Instant stickers and temporary tattoos

If you are not so great with hand drawing or don’t have too much confidence of your painting skill, or lack the make-up-like skin-friendly materials for face paint you may want to consider using stylish stickers and temporary water-based tattoos. These are easy to apply and remove later.

Football tattoos like the one below will only cost a couple of dollars. For example this Russia country flags tattoo, or sexy body tattoo which is just temporary. Very hot sticker in our opinion.

Supporting your football team with body paint?

Do you wanna go all in? Have a bucket of paint laying around at home? Go full-body paint! It will be time-consuming and probably be going to make a lot of mess but it might worth it – you have then maximized your chances to get the camera’s attention at a live event.

Football tattoos or extreme hair cut maybe? Or is that too much?

Some super devoted fans are even doing crazy tattoos – well we hope not on their face – to show support for their beloved football World Cup team. Just remember – you cannot wash these off once the match is over LoL.
