Why are they called wall tattoos?

Wall tattoos are a huge interior design trend. The material used is a thin vinyl which lays itself so close onto the wall that it looks like painted or "tattooed" onto it. Wall tattoos are also known as wall stickers, interior wall decals, wall art or vinyl stickers.

Can I stick a wall tattoo on other smooth surfaces such as windows, doors, tiles and cupboards?

Yes, you can! A general rule: The smoother the surface, the better it sticks!

On smooth surfaces, interior wall decals will last longer and stick better than on rougher/coarse surfaces. They also stick very well on glass or mirrors.

If you are not sure, if the surface is smooth enough, then apply a free test sticker first. You will get one with every decal ordered, or you just ask us for a free sample before you order.

You can even stick wall tattoos onto your car. But be aware that due to weather conditions, sunlight, etc. the wall decal lasts only about 5 years on your car.

Which material is used for the wall tattoos?

Our wall decals are made of a soft, very thin high-quality vinyl with a matte surface. They last at least 5 years, but can be removed at any time.

Can the colours of the wall decals differ from the colours shown on the website?

Yes, due to the settings on your pc screen they might differ a bit in colour. If you are in doubt, then before ordering a wall decal from us, just ask us for a test sticker.

Can I apply my wall tattoo on freshly painted walls?

You should wait at least 8 days until the walls are completely dry, before you stick on your vinyl wall decal.

Do I have to prepare the surface before applying my wall decal?

The wall should be clean and the wall paint should be dry (if freshly painted, wait at least 10 days before the application). Shiny surfaces (glass or mirror) should be free of dust and oiliness. A preparation with window cleaner is enough. You achieve a better adhesion if you warm the wall with a hairdryer before the application of your wall decal.

How do I avoid bubbles?

Make sure that on smooth surfaces the wall decal doesn´t form bubbles. Especially if it is a big wall tattoo get someone to help you with the application. Apply the tattoo slowly and follow the application guide carefully.

If you have air bubbles in between the vinyl and the wall, use a thin needle and make a tiny hole into the vinyl. Not into the bubble itself, but next to it. Squeeze the air carefully towards, and then through this hole.

Can I separate designs and apply the parts individually?

Yes, you can cut the wall decals and apply them on a wall individually.

Can the wall stickers be removed?

Yes, they can be removed, but not reused. With every ordered decal you get a free test sticker, so you can see how well it sticks on your wall and how it can be removed.

How do I remove a wall tattoo?

To remove the wall decal, we advise to warm the sticker with a hairdryer. Make sure the hairdryer is not too hot. Lift a corner of the wall sticker and pull it slowly in a flat angle off the wall.
