DIY Disney Tattoos for Kids

With two curious little boys I was nervous that one of them would get lost in the crowds at Disneyland. They aren't quite old enough to know their phone number, so I decided tattooing it right on them would be the next best thing. I created fun Disney themed tattoos for kids using free images, a little creative wording, and some Silhouette's printable tattoo paper.

Tattoos for Kids

I put the tattoos on the inside of their forearm so my phone number would not be broadcast, but would be there if needed.

Our tattoos for kids read as follows:
  • Lightning McQueen: If I'm driving solo please call...#
  • Finn McMissile: If I made a stealthy getaway, please call #
  • Peter Pan: If I'm a lost boy, please call...#
  • Nemo: If my dad is looking for me, please call #
  • Pirate Mickey: If you found our little treasure call #
Here is the template I used to create tattoos for each day. It used a half sheet of tattoo paper and just printed them right on following package directions.

Wednesdays through January

These are awesome! Now I just need to order some of that tatoo paper for my little guy!

This is the BEST idea. My three year old is just getting into tattoo's. We were going to just write on his arm, but this is a much better option!

A tattoo is a form of body modification, made by inserting indelible ink into the dermis layer of the skin to change the pigment.

Did you use a silhouette to make these or did you just use a printer and scissors? LOVE this idea!!! Thanks so much for sharing :)

These are so cute! I love your boy versions- now to come up with some girly wording for my girly girl! :)

Leslie said...

love these for the boys!
I'm going to make a snow white: "if I'm lost in the woods" and a Rapunzel: ""If I'm a lost princess" for my girly girl! :)

How do I add my phone # to these? Love them!

Wondering how you add your number to your template.

How did the tattoo hold up with sweat, water, rubbing on clothes?

Michelle Barneck said...

@Jillyn You can add the numbers using a program like photoshop or in a free online program like picmonkey. Just upload as a picture and add text.

As for how they held up, I was actually quite surprised how well they wore. My boys are both young and extremely active and they held up through water rides, naps, and all.

I just wanted to thank you for these. I haven't printed them out yet, but I've got the file edited and the tattoo sheets coming in the mail. My 3 year old is a wild man, and these are going to make me feel a little more at ease with him running around Disneyland next week.
