General Information :: TEMPORARY TATTOO PAINT



In early 1997, Amunez International was founded in Australia, where a group of pharmacists and chemists, with the help of dermatologists created a laboratory formula for a new long lasting skin paint.
After six weeks of research and laboratory experiments, we created a formula that consisted of a chemical paint powder and a catalyst binding solution. When mixed in the correct proportions, and in the correct manner, a smooth black paint resulted. Artists around the world are now recognizing that our finger and body art product is the cheapest in the world on a "per tattoo" basis. 50grams will complete 250 large designs. These fake tattoos, once applied to the skin, look fantastic and realistic and last anywhere between 7days and 6 weeks, depending on skin type. No preparation of the skin is necessary, and there’s no maintenance afterwards.

Once tattoo is applied the area must be kept dry for a minimum of 90 minutes to ensure a lasting result, then wash with running water, removing the paint "crust". Depending on the skin type the tattoo will last between 5 and 14 days. Do not re-apply tattoo paint to the same skin area as this may cause an allergic reaction and skin damage or scarring.

To ascertain whether the skin is allergic or hypersensitive to the product it is advised a preliminary test is made on a patch of skin in the inner fold of the elbow. If there is no reaction within 48 hours apply your chosen tattoo. If an allergic reaction occurs, apply antibiotic cream and cover up. Do not expose to sun or scratch as scarring may occur.

The Amunez Non permanent Tattoo Paint contains ingredients, which may cause skin irritation to certain individuals. A preliminary test according to accompanying directions should be made before use.

In March 1999, we released our range of waterproof colors. The formula for these was improved and updated in late 2003. Four colors in all, these are ‘pre mixed’…ready to apply…another ‘world first’. A 50ml bottle will complete up to 120 large sized designs.

Firstly – it’s very important for us to point out that our colors do not have the same “skin life” as our famous super black. In fact – our colors are only suitable for ‘coloring in’ tattoo designs. So – if you are doing a black design – say a butterfly or a flower – these colors are great. Skin life is about 2 days – but you will see from the price that there’s enough paint in one bottle to keep ‘touching up’ your temporary tattoo – and so inexpensive.

Amunez Temporary Tattoo Paint Colors. They were created so the color once washed looks like a REAL tattoo. Originally we made the colors very bold, but once applied they looked fake. We think you will agree that the colors really do look REAL.

When applying the colors, do so by painting in several layers. Good results have been reported by ‘rubbing the color paint’ into the skin with a cotton bud or paint brush. Allow about 5 minutes of drying time between each painted layer. Best result is obtained with at least 4 layers. Paint over the same area so there is a good buildup of color. The end result is that the color tattoo paint is “quite thick”.

To preserve your colors, do not wash the tattoo area for at least 2 hours after receiving your fact, the longer you leave it unwashed, the better the result, and when you do wash it, do so with care...not vigorously and not with a flannel, brush, or course material. When washing - expect color to be lost, as this is the residue of the built up layers. Each time you shower/bath do not scrub the area.

Use a moisturizer cream prior to swimming, and better still, apply some Vaseline on the tattoo to make it waterproof and the skin life of the tattoo improves greatly...suntan lotions will reduce the ‘life’. Do not bathe in super hot water, no spa or saunas. In the rare event a skin allergy occurs, apply a cortisone based antibiotic cream and keep covered up for a day or so.
