There were no instructions with the tattoo so I’m unsure how to remove it – it’s been 3 days and hasn’t washed off in the shower!

  • I always Remember scrubbing with baby oil as a kid

  • Baby oil for sure

  • Any sort of oil will work, baby oil, olive oil, coconut oil, etc
    Same goes for if you want to remove sticky residue from a label.

  • Baby oil

  • Yep I would go baby oil too, they usually come off pretty easy

  • i use baby oil and it is great at getting things off.

  • Have you tried Nail polish remover on a cotton wool ball? Or rubbing alcohol?

    Hope this helps

  • If it’s water based, I wouldn’t be too worried, it will wear off eventually

  • Any oil based solution should wash off such as baby oil, eucalyptus , tea tree etc… I am surprised soap and water doesn’t do the trick as they are suppose to be easy to come off.

  • I use a face cloth with eucalyptus oil and gently massage the cloth over the tattoo gunk and it comes right off gl mum

  • These seem to take a few dys to come off – I’d jst wait…

  • They recommend using baby oil with cotton wool. Once it off I also go over it with make up remover to get any excess colour out

  • I always use coconut oil and when that not works, eucalyptus or tea tree oil works great.

  • Try using a gentle face cream or, applying a thin layer of almond or olive oil. Let the cream/ oil soak into the skin well for 10 to 15 minutes and wipe off with makeup remover or baby wipes. Works for my little ones.

  • Thanks mom263280 – I’ll give that a go!
