The Best Themes for Parties and Tattoos Kids Will Go Crazy About

The logical flow here is that you will select the type of party or event that you would like to have for your child and the tattoos the kids get will follow. As such, we find it fitting to discuss the most common (and most successful) themes that work well with children.

It may come as no surprise that popular children’s movies are always a hit. For 2015, girls’ parties were dominated by a Disney’s Frozen theme. In fact, this type of party would still go over great, and bringing temporary tattoos in for kids would only make it that much more exciting. Tattoos kids would love would include snowflakes, princesses, or even outlines of the main characters themselves. For boys, The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles was another theme that seldom failed.

Aside from movies there are also timeless themes such as Legos, camping, rainbows/ princess/ fairies, or even crafts. All of these party themes can be bettered by providing tattoos kids will get more than excited about. The takeaway: select a popular theme and enhance the party even further with temporary tattoos for kids!

Safe Tattoos for Kids: Knowing the Types

Now that you have got your theme selected and the tattoos for the kids picked out, it would be advisable for you to understand the different types of temporary tattoos. For starters, there are three main types of temporary tattoos for kids: decal, airbrush, and henna. All three types are common tattoos for children, so many people will consider how long the tattoo lasts, and the application process itself.

Decal tattoos are arguably the most simple because you are just pressing the decal onto the body. These tattoos typically last anywhere from 24 hours to one week. Airbrush tattoos for kids will be a little more costly to apply, but are equally as safe as the decal type. Henna tattoos are also safe (except for black henna) but will last significantly longer than the other two (around 2-3 weeks). These are all thing to consider when researching tattoos for kids.

Why Kid Tattoos Work: Combining Creativity with Fun

There is something alluring about the freedom to imagine and to have. When children are given the opportunity to essentially “bring to life” their favorite movie characters or animals in these temporary tattoos for kids, the excitement that follows stems from their imaginations being realized and the sense of identity they are attaching the temporary tattoo. Further, the kids’ tattoos help them break out of their comfort zones. The tattoos speak when the children are too shy to do so on their own, facilitating social interaction and development. When donning their favorite movie, kids will find it easier to connect and find commonalities with one another. By equipping your child’s party or event with temporary tattoos for kids, you are creating a memorable and important moment in their life.

The Benefits of Temporary Tattoos for Kids

  • Temporary tattoos for kids fit most party themes
  • Kids will be more social when they flaunt their tattoos
  • Temporary tattoos for kids are safe and fun
  • Kids’ tattoos allow them to use their imagination and share something about themselves
  • Temporary tattoos for kids are usually cost-effective
  • Tattoos for kids help to enhance the environment of the party or event
  • Kids temporary tattoos can be done quickly and in most locations

Reviews
We had the pleasure of having Fabulous Faces Face Painting at our daughter's 4th birthday. Jane was amazing. She is a lovely person, very engaging and her face painting is fantastic. Honestly, the best face painting we have ever seen either at parties or festivals. Many of our guests felt the same. It was the perfect addition to the event!
— Adnan Zulfiqar
I'd like to just share how impressed we have been by your talents! The designs have been fantastic and the kids are really enjoying the events. I know it gets a bit busy but that's a good thing :) Thanks so much !

Admittedly, I was completely wrong in my perception of face painters! As my soon-to-be16-year-old was planning her big event, with 220 invited teen guests, I could not imagine why she would want to have a face painter at such a spectacular, sophisticated affair. We had already hired fire performers, and stilt walker's, and musicians.....but face painters? I knew if I was going to hire such an artist, It needed to extend beyond the ordinary children's birthday party face painters (clowns?) I had come to know if my children's younger years. These, after all, were teenagers ranging in age from 14 to 18 years old - and they have high expectations. Jane was very quick to respond to me and to assure me that not only would the children love the face painting, they would line up for it!! She said, "they're going to love it!" Taking Jane's word for it, I hired Jane plus her additional face painter for a couple of hours during the early portion of our party. I explained to Jane that our event was themed around Mardi Gras, and that our guests would be looking for more sophisticated face painting. Jane assured me that she knew exactly what we needed and would come prepared to "wow" our teens. True to her word, Jane arrived with samples from which the teenagers could select their faces. Her extensive collection of art materials was just what our guests were looking for, including jewles and stones. When I checked on the face painting table at one point during our party it was surrounded with both male and female teenagers. There was a line on both sides!I asked one of our guests how she liked it and she replied "it's awesome and she's so fast!" Jane and her assistant were turning out faces faster than I could have ever imagined. Before I knew it, almost our entire event had been painted. And it certainly looked like Mardi Gras was in full swing!!! Our photos from the night, with the smiling ,painted faces, tell it all. Who knew? These were teenagers who hopped into their own cars and drove themselves home, with their painted faces, and their big smiles. Thank you, so much, Jane. Your professionalism and your expertise made working with you absolutely thoughtless for me. I never worried about whether you would show up, or be on time. And I appreciated that you checked in with me the day after the event to thank us for hiring you and to compliment us on the event. You where right about everything!

We celebrated my daughter's 1st Birthday yesterday & had Theresa come for face painting & balloon twisting. She was excellent! She arrived ready & jumped right into pleasing all of the kids at the party. Theresa was very kind & calming. She was very accommodating to all of the kids ranging from 1-12 years old. Her painting was a hit & the balloons were adorable! I plan on keeping Fabulous Faces in my contacts & would recommend Theresa in a heartbeat! 5 stars!
