Removing Temporary Tattoos

My children were given temporary Christmas tattoos at a festival. I can't get the tattoos washed off their faces! I've tried soap and water, makeup remover, hydrogen peroxide, and canola oil.

Try rubbing baby oil on it. That may work. If not, Huggies baby wipes have worked for me in the past... my 5 year old likes tattoos, and they take it off, you just have to work at it a little bit! (12/15/2006)

Rubbing alcohol sometimes works. I've never tried it but I think nail polish remover might help. (12/15/2006)

Get a pumice block like that used to smooth elbows and heels. (Dr. Scholls or similar.) Scrub very gently (children's skin is more fragile than adult's;) using the block and some cold cream or Noxzema. Keep the pumice particles out of little eyes. The same caution goes for nail polish remover if it is tried. (10/23/2008)

Olive oil on a paper towel rubbed on the tattoo works great and doesn't irritate the child's skin. (01/25/2009)

We tried olive oil, baby oil, and baby wipes; nothing worked.

The best suggestion... scotch tape! Worked in one second. Amazing! (02/27/2009)

My Granddaughter needed her temporary tattoo removed for a dance recital and I tried most of the suggestions with no success. In desperation I used Goo Be Gone. The tattoo came off instantly. (06/17/2009)
