Glitter Tattoos are a wonderful add on to a special day. With a wide range of designs and colour combinations the finish product is completely personal.
It is always a unique experience.
The tattoos themselves with proper care can last for up to 7 days if not longer. This has proven to be a popular choice at birthday parties instead of a party bag. The child goes home with a hand chosen design in the colours of their choice.
At events this can go down very well also as the tattoo is waterproof after 30 mins of applying, so if the weather is not in our favour and they prefer not to be painted a tattoo can be offered. Parents also get that value for money as will not disappear at bath time :)
Due to the restrictions set by our Public Liability Insurance provider I cannot and will not place a tattoo on anyone's face and never a child's neck. This is standard practice for most glitter tattoo artists.
Caring for your Tattoo
Properly cared for tattoos will last approximately 3 to 7 days, depending on the skin type and where the design is placed. They last longer on dry skin than on oily skin and they won’t last as long if they get rubbed by your clothing. For best results, your skin should be clean, dry, and free of oils or moisturizers before application. To prolong the life of your tattoo, wash it gently with a mild soap and NO cloth. Pat, DO NOT RUB, the area dry.
How to remove a Glitter Tattoo
To remove glitter tattoo apply baby oil or lotion on the skin and spread it on the area. Massage around the area for about 1-3 minutes. This is to make sure that the area is smooth and lubricated already. Then get a tiny towel and wipe the area. You can use tissue or cloth if you don’t have a towel. You might need to put a little bit of force while taking it off. Also glitter designs can be taken off anytime with a babywipe, alcohol wipe or a good scrub with soap and water.
Another thing our tattoo artist has noticed is that rubbing in the anti-bacterial gel into the design can help remove quickly
