Great to add some temporary glitz and lasting around 7 days, these are a favourite with girls. They can be stencilled or free hand and involve applying a specialist body glue to cleansed skin and adding a selection of glitters (23 different colours to choose from). Stencils available (choice of 49) include flowers, hearts, animals, words etc. Removal – rub baby oil into tattoo and soak off. Alternatively they can be removed with alcohol wipes.
Using specialist ‘For Now’ body inks, a wide range of stencils is available (including tribal, Japanese, butterflies, animals etc). The inks are EU and FDA approved and can be removed easily and immediately should there be a reaction. 2 colours per tattoo look effective. To extend the life dust with a little powder and on bathing pat dry and do not rub. Removal – these will scrub off in the bath or if you apply body oil or lotion, sun cream etc.
Can be painted on freehand. Not to be used on sensitive skin or on under 5’s. A patch test can be done. Removal – with rubbing alcohol
A great way to check if you would like a permanent tattoo and great in the summer. Pure Henna leaves a brown/orange stain on the skin. It takes around an hour to dry but should be left to fall off naturally. It will deepen in colour over 48 hours and can last 2-6 weeks. It can also be used with body glue and glitter to add sparkle.
We do not use Black Henna which is often used in the Mediterranean. This contains a chemical additive PPD to make it black and can result in wide spread allergic reactions and burns.
