Charities Wanting Face Painters For Free!

Charities Wanting Face Painters For Free!
Got this enquiry today. Can you see what is wrong with it? The event is happening on Halloween. But they are calling it their Christmas Fair. Halloween - one of the only dates of the year facepainters get the chance to actually earn some money.....

"We are looking for a face painter who can attend the Christmas Fair and offer face painting for our guests.  There would be a charge of £250 for the table hire and this would include having flyers on our sponsor table and **************  would help to promote you amongst their discerning ********parents.  Any fee for face painting would be donated to charity.  We expect well over 250 through the door on the day, as the event starts at 10am and finishes at 6pm".

So  let me get this straight. A face painter is needed to work for 9 hours, fork out £250 and then give all the  money they earn to the charity??? hmmmmm!!!!

Airbrush Tattoos with a whiff of perfume

Press  ReleaseAirbrush Tattoos 26 March 2013 

Tattoos used to be for Rock Stars, bikers and musicians. Now our sports personalities are getting TATS, latest being Lionel Messi with his sons hands tattooed on his leg.  This year also saw Wimbledon tennis players give us a glimpse of what was under their tennis whites. What if you could have a tattoo that looks like the real thing?  Your design and no pain? Cheryl Cole’s Roses which could have been removed after the Girls Aloud tour? Temporary airbrush tattoos are being used more and more as a “try before you buy”. Getting your own design inked, gives customers the chance to truly feel the excitement of have a TAT. They last for days, even after you shower. They are safe, waterproof and non-toxic. Strawberry Studios are now offering a temporary airbrush tattoo that can be applied with your scent. Think Chanel logo with the aroma of perfume? Julie Android of Strawberry Studio said, the idea came from “scratch and sniff”. 

 A creative idea for promotional branding, TAT’s are the ultimate in creating awareness. A strong marketing tool, which draws crowds at trade fairs, exhibition, parties and events. Companies looking to leave a lasting impression are choosing Temporary Airbrush Tattoos. A walk in tattoo parlour will be set up at some of the UK’s prestigious events.  Football badges as tattoos will be at some of the largest sporting events in 2013. Human branding was once used as a form of torture during the middle ages. 

A considerable less painful version is now considered a form of body art, a walking advertisement which has a lasting impression! Usually up to 5 days! With a whole host of our favourite celebs already covered in body art, the new trend is for a more temporary, less painful version. Gaultier called it his “extensions of the fabric” when his models paraded down the Spring 2012 catwalk showing temp tattoos. 

 TAT’s are applied, in minutes, by airbrushing ink on to a re-useable stencil, which is previously laser cut from the design.  In the case of Messi and his sons hands. An image is captured, traced and laser cut into a re-useable stencil.  Strawberry Studio has over 400 different designs. They will attend your party or event as part of the entertainment. 

Unlike henna, they can also be removed instantly with alcohol You will find Julie Android this coming Friday 29 and Saturday 30 April, giving free tattoos with the scent of Paco Rabanne Black XS in Debenhams, Birmingham Bull Ring Centre

Airbrush Tattoos with aroma?

Posted on 28 April, 2012 at 10:13 Comments comments (79)
Yes thats right..temporary airbrush tattoos can now be sprayed with the scent of your  product.  The first product launch will be for Paco Rabanne at Debenhams stores. His and hers ink will have the scent of the wonderful BlackXS perfume for men and women. The tattoo ink when dry locks in the scent even after washing.  It is truly amazing. A logo tattoo with the scent is definately a must at any new product launch!! Have a look here

How long have Temporary Airbrush Tattoos been around?

How long have Temporary Airbrush Tattoos been around?

Temporary airbrush tattoos have been in existence since about 1998 and are largely used in marketing, advertising and the entertainment industry. Because of the constant research and development of airbrush equipment and inks, airbrush tattoos today so closely resemble real tattoos that many people cannot tell the difference

What Are Temporary Airbrush Tattoos (TAT's)?

Posted on 5 January, 2012 at 9:01 Comments comments (174)
There seems to still be some confusion as to what exactly TAT's are. 

Relatively new to the Uk but been around in Australia and the States for years!  Temporary Airbrush Tattoos are a non permanent image on the skin resembling a real tattoo.  They are airbrushed on to a stencil which is placed on to any part of the body.  The skin can be previously cleaned with surgical spirits to remove any  naturarl oils or creams. This makes the tattoo last longer.  Each tattoo, depending on the skin type can last from 2 to 7 days and takes minutes to apply! Can also be removed instantly with surgical spirits.

The ink is alcohol based and consists of cosmetic and food grade ingredients. all approved by the FDA which makes it safe and non-toxic.  It is not a dye like Henna as it sits on the skin as opposed to dying the layers of skin. Shellac is also in the ink which makes it quick drying and gives the tattoo a waterproof coating. Never has there been a report of any allergic reaction to the ink, however nothing is ever 100% safe, going outside for some can cause certain allergic reactions.

Once applied, the tattoo is dusted down with a fine powder, usually talc, or a fine glitter.

Water, sweat and clothing will  not rub the tattoo off unless the tattoo has been place at the waistband of trousers or under a bra strap which will almost certainly speed up the removal.

If an airbrush tattoo artist has more than one gun then more than one colour can be applied.

Airbrush artists have hundreds of designs to choose from, however with a good jpeg or vector image, a re-usable stencil can be lazer cut and also offered as a personal design, promotion or product launch. These are great when used on promotional staff, however the general public would prefer to choose from the designs available, of which there are plenty to suit everyone.
