For several years Marie has been doing temporary tattoos on people at art shows, special events and home parties, using either henna or a temporary ink, both lasting 1-2 weeks.

Henna Temporary Tattoos

Henna has been applied safely to the skin for centuries and is usually associated with ceremonies such as weddings in the Middle East and other rites of passage. Henna is believed to bring protection, luck and blessings along with material and spiritual wealth. The henna paste dyes the skin a rich brown color and lasts 1-2 weeks. contact Marie for a quote on a commissioned piece.

Temporary Ink

Marie hand paints (not airbrushes) the temporary ink on each individual, which allows her to make the tattoo custom in size, style and placement on the body. She uses a black temporary ink which makes the tattoo look very much like a real tattoo, and color can be added if desired. This is a perfect way to experiment with what and where you might want a real tattoo.

Tattoo Home Party

If you want to do something unique, invite 6-8 (or more) of your friends and/or family for a Temporary Tattoo Home Party. Provide the refreshments for your guests, relax and socialize while everyone takes turns getting a custom tattoo. Choose from a large selection of designs and pay just $15.00 for a 3" x 3" area. The hostess receives $25.00 in free tattoo services.
