Freehand glitter tattoos are a skin-safe, waterproof, temporary tattoo. I create them using skin-safe medical-grade adhesive, cosmetic-grade glitter, and special stick-on stencils. Skin must be clean and dry and free of cuts or abrasions. Glue is applied using a squeeze bottle and a cotton swab, then colored glitter is carefully applied using a brush.
Because they last several days, glitter tattoos are for the body, not the face. Glitter tattoos are excellent for younger children because they do not require sitting as still as face painting, and they are dry to the touch as soon as I apply the glitter.
Once complete, the tattoo is easy to care for – you can wear it in the shower, just don’t scrub it! Swimming pools are not recommended as the chemicals may cause the tattoo to dissolve faster. Don’t apply oil or lotion over your tattoo. The tattoo will last for several days, up to a week depending on your skin, the weather, and the tattoo’s location on your body. If needed, you can remove the tattoo completely with rubbing alcohol and a cotton swab.
