Tips and Tricks for Glitter Tattoos

  • Do NOT allow glue to FREEZE. The adhesive will turn solid and be ruined if frozen. Store below 100 degrees farenheit.
  • Remove glue from skin, brushes and tools with alcohol or Isopropyl Myristate Adhesive Remover
  • Works best on hair free locations
  • Some of the simpler stencils may be used several times if you remove them carefully.
  • Apply in a thin smooth layer, thicker layers tend to roll up at the edges and wear off quickly
  • Use Opaque polyester glitter colors for the most colorful and bright patterns
  • Use holographic translucent polyester glitters for an elegant, subtle pattern
  • Freehand patterns by applying adhesive with mini cones, put 1 teaspoon glue in a mini cone and seal well. You may not need to cut your cone at all as the glue is quite thin
  • Freehand patterns with jacquard or luer bottles using the smallest tips works great. Just remember your tips may be a single use item when using with adhesive.
  • Freehand with small synthetic brushes, makeup swabs, tips or gloss wands.
