Make Your Own Tattoos and a Silhouette Deal

I received some of Silhouette's Tattoo Paper the other day to try out.  We had some serious fun with it. 

The cool thing is that you can make a tattoo from any image you can find.  So, Rex and I got on the computer and googled everything he and Baden thought was cool. 

The boys were really excited about their tattoos.

Then we had some cousins drop by.  They were pretty excited about the tattoos too.

Then we had some more cousins drop by and they also had some fun....

....and then some more fun.  We got a bit carried away (and I might have sent a young nephew home with a tattoo on his bum to surprise his mommy at bath time.  Hey, he requested it :)

I think the Tattoo Paper could be really fun for a birthday party.  You could print up a bunch to go with the theme. 

They were easy to make.  You print them on the paper and then lay a sticky, clear sheet over the top.  That layer adds an adhesive to the images.  Then you peel off the clear layer and apply the tattoo with water, just like the temporary ones from the store.

The Silhouette store also has a lot of tattoos that can be printed and cut using the Silhouette software, but I think it's fun that you can use the paper even if you don't have a Silhouette.

So, here are the new screaming deals for the Silhouette:
1 Silhouette SD
2 Packages Temporary Tattoo Paper
for $199 (U.S. only)
(That’s 120 bucks in savings!)
Also, (wait for it…) 25% off all other products in the Silhouette shop (excluding gift cards and download codes)! The promo will run June 21-29.

Just go HERE and use the promo code "ROAR" to get the deals.

Thanks for reading.  See you tomorrow.


  1. That is just awesome. I really need to get a silhouette.

  2. I'm curious, how well did the tattoo hold up? My son got some tattoos at a birthday party three weeks ago and he is still sporting one, it hasn't cracked or anything. It takes super scrubbing to get them off. But I've heard that some peel off, which i find less appealing. So how do the Silhouette brand tattoo papers hold up?

  3. Ok, this is so stinkin' cute! You can never have too many temporary tattoos! I love the looks on the boys faces! What a fun activity - so simple but impactful!

  4. Here is a stupid question...is a silhouette the same thing as a cricut machine? I have the $$ to buy a new toy and not sure which one is better? Or are they just two completely different things?

  5. crazy cute! I'd totally do this if temporary tattoos didn't freak my little guy out... oh well, maybe someday :)

  6. Aww! I love the bubble Guppies one!! Such a cute show... Norah love Wonder Pets too. Also, check out some Wee-Sing videos they're awesome!

  7. Those are so fun! I made some with my silhouette for pirate day at school. The kids had so much with them!

  8. My son would love these! I think you need to make a mustache tattoo for Rex to put on his face :)

  9. Super cute! I love the idea of doing things the kids already love. (and that Batman one is so super cool!) I wouldn't have to ask twice if my kids would want these! Love it!

  10. So So So Cool! I have been wanting to get a silhouette for a while now, this just makes me want one more! My kids think temporary tattoos are so awesome.

    Love the tattoo on the bum surprise!

  11. haha. those shots are great. love the tough guy faces.

  12. Hey Cheri - these are fab!
    I don't often turn the screen round for Cleggy to see but had to show him these (he doesn't show any great interest in crochet funnily enough)- great pictures of the cousins...my boys would LOVE a set of cousins like them.
    Incidently Cleggy also has a tattoo on his bum - it was as a surprise for me!!!
    fee x
    (he is now searching for uk stockists of said tattoo paper!)

  13. What a great idea!! Someday I'll have a silhouette so I can print out some of these adorable tatoos for the kids!! Awesome!

  14. Okay, I have a silhouette and havent really gotten the time to use it much. I saw the tattoo paper online. But I dont understand how it works. The silhouette doesnt have ink in it does it? So how do you get the color onto the tattoo?

  15. Rockin it! I was so bummed to miss the big 25% off sale! My blade is shot! Love it "ROAR" you are awesome as always! Thank you :)

    I loved looking at your pictures, the boys are so cute

  17. Ahhh! Bubble Guppies Love it!!

  18. The specifics of each tattoo's healing process will depend on the different skin type of the individual, the location of the tattoo on the body, an the techniques of the tattoo artist. These factors can all cause a variance in the healing process from individual to individual.tattoo locations
