How long will a glitter tattoo last?
Unlike face-painting, which only tends to last for a day, a glitter tattoo will last anywhere from 3-7 days. I have also had customers tell me their tattoo lasted for weeks. The life of the tattoo depends on a few things. Friction and glitter tattoos do not go well together. Areas that are subjected to the friction of shoes, socks, or tight-fitting clothes may cause the tattoo to rub off sooner than the 7 days. Another factor in the length of time a tattoo will last is the amount of oil in your skin. People with drier skin tend to have their tattoos last longer than the 7 days.
How is a Glitter Tattoo applied?
Glitter tattoos are a form of body art that we do on-site. They are created right there before your eyes. We will have the customer pick out which design that they would like to have. We use a vinyl stencil applied to the skin. We then apply a 100% hypoallergenic surgical skin glue over the stencil. We then remove the stencil and wait for the glue to dry. As the glue dries, it disappears, and then we are ready to glitter!! This becomes the tricky part, but my glitter fairies make it look like a breeze. It is at this point that you or your customer is able to tell us exactly where and what colors they would like to design their tattoo with! It is an amazing process to see and it is even more amazing to see how creative our customers get with their tattoos!!!
Will the tattoo come off if I swim or when I take a shower?
You can still swim and shower normally with a glitter tattoo. In fact we have done many tattoos poolside, and the recipients were able to jump in the pool as soon as we were done applying the tattoo. We recommend when showering to not scrub the area when you are washing. We also recommend when you are drying off from a shower or time in the pool, to just pat the area dry to avoid friction. We recommend still showering as usual, to keep your skin from becoming too oily, which will cause the tattoo to not last as long.
Am I going to have glitter all over my house if I get a glitter tattoo?
Surprisingly no! The glitter will only stick to the areas which have had glue applied. The glitter tattoos are immediately safe to touch without fear of any excess glitter falling off.
Are glitter tattoos safe?
Yes!!! The glue used to apply the tattoos is a gentle, non-toxic, latex-free cosmetic glue made specifically for use on skin.
How long does it take to apply a tattoo?
It only takes us a few minutes to apply the tattoo, but we will make sure we take our time so that it comes out perfect. We do not apply tattoos in an assembly line fashion, so it may take longer than having your face painted, but we feel it is worth the time spent since our designs last for so long.
Can I have more than one color in my tattoo?
For sure! We have 30 colors to choose from, so there are many color combination's you can choose for your design.
Do you offer any other types of tattoos?
We sure do.
UV tattoos are a great addition to any black light party! The wonderful thing about the UV tattoos, is that they still look great without the use of a black light. Without black light, the colors of the tattoo are neon, and with the use of black light, the colors of the tattoo will glow.
Can I have a combination of the different types of tattoos?
Most definitely. We can be as creative as you would like to be with your tattoo! You just let us know how you want it to look, and we will make it happen for you.
