What’s the best way to apply an EXTRA LARGE Temporary Tattoo?

Grab a friend to help if you can, but the easiest way to apply one of our Extra Large Tattoos is to cut the tattoo into smaller sections and to then apply it section-by-section, similar to a puzzle. Try to make cuts in open space (if available) through the design. Avoid cuts directly through the tattoo artwork for best results and minimal overlays.
