Mibo Tile Tattoos FAQ's

Are Tile Tattoos waterproof?

Yes, the Tile Tattoos are water, heat, and steam proof approximately 36 hours after installation.  However, we do not recommend applying Tile Tattoos in the bottom of a bathtub or sink, as they should not be soaked underwater, but rather can withstand splashes and sprays of water.

 

Where can I use Tile Tattoos?

Use them in a kitchen or bathroom or anywhere you need a stylish alternative to replacing old wall tiles. Hide tired, discolored, or outdated tiles, wake up unimaginative tilework, or help camouflage lightly cracked tiles. Tile Tattoos are not recommended for use on floor tiles or heavily cracked or broken tiles.

 

How much coverage do the Tile Tattoos provide?

The designs printed on white adhesive paper will completely cover your tile, allowing you to hide an unwanted existing design, color, or hairline crack. The translucent backings will allow the tile to show through, creating the effect of a surface design on your tile.

 

What are your suggestions for decorating with the Tile Tattoos?

Create a bold geometric look by placing them diagonally or in a checkerboard pattern.

Place them together in sets of 2’s, 3’s, or 4’s in horizontal or vertical rows to give little bursts of visual interest. Scatter them at random for a fun unstructured look. A few Tile Tattoos go a long way in decorating!

 

How do I know what color is best for my décor?

We suggest choosing a complementary or contrasting color to add to your existing décor, rather than attempting an exact color match. The black or white designs on translucent backing are especially useful in almost any setting. Even mid-century pastel tiles are easily modernized by a touch of black or white surface design.

 

What sizes are available?

Tile Tattoos are available in 4” squares, 6” squares and 3” x 6” rectangles.  These sizes fit the most common tile sizes available. Please note: Both our 4” decals and 4” tiles measure 4.25”, which is the industry standard.

 

What tools do I need for the Tile Tattoo application?

Water and a squeegee or credit card.

 

How do you apply Tile Tattoos?

Clean the tile to which you will apply the sticker, wiping thoroughly to ensure all cleaning agents are removed.  Allow it to dry.  Lightly spray the tile with water. Peel off the decal backing and spritz the sticky side of the Tile Tatto.  Use a squeegee or credit card to smooth out the sticker and remove excess the water. 

 

How do I clean Tile Tattoos?

Once the Tile Tattoos are applied, they may be cleaned with non-abrasive soap and water. To preserve the design, do not use harsh or abrasive chemicals or a scrub brush.

 

Are the Tile Tattoos reusable?

Tile Tattoos are single use only. They are easily removable but not reusable.

 

How do I remove the Tile Tattoos?

Tile Tattoos are designed to stick to a tile surface as long as you need them to, but if your design tastes change, simply peel back a corner of a sticker and remove the Tile Tattoo.  Tile Tattoos do not leave any sticky residue behind.
