Spiderweb tattoos

I got invited to a witches tea–And I live by the motto go big or go home (usually I pick go home) but this time I decided to go big! I had this cool tattoo paper from Silhouette . I actually have used this before on my son’s spider infestation costume. But Silhouette has new colors–white, gold, and silver! So I grabbed the white and created these fun spiderweb tattoos! Great for a witches costume or just to wear around on Halloween with a fun shirt!


First…I used my silhouette! If you need one (EVERYONE NEEDS ONE) silhouette is having an awesome deal!

head HERE! and enter GLUEGUN to get the awesome discount!

Here are the gold, silver and white with the top layer! The silhouette tattoo paper is a little bit tricky…so let me walk you through it!

The other kind of tattoo paper I used, I printed on it first and then cut it out. BUT since I wasn’t doing that this time I got to skip that step. I took the top clear layer (the blue) and peeled off the very top sheet (it has a cut line so it comes off easy)
Then I line it up with the top of the white sheet and stuck it on.  Then I slowly took the backing off and adhered the whole sheet to the white tattoo paper. The top piece is the clear protective layer. Think about those fake tattoos you get. You have to peel the top clear layer off and and then flip the tattoo over and apply it to your skin.


Since you have to flip it over and apply it…If your tattoo has words on it, you will need to flip it horizontal. Since spiderwebs look good from all angles…I got to skip that step too! I purchased 3 different spiderwebs from the silhouette store. I chopped some off since I knew they would be going around my face. 

and cut (Make sure to select tattoo paper in the material and follow the cut suggestions. You cut this out like you would cardstock….all the way through–so a mat is needed! 

Then you apply like a normal temporary tattoo…

Peel off the clear part. Put the sticky part down on your skin where you want it. Press a damp cloth against your skin until the tattoo is saturated and then remove the backing. They actually adhered so well! I was nervous that it would smudge or would wrinkle on my face but they didn’t!  The only part that was hard was around my hair line. All those little hairs prevented the tattoo from getting a really good adhesion…but I still think it looked okay.

I rocked these tattoos all day long–I forgot they were on my face and touched them and scratched them and they held up AMAZING! I seriously couldn’t believe it! And then I got really nervous that maybe they would be hard to come off–but a little baby oil and they came right off! A seriously win!
