Frequently Asked Questions​​

  1. How long will a glitter tattoo last?
    Unlike face-painting, which only tends to last for a day, a glitter tattoo can last up to 7 days. The life of the tattoo depends on a few things. Areas that are subjected to the friction of shoes, socks, or tight-fitting clothing 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.
  2. How is a glitter tattoo applied?
    Glitter tattoos are a form of body art that we do on-site. 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!!. It is at this point that the recipient is able to tell us exactly where and what colors they would like to design their tattoo with!
  3. Will the tattoo come off if it gets wet?
    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 immediately. We recommend when showering to not scrub the area when you are washing and pat the area dry to avoid friction. It is important to bathe as usual to keep your skin from becoming too oily, which will cause the tattoo to not last as long.
  4. What if I want to take the tattoo off?
    They are very simple to remove. Simply use rubbing alcohol and a washcloth or cotton ball to scrub the tattoo off.
  5. How long does it take to get 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.
  6. Are glitter tattoos safe?
    Yes!!! All products used are FDA approved and hypoallergenic. The glue used to apply the tattoos is a gentle, non-toxic, latex-free cosmetic glue made specifically for use on skin.
