i was a kid. i thought they were the coolest thing!
i love the photo of your son!
i hope you're doing well and enjoying the summer! and i HOPE you're staying cool! :) thinking of you and sending lots of love, rosey. xoxox

Monica said...
