NEWS FLASH: If you saw the recent article: "FDA warns consumers about dangers of temporary tattoos"
It brings up very valid concerns as follows:
The Jist of the article is henna tattoo ink that has been supplemented with various non skin friendly chemicals to darken or lengthen the durability of the henna inks.
Ask your body painting artist if she is a member of the World Body Painting Association. One of the things we do is educate ourselves on professional products that are designed SPECIFICALLY to be safe for skin.
One of our CREEDS states: We do not use anything on the skin, face or hair that could in any way harm the person. If it was not designed specifically for use on skin, hair or face we are not going to use it.
Now ... that being said there are the greedy opportunists that jump into any fad that is making money and to make a quick buck they will do anything at all including put others in harms way.
Choose your artist carefully like with anything do a little research an educated consumer is the best equipped consumer.
I am a committed artist and anything I put on your skin is designed and created and tested and FDA approved to be used on skin. Many of my paints are even safe to put on a babies skin. I will not put you or your children in harms way, ever.
In fact this brings me to my final point, you get what you pay for; if you are getting dirt cheap prices you might be getting cheap paint from who knows where Michael's sells acrylic paint for $5.00 a tube but it is not designed for skin.
My paints, skin sweat sealers, sealers and skin adhesives even the body glitter is make up grade ... are all moderately to very expensive. My prices in part reflect what I have to pay for products that keep you safe and me in good standing with my peers and the World Body Painting Association and my clients whom of which about 1/4 of them are children.

Craig Tracey <- really influenced me I totally adore him and his encouragement and advice. Mark Reid and John Neyrot I have taken private lessons from both artists. Local artist Leroy Roper has also given me great advice. Joanne Gair and her amazing body art blow me out of the water. There are many body painting artists that I really admire their works and who they are as a person. I strive to constantly improve and climb higher in artistic skills.
What to Expect
Typical Gig Duration: 10 - 360 minutes
I show up on time set up a professional table or booth depending on size of event and deliver great body art per our agreed upon requests.
Running water, electricity
I need time to create, many a time I have found that clients do not fully understand what goes into body painting. Depending on what I am painting there is often days and days to weeks worth of practicing and prepping to get a theme to look right I might paint something entirely many many times before I get to your day and I paint it on you. Art classes for realism, technique classes with my tools, studying and researching lighting or how cloth falls in different ways. I don't just show up and spray you with paint cans as one client told me as she was justifying why she showed up an hour late for her session, "you're just gonna spray me with paint cans you don't need all that time." Ummm wow.... o.k. So there is a great deal of behind the scenes work that clients do not see. I research reference materials for my reference picture or I create a brand new one and use that as my reference. Making sure the colors are correct, if there is any additional ordering for costume or special FX's prosthetics etc etc .... skin pre prep, applying body paint, skin post prep afterwards there is an art to this art!
I book many types of events: kids parties, adult parties, football game parties, tail gate parties, private events, public events, festivals, face painting gigs, promotional model painting, replicating clothing or product logos like alcohol bottle labels, I book charity fund raisers and can make custom stencils with your event or company logo. Sky is the limit really.
