Hanzo Cosplay Tattoo Sleeve


Shipping to United States: Free

On a difficulty scale of 1 to 10, this tattoo is an 11 to apply. However, it's absolutely gorgeous if done correctly! It comes in 5 pieces that need to be puzzled together on your skin. It's approximately 21" long, and 16" wide at it's widest point. These measurements exclude the part of the tattoo that extends over the chest. I cannot make the tattoo any bigger without doubling the price, as I've maxed out my printing area on each sheet. If the tattoo is too big for you, it can be cut down to size once it arrives. (I had to cut its width to fit my small-ish forearms.)

Turnaround takes me 5 business days before shipping. Domestic shipping takes an additional 1-5 business days, depending on the method you select.

Seventh Skin tattoos are made to LAST once put on the skin, so removal of such large pieces can be difficult. Be gentle with your skin, and follow the directions carefully during application and removal. Leave plenty of time (30 min or more) for both. The longer you wear your tattoos, the easier they will be to remove. If cared for properly, this sleeve will last well for 2-4 full days of convention wear, and will then start to fade.

As with all our large pieces, some cracking where your skin flexes is normal during wear. Wearing a light, long sleeved shirt when you sleep will help your tattoo last longer.

When applying, have someone help you! Once the pieces are arranged on your arm and chest, start using the damp cloth on the seams first, and work your way outward.

The very best lotion I've found for my tattoos is called Silk Hydration by Hawaiian Tropics. Have some translucent powder on hand, too.

I may have arranged and formatted this tattoo, but the concept is (obviously) not my own. This character has become a celebrated cosplay staple, and I wanted to make a quality item available to you die-hard cosplay artists out there! Publicly released character details were used when creating this sleeve.

Frequently Asked Questions

Custom and personalized orders

I am currently swamped with filling regular orders, and cannot accommodate requests for large, detailed pieces. (Chest pieces, sleeves, intricate tattoos, etc.)

However, simple graphic or text-based designs are possible! Message me if you're interested.

Care instructions

Check your tattoo for bubbles that may have formed during shipping.
If any are present, press them out.

Pick a location. Shave first.

Wash and dry your hands and skin.

Remove the plastic backing slowly from your tattoo.
Don’t touch the adhesive. Take your time.

Line up your tattoo (carefully!) and press it firmly against your skin.

Wet a washcloth and press firmly in the center of the tattoo, working

When the paper is fully saturated, lift a corner of the paper and roll it back against the design.
Let it dry for a few moments.

Moisturize with oil-free lotion.

Apply translucent cosmetic powder lightly with a soft brush or puff to your tattoo. This will help matte out the design and add realism.

Additional Tips & Tricks

Buy a backup. At worst you have to remove an "oops" and try again. At best, you have a spare for a later date!

Don’t rush application!

Designs last longest on shins and inside forearms.
They do not last long on hands, fingers, shoulders or necks.

Don't use baby powder if you don't want chalky ink.

Anti-chafing powder gel is awesome.

Straps and sweat are your tattoos' worst enemies.

Profuse sweat has nowhere to go.If this happens, you can CAREFULLY
perforate the tattoo, and/or wick the moisture out by hand.

The tattoos are water-resistant, but avoid exposure to heat and moisture.

Tan lines can happen.

Washing daily with mild soap before powdering is recommended.
Always let your tattoo air dry.

Removing a tattoo

Soak in a luxurious warm bath for a while and then
use one of the following:

1) A high-percentage Isopropyl Rubbing Alcohol and cotton balls.

2) Coconut Oil. Apply generously, wait 5 minutes, and rub gently.

3) Baby Oil. Apply generously, wait 5 minutes, and rub gently.

4) Medical adhesive remover can be purchased at some drug stores and online. It works quickly and gently.

May I ink these designs permanently?

I consider this request a highest compliment!

After purchase, Seventh Skin prints and temporary tattoos may ABSOLUTELY be taken to a tattoo artist if you would like to have a design inked permanently.

Please send me photos of the finished piece so I may brag about it forever.

Do not leave my artwork with the artist to tattoo on other clients, please.
