  1. Print out the messages on the tattoo paper and adhere the clear liner on top according to the instructions on the package.
  2. Trim each message as close to the letters as possible.
  3. Peel off the clear liner from one of the messages and lay it face down on top of the balloon, wherever you would like it. NOTE: We recommend not putting your letters within three inches of the edge of the balloon, to ensure they are legible once inflated.
  4. Use a damp paper towel to moisten the tattoo paper completely and then peel it away, leaving the tattoo behind. Repeat as desired.
  5. Inflate the balloon(s) with helium and tie with ribbon.
