Temporary Tattoo Parlour
A family member had a carnival themed birthday party for her little girl over the weekend. I was asked to run a face painting booth. I had never done any face painting before (unless you count the loads of experimental make-up I put on as a pre-teen) and it was quite the experience! I must say, I have new found respect for face painters. It isn’t easy to get a young child to stay still when there is so much going on around them. Professionals deserve their title. I am, however, in favour of an alternative.
The alternative to face painting would be the temporary tattoo parlour. My favourite choice is Tina Roth Eisenberg’s Tattlys. Sure, you could pick some temps up at your local dollar store but won’t compare in visual awesomeness or safety. “We here at Tattly are proud to say all our products are made in the U.S. with vegetable-based inks which are FDA compliant. Safety is very important to us. All of our Tattlys are non-toxic and safe for anyone to wear. We make sure every Tattly meets all U.S. and international regulatory requirements. We’ve also made sure Tattlys meet safety standards for both cosmetic and toy product industries”. They are vegan friendly!
A pair of individual designs costs $5.00 USD. The cost effective way to go is to pick up a Tattly set for $15.00 USD (comprised of 8 Tattlys) or a set of 12 for $25.00 USD. I know there are some parents out there thinking these are expensive but I’m a big believer in quality over quantity in all aspects of ones life.
Be seeing you.
