If you are in-between sizes, pick the smaller size as our sleeves will stretch comfortably.

Tat Skin Buyer's Guide
Tips for the best Tape adhesion
1. Skin Prep: Your skin should be clean and dry. Completely remove lotion, dirt, oils or excess hair (rubbing alcohol works well). If in humid climate, apply tape indoors to ensure moisture does not interfere with adhesive while it sets. Clip excessive hair to 1/8 long for better adhesion.
2. Time Prep: Apply Tat Skin at least 30 minutes before athletic activity or showering. An hour is optimal.
3. Round All Corners: When cutting Tat Skin make round cuts. Round corners stay on skin longer and reduce fraying of the tape.
4. Remove Backer Paper: Rip the paper on the back of Tat Skin to remove for application. Only remove as needed for application dont touch the sticky side of the Tat Skin tape.
5. Tat Skin Placement: Apply directly to skin (not on other pieces of Tat Skin tape) for stronger and longer lasting applications. Hold down the Tat Skin in place for approximately 10-15 seconds.
6. Activate Adhesive: Use the waxy side of the backer paper to rub vigorously around all areas of the Tat Skin tape. Heat created from this friction rub activates the adhesive.
Tips for best Concealer results
Step One: Cleanse
First things first, you'll want to cleanse the area. Our Tat Skin Botanical Cleanser is a great mild foaming solution that's made with natural ingredients that are perfect for prepping your skin.
Step Two: Moisturize
Apply our Tat Skin Moisturizer to ensure a smooth concealer application. Work it into your skin thoroughly and allow to dry.
Step Three: Apply Concealer
Apply Tat Skin Concealer over your tattoo using our Tat Skin Detail Brush. To get maximum coverage with minimal hassle, you can also "press" the concealer on with a small makeup sponge (don't lift it), rock the sponge gently back and forth. This will evenly apply our concealer onto your skin. You can also use our Tat Skin Blending Brush to fade our concealer around the edges of your tattoo. Let the concealer dry completely before applying additional layers. Reapply as needed using the "Rock and Roll" technique outlined above to achieve complete coverage.
