Hey there! Join me on Instagram and Pinterest to keep up with my most recent projects and sneak peeks! Plus you will get bombed with loads of bright, whimsical and inspiring pics! It’s like an open invitation to the BIGGEST craft party in the world! Have you seen these glitter projects I made?
Today the topic of “convo-sa-chion” (say it like you are in fraannce) is Henna Inspired Body Tattoos. Now I know what you are thinking. Who in the world really wants to parade around wearing a fake tattoo, let alone one completely saturated with glitter… Well folks you are looking at her – or her screen. I am also certain there are TONS of people out there who would like to do this for a fun occasion, birthday party, concert or just a fun weekend out and about. Let’s not forget the KIDS!!!
These are not meant to fool people, y’all! It’s meant for PURE FUN. When I Love to Create sent me this pack I got super giddy inside. Don’t get me wrong I love all the ones they send me but the “henna” inspired pack won over my heart. Check out this really cool blog centered around “Henna”…
You are totally getting excited already huh! Buy YO KIT HERE! I love all of the stencils you get in the package. Just imagine an arm with ALL of them!
- Nontoxic and cosmetic grade
- Glitter tattoo lasts up to 5 days with proper body care
- It’s only $19.99!!!
P to the S… All the the items in the picture below come wrapped up nice and neatly when you buy it. I mean why would they come messy?! (Insert an eye roll to myself)
Step ONE: First things first I’m the realist. You will need to figure out where you want to put your dazzling tattoo.
Step TWO: Make sure to flatten your adhesive sheet onto you skin. We don’t want any wrinkles now do we!
If you notice I have this baby wrapped all the way around my arm and it shows no sign of coming off. The sheets are super sticky so they will conform to any part of the body, even those hard to get spots. (I feel like that last sentence is from a commercial but I can’t think of what. Leave a comment below if you know!)
Step THREE: Apply the body glue over the spots where you will be putting the yummy glitter. I know I don’t have a darn picture of me applying the glue. Shame on me, hehe! Let me warn you now, this glue is really strong, it’s cosmetic grade!
Step FOUR: Time to grab the small detailing brush and start splashing or dabbing glitter all over your glue. You will see once you start applying glitter how great it works.
(Let me just tell you this…I tried to rinse my tattoo off a few hours later with soap and water and it would not come off! I literally had to scrub my arm. So it’s good if you want it for a few days)
If you plan on doing this on small kids you could use a little alcohol to help get it off.
Step FIVE: Once you applied the glitter time to gently pull off your adhesive sheet. Please take your time, I’d hate for you to tear your beautiful sheet.
Next, brush off the excess glitter with your large dusting brush. VOILA Y’ALL!
I hope you enjoyed this fun tutorial. Please stay tuned this week I have some fun projects lined up! You can’t lie these glitter tattoos are calling your name! I knowwwww….
Big ole CAJUN hugs from my computer to yours!!!
