Patriotic Star Temporary Tattoo The star is a quintessential part of American history. It has represented each American state from when the first flag had 13 stars to the current 50. This temporary tattoo brings that symbol together with the flag itself, into a compact package. It can easily be added as a piece of flare and flash when you celebrate one of our national holidays. While you're cheering out of pride for the nation, the temporary tattoo will show off its broad stripes and bright stars. Through the rockets' red glare on the Fourth and up to a week later, the flag will still be there. It's durable, but removable with rubbing alcohol.
