It is possible to make custom temporary tattoos at home through a variety of methods, including purchasing a temporary tattoo kit with paper that can be printed with a home printer. Those who do not have a printer at home can try other methods, including ordering custom tattoos from a temporary tattoo company.

There are other ways to get the effect of a temporary tattoo without actually using the stick-and-peel temporary tattoo method. For example, homemade or nontoxic body or face paint can be used safely on the skin and will wash off according to package directions, allowing for a temporary design to be painted on the skin.
