How to Apply Metallic Foil Tattoos

Metallic tattoos are sweeping the nation. They can be a fun addition to any face painter's kit, or they can be a unique way to spruce up your look at a holiday party or at the beach as an alternative to traditional jewelry. Add some glam to poolside attire or some pizzazz to a cocktail dress for an upcoming holiday party or wedding. Flash tattoos have been making a splash at music festivals and events due to their durability and shimmering beauty. You can even turn a tee shirt into an outfit with beautiful skin accessories.

If you are looking for some lovely ways to jazz up your skin for both formal and informal events, you should consider temporary metallic foil tattoos. These tattoos are designed to mimic elegant and exotic jewelry and are excellent ways to showcase your great taste and personal style. The tattoos feature gold and silver foils that can be made even more beautiful when combined with colorful temporary tattoo inks. Our metallic foil tattoos utilize safe pigments so you can feel comfortable using them on all skin types.

Styles and Designs

JestPaint offers several different tattoo styles. Both bracelets and necklaces are widely popular and will go well with a variety of clothing items. Shell necklaces, rectangular necklaces and four-petal rose necklaces create a sophisticated bohemian chic look. Geometric and honeycomb bracelets, are crafted to fit neatly around the wrists, however we have seen them worn down the hands or neck to create a beautifully intricate straight line. A broad array of stand-alone tattoos are also available. Butterfly and leafy tattoos might be used to show off your love of nature for an earthy glam look.

Application and Removal

The metallic foil tattoos are quite easy to apply to the skin. After you've cut around the tattoo as close to the border as possible and removed the protecting film, it should be placed on the skin face down and held in its target location for 30 seconds with a damp cloth. Oils and other lubricants should be completely removed from the skin so the tattoo can adhere properly.  Metallic tattoos will last for nearly a week if they are not exposed to lotions, oils or soaps. They can be easily removed with the application of baby oil or olive oil and a bit of scrubbing.

JestPaint uses only products that are completely safe for the skin. Though our metallic tattoos are not toxic, they should not be placed too close to the eyes.

Usage with Other JestPaint Products

Flash tattoos can be combined with other JestPaint products to achieve that glamorous appearance you're looking for. Our temporary tattoo inks offer a chance to create gemstones alongside the gold and silver of your necklace or bracelet. Hand glitter tattoos can also take your personal style to the next level with a glittery henna style. Your friends and family are sure to be thrilled with the results when you join them at the pool, beach or local concert in the weeks ahead.
