A few of your questions answered:
How long should my tattoo last and how can I make it last longer?
Our professionally applied glitter tattoos will stay beautiful for 2-3 days, depending on where you choose to place it and how you care for it afterwards. Here are a few tips to help your tattoo last longer:
- Choose an area on your body that isn’t constricted by clothes or prone to excessive friction, as this will cause the tattoo to rub off prematurely. Also, consider activities that might cause more friction to the area, such as wearing a baseball glove or wrapping a towel around your neck at the gym.
- Do not use body oil near or on the tattoo; this will remove the tattoo. Body oil will release the bonding of the adhesive to your skin.
- Swimming can shorten the length of time your tattoo stays adhered to your skin. A dip in the pool won’t remove your tattoo, but prolonged swimming will. Avoid long soaks in pools or hot tubs.
- You can wash your skin normally while your tattoo is in place, but don’t scrub with exfoliating soaps or products that contain alcohol, oils, or heavy lotions. Keep your tattoo fresh by avoiding that area when you apply these items.
What kind of adhesive and glitter do you use? Are they safe?
We use high-quality adhesive and glitter made especially for tattoos. They are non-toxic, made with cosmetic-grade ingredients and the ingredients are FDA approved. The glitter is NOT craft glitter.
How can I remove my glitter tattoo?
While our glitter tattoos are designed to last several days on most people, it is simple to remove them. Just rub the tattoo with baby oil or rubbing alcohol.
Can young kids get glitter tattoos?
You bet! Anyone can get glitter tattoos, that’s the fun of them! They are fast to apply, are waterproof and dry instantly.
Are your tattoos age-appropriate?
We recognize that many children attend events where our glitter tattoo artists will be working. For that reason, all our tattoo designs are 100% kid-friendly, but not necessarily kiddie style. There are no drug or violent designs. If we do happen to have a design that’s not acceptable for your event we will remove it. Also, our family friendly event policy is tattoo placement must be limited to arms only in order to move the lines along quickly at the 20 tattoos per hour mentioned earlier.
We make every effort to follow parents’ wishes. So even if you’re not at an event your child attends, we’ll be watching out for your kids!
