Ac­cord­ing to Flash­, which also stocks the tat­toos, for best ap­pli­ca­tion, ask a friend to help po­si­tion your tat­too so your skin does not twist or stretch.

You want to make sure your skin is clean, dry and free of any oils .

Cut out the tat­too as close to the edge as pos­si­ble (this is im­por­tant later when you need to line it up) and re­move the clear sheet.

Place the tat­too face down on your skin and hold a wet cloth against it for about 30 seconds.

Peel the pa­per aside, then pat gen­tly with the wet cloth.

Be sure not to twist or stretch skin un­til the tat­too has had time to set (at least 10 min­utes).

The tat­toos look best after they have had an hour or two to set into the skin. – Flash­
