It is that time of month again…Silhouette Promo time!   Did you know in addition to the Silhouette machine cutting out fabric, paper, vinyl, rhinestones and cardstock it can also cut out temporary tattoos?

This month I made some Child Safety temporary tattoos.   These are perfect when you take your small child into an area that has a lot of people…Disneyworld, crowded malls at Christmas, theme parks, etc.

I am not a normally paranoid momma but this added tattoo isn’t going to hurt any either.   For a child that does not already have your phone number memorized the Silhouette can help you design temporary tattoos with your phone number on it in case of an emergency.   Or if your child has a severe allergy you can make up some that says “no peanuts,” etc.

1.   Design your child safety tattoo in the Silhouette Studio program making sure to mirror your image and allow registration marks to show.

2.   Print it out onto the tattoo paper with a regular inkjet printer.   Adhere the plastic sheet over the top burnishing it down.   Then run it through the Silhouette machine to cut the tattoo out.


3.   Remove the plastic and stick it on your child’s arm wetting the back and pressing it for 10-15 seconds.   Peel off the backing and you have yourself a tatted up safe child.

  1. Another idea…. I’ve seen some pretty cute pics of little boys in muscle shirts with a tatoo like I love Mom, or I even had a friend put a Cubs one on her toddler once… might be fun. : ) Or some for a bday party fun bag? : )

  2. Do you sell the tattoo’s? I am taking my autistic child to Disney Land and would love to have something like this. If you don”t do it do you know who does?

  3. my family is heading to disney world this spring and would really like this for my two year old. I dont have the money for a cricut these days. maybe later. would I be able to do this with out the cricut machine? cant I just use scissors?

  4. Thank you for the awesome idea! I made some with Stitch and others with R2D2 for my DS. Can’t wait to try them out in a couple of weeks at Disneyland! This also inspired me to make some tattoos for our upcoming race for the cure run.

  5. We used these last year when we went to Disney World. We have 5 children and this was one of the smartest ideas ever! Our 4 yr old didn’t want to take his off and it lasted 3 weeks and even then it was still sticky. Highly recommend

  6. If you are not able to make your own you can buy them on line. We bought a pack of 6 very cheap. Best thing we did and it last on the arm for 3 weeks and had to convince our 3 yr old time to take off. It would of lasted longer.
