There are very simple, 30-second application instructions on the back of each tattoo. All you need is a wet washcloth.
Peel the plastic cover off the tattoo. Place the tattoo face down where you want to affix it. Wet it thoroughly with a washcloth, applying a little pressure as you do it, and then peel the paper off. IF YOU ARE WEARING THE TATTOOS WHERE CLOTHES MAY RUB, BE SURE TO WASH THEN WITH SOAP AND WATER AND PAT DRY UNTIL THE SURFACE HAS NO STICKINESS.
How do the Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ Work?
According to the research of Masura Emoto, words on water change the molecular structure of water. The average human body is approximately 55-70% water and all humans have seven key energy centers (called “chakras”) that reside vertically along the spine.
Vicki Howie, found that when she put an actual root chakra tattoo on her root chakra, its energy increased markedly and her finances and stability improved too. She created Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ to work the same way.
What do the chakra tattoos mean and how can they help me?
Here is a summary description of what each tattoo means:
1st (Red) – Boosts the energy surrounding your grounding, general health, basic financial stability, career, family and home.
2nd (Orange) – Boosts the energy surrounding your sexuality, emotions, creativity, adaptability, intimate relations, and ability to reproduce.
3rd (Yellow) – Boosts the energy surrounding your personal identity, confidence, ability to take action, will power, digestion, and mental clarity.
4th (Green) – Boosts the energy surrounding your love, compassion, relationships, openness, breath, healing abilities and immune system.
5th (Blue) – Boosts the energy surrounding your personal expression, truth, artistry, communication with others and life purpose.
6th (Indigo) – Boosts the energy surrounding your intuition, psychic abilities, imagination, clear perspective, ability to visualize, and appreciation of beauty.
7th (Violet) – Boosts the energy surrounding your awareness, intelligence, and all aspects of your connection to Spirit.
What are some of the sensations I might feel while wearing my chakra tattoos?
First, because we are approximately 55% - 70% water, and fluids circulate throughout the body, it is actually possible to put a Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoo™ anywhere on the body and get a boost.
Still, the recommended placement for maximum benefit is right on the spot on your body where the chakra itself “resides” (see below for a slightly adjusted recommendations for the 6th and 7th Chakra Booster Healing Tattoos).
You can see the placement in this photo of Chakras 1-5 (root through throat).
1st Chakra/Root (Red) goes at the lowest point on the spine. You can also put two on the front body – one on the top of each thigh – for a super-grounding experience.
2nd Chakra/Sacral (Orange) goes on the sacral plexus. You can feel and/or see the sacral indents on the lower back. Place the tattoo in that area. Note: it’s okay if the first and second chakra tattoos overlap a bit, since the first chakra tattoo cannot be placed as low as would be ideal (near perineum). On the front body, the second chakra tattoo goes just below the belly button.
3rd Chakra/Solar Plexus (Yellow) goes on the solar plexus. This is the “core” area right below the divide of the front ribs. For the proper placement on the back, use the front as a guide, and put it directly behind the solar plexus.
4th Chakra/Heart (Green) goes on the heart center in front and in back.
5th Chakra/Throat (Blue) goes on the middle of the neck in back, and is not recommended for the front – the neck is too soft and uneven in front. It you really want to place a 5th tattoo on the front, you can put it high up on the chest, above the sternum.
What’s the best placement for the 6th and 7th Chakra Tattoos?
6th Chakra/Brow (Indigo) goes on the “third eye” just above and between the brows. This tattoo can look quite unusual, when affixed, so we recommend that you “wear it” at night without any water affixing it. This also means you can re-use it!
Here’s how: peel off the plastic cover, and place the third eye chakra tattoo directly on the brow area. It will stick well, and you can sleep with it like that. In the morning, peel it off and put it inside a zip lock bag, face-down on the plastic. With this kind of temporary application, you do not use water. If you keep your skin free of oils, you should be able to use it 7-10 times.
7th Chakra/Crown (Violet) can only go on the crown (it’s true location) if you are bald. A good, alternative is to place it on the “high heart” in back. This is the area right between the fourth and fifth chakras. Remember, you can place the crown chakra (or any other) tattoo anywhere on the body, and still experience positive results.
Is there a difference if I put my tattoos on the front versus the back of my body?
Yes, there is. Generally speaking, the front body relates to the future and moving forward, whereas the back body relates to the past and healing old wounds.
If you want to heal something from your past, put the related tattoo on your back body. In general, it’s good to begin with the back and then move to the front.
Here are two examples:
Heart Chakra – if you’re grieving a past relationship or have trust issues, put a Heart Chakra tattoo on the back of your heart to heal. If you feel pretty clear about your past love relationships, then put one on the front to express more love and move into your future love relationships.
Solar Plexus Chakra – If you’re dealing with low self-esteem from childhood, put it on the back to heal. If you feel okay about your past, but want more confidence and action moving forward (like you have a big presentation coming up), then put it on the front.
Can I wear my tattoos on the front and back at the same time?
Absolutely. We highly recommend it. It’s a more complete boost when your wear them on front and back at the same time.
How many tattoos can I wear at once?
We have received considerable customer feedback on this subject, and the consensus is clear: try only one or two tattoos at first. Many customers who put 4 – 7 tattoos on right from the start reported feeling “overwhelmed” by the energy.
Putting all seven tattoos on at once can result in too much new energy moving through the system. Wearing all seven tattoos is ideal, but you need to gradually build up to that.
Can I shower while wearing my tattoos?
Yes. They’re waterproof, but don’t scrub them, as they do wear-off from friction or rubbing of any kind.
How long will my tattoos last?
If you want in depth information on how to make your tattoos last longer, read this article.
Regular Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos typically last between 3-7 days depending on activity, skin type, and the state of a given chakra. On rare occasions when all factors (described below) were strong, we have witnessed certain tattoos last as long as 12 days.
There are many factors that will affect the longevity of all Chakra Boosters tattoos. They typically last longer on darker skin than on fair skin, due to pigment in the skin. They also last longer on stronger chakras because of the energetic magnetism. When a chakra is extremely weak, the tattoo may even peel off directly after application (but we find this happens very rarely – less than 1% of the time).
Some tattoos wear-off more quickly, because they’re rubbed by clothing. Rough clothing like jeans, or elastic bands like those of a bra strap, create the most wear. Regular showers will not affect the durability of your tattoos, but taking long baths -- especially with any kind of bath oils!! -- will definitely shorten their life span.
How do I remove my tattoos?
The tattoos naturally wear-off over time, but when they are partially gone, and you want to remove them completely (because partially remaining symbols are not effective or attractive), you can simply put a little baby oil on a cotton ball and rub them off. We unfortunately have not found another oil that does as good of a job for tattoo removal. Some folks use mineral oil. Please let us know if you find a good removal oil you really like.
What are the tattoos made of?
Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos are manufactured in the United States and are FDA approved. They are made from vegetable-based inks and safe, band-aid type adhesives.
Do I need to do anything in particular for my tattoos to work?
No. Chakra Boosters Healing Tattoos™ work on their own, with no conscious effort on your part. They even work while you sleep.
Still, if you want to add conscious intention, that’s great. Positive focus always aids healing. And other healing tools like stones, aromatherapy, mantras, yoga poses, etc, can be used in conjunction with our tattoos.
