Hi everyone, I am starting a face painting business and i want to also do glitter tattoos. I am not sure how much of everything i need to buy, I dont want to buy some stuff and then end up running out after one party, so my question is : for a beginner at glitter tattoos what and how much would you buy? and also any recommendations as to where from would be great (i live in Australia). Thanks everyone SmileSmile

I will buy a $25 kit from silly farm: that is some colors, glue, brushes and stencils and buy some popular stencils as well, then you will know what works, I bought almost every color of glitter and I regret it, specially because the cute pastel colors don't show really good.

Thanks for your reply Smile I am just worried I will run out of stencils in the middle of a party, how long does a 15ml bottle of glitter last? I have a party on sunday that I am doing FP at it has 40 Kids and i was thinking i would do the glitter too, if i can find a suppler with fast shipping hehe.

I have to say the glitter lasts wayyy longer than you think. I do several 4- hour adult ball bookings, a few glitter bellies and a glitter body shoot every month or so and have only had to refill the most popular (for me its silver, purple and bright blue).

But I don't use stencils so my 'normal' glitter tatts are prob over a bigger area but smaller in surface if that makes sense - finer lines and not big flat patches.
