What It Is
The Sparkle Tattoo Parlor Cool Glam from Alex takes on the trend of glittery tattoos and puts them in an easy-to-use kit for kids. The kit includes 12 different tattoo stencils featuring stars, cherries, peace signs, and more. To use, start by selecting a stencil. Peel off the stencil's white backing and place it facedown on any area of skin. Peel off the clear cover and whip out the body glue to get started. Spread the glue over the exposed area of skin like you would apply a coat of nail polish. Peel off the stencil and wait until the glue turns clear, which takes about three minutes. Then choose from the four different colors of glitter (red, purple, silver, and blue), dip the small brush into the glitter, and brush it over the stenciled glue design. Use the big brush to dust away any excess glitter and your sparkly tattoo is ready to show off.
Is It Fun?
What we like about this kit is it's easy to use, and for kids who love a little sparkle this can be a fun way to accessorize their everyday look. The temporary aspect of these tattoos is also something that will appeal to parents.
Who It’s For
The Sparkle Tattoo Parlor Cool Glam is for ages 8 and up.
What To Be Aware Of
The directions say to wait for the glue to dry before applying the glitter, which is a bit deceiving. You want the glue to be a bit sticky in order to hold the glitter, so just wait until it turns from white to clear.
The stencils are reusable, simply replace the white backing to save the stencil for later use.
The tattoos last between 3–7 days. If you want to remove the stencil, just rub on some lotion and let it set in for about 10 minutes. Then scrub away the tattoo.
