We have been providing caricature, airbrushed tattoo, face painting, henna, and airbrushed t-shirt artists to theme parks, water parks, zoos, and events since 1994 and have literally drawn, airbrushed, and painted thousands of our products all across the country. At Big Time, "We CREATE the Fun!"
We take our funny business very seriously! Our caricatures are drawn with art marker on 11 x 14" acid-free, 110 lb. illustration paper which is suitable for framing. We include a gag body and background relating to any theme, sport, hobby, career etc. that your guests can think of. Provide a few laughs and a few caricatures for your guests to take home with them. Each artist can draw about 10-14 faces w/ bodies an hour.
-Airbrushed Temporary Tattoos
Let your guests get a little wild and express themselves at your next event. An airbrushed temporary tattoo will allow them to do just that, but without the pain or lifelong commitment! Safe for everyone -- we use non-toxic, Hollywood special-effects make-up to "ink" our catalog of over 200 original designs. Our tattoos are completely waterproof and will last 3-5 days or more! Can't wait that long? No problem. Your guests can simply remove their tattoo at any time using lotion or rubbing alcohol. Each artist can airbrush 25-30 designs an hour.
The word is in - kids love face painting! A guaranteed hit at any event, this classic party staple will delight kids of all ages. You'll like that our face paint is safe, since we only use non-toxic paint suitable for a child's skin. Our face paintings last all day or can be easily removed at any time with soap and water. Each artist can paint 20-25 faces an hour
Over 9,000 years old, henna has been applied as a cosmetic and was known to be used by the ancient Egyptian queen Cleopatra to decorate her skin and hair. Henna is applied as a paste in intricate patterns on the skin. When the paste is removed, the resulting red stain is known as mehndi. The natural red coloring of mehndi is applied for many celebrations including birthdays, holidays, and before marriage. Mehndi is a show of wealth and beauty which brings good luck to the wearer. Our henna contains only natural ingredients and DOES NOT contain chemical additives, PPD black hair dye, preservatives, chemical dyes, or nut derivatives. Designs will typically last 7-10 days or more. Each artist can apply 10-14 designs an hour.
A mobile custom t-shirt factory at your event! Allow your guests to select and customize one of our stock designs from our catalog and then sit back and watch as their creation is painted for them in minutes.
