Hi, I am have just started my face painting business and wanted to add glitter tatoos to my services. I am having trouble deciding what kit to buy and from which site.

Any suggestions for a reasonably priced small to medium size kit (like 50-100 tats)?

IMO, the best starter kit is from Signature Glitter. I have kits from Amerikan Body Art, DFX and Glimmer...I prefer the Signature one.

He he he I wasn't sure if I was allowed to post the link or not. I just bought 14 pounds of glitter from her. Got tired of always being worried about running out if i had a few big events in a row. I love her style of poof bottles, they stay looking nice, clean and professional after lots of use. I have 2 kits from her. Smile

Thanks guys! Very Happy

I contacted them to ask a few questions about the kit. I wanted to know the glue they used. They said the kit comes with graftobian glue.

Never heard of it. Is it any good?

As a starter kit, as mentioned, it is the best. Having said that, once I got rolling and made $$, I prefer glimmer glue. When you start, this is the best bang for the buck, the glue works perfectly fine, but only you will be able to figure out over time which application method works for you. For me, all of the glues that I have tried work the same...it is the application methods that vary. Only experience will give you that knowledge.
Flying Laughter...will you be at Kapital Kidvention? I am happy to bring my stuff and let you play with it.

Bekah...it sounds like alot of money to buy a kit...but if you look at it...once you do a few tats, it is pure profit. I charge $8 per tat...so after approx 20 tattoos, my kit is paid for, and I am in the red..green...??? Whatever colour profit is. LOL

It does sound like a good investment... I will go for it, but I just can't bring myself to pay so much in one go! Haha

When I have a bit more money I'll go for it... Once I've got the car fixed...

You are right though, they seem popular too!

Tats aren't hugely popular here...but they have totally saved my bacon at PPF events where it rains all weekend. I made some $$ rather than zero if it were face paint only.

I'll be getting my first glitter tattoo kit sometime in the next couple of months. I'm going to train my daughter to do them, and give her that part of the business.
Not ready to invest in equipment to make my own stencils, yet. I'm just not sure what's the best deal. I have saved several sites that I know sells them, and was planning to get a starter kit from Glimmer Body Art, but they stopped selling the kit I had my eye on. At least Silly Farm still has it. Hopefully, by the time I have the money (income tax refund) it'll still be there.

I bought my Kit from Glittertainment. I got the 3rd level kit but they do have a starter kit for $150 and all their kits come with carry cases so great for setup and travel Smile
