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!

Want more real mum questions sent to you?


Ask your question

  • 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!



  • I have always used baby oil to remove temp tattoos on my kids, usually do it in the bath
