Tattoo Model

Recently we supplied some of our Prison and Vintage style Temporary Tattoos for a photo shoot and the results are pretty cool.

tat model1We were told that the model already had full sleeve tattoos but wanted to add Vintage hand tattoos for this specific shoot. The tattoos used were 2 different Vintage Swallows and a black and grey clown version of the Tragedy and Comedy tattoos.

All of these tattoos not only fitted very well with his existing tattoos but also suited being worn on the hands.

We love the positioning and think it’s pretty hard to tell the difference between our fake tattoos and the models real ones.

Having fun with Tinsley Transfers Temporary Tattoos

One of our favourite things to do is spend some time having fun playing with Tinsley Transfers Temporary Tattoos.

Here is what we got up to yesterday with some Vintage and Pinup Tattoos.

We love how old school and cool the Sweet & Sour Devils look and the 1950’s Pinup is one of our most realistic tattoos.

The Pirate map tattoo is part of our Buccaneer Pirate Tattoo Kit which is a great way of putting together a themed look and the Gypsy Vintage tattoo is another great old school style tattoo.

Hope you like them and if you have any of our tattoos or any products don’t forget to send us your pictures of you wearing them : )

Getting to grips with FX Wound Tattoos

Sometimes it great to just grab a few tattoos and see what you can come up with!

I like the idea of using some cut and slash FX Wound Tattoos to write words and create quite extreme skin carvings. I love the fact that you can create such dramatic effects with such a simple product!

I remember it wasn’t that long ago that to create such an effect would involve messy sticky wax to start followed by sealing that and then making sure everything is blended and that’s before you even start colouring it!

So step 1 was to think of what I wanted to write and then start cutting out different cut and slash FX Wound Tattoos to use. I find it looks more realistic of you use different width and shape wounds.

The next step was very important indeed….I needed to borrow a leg to put the wounds on! this was an integral part of the process. Leg borrowed and wound tattoos cut the next step is to apply them!

So here is what I came up with! “SAVE ME” written in cuts and slashes with no mess or fiddley products needed! Just the wound tattoo sheets and some water.

I think it looks good as it is and pretty realistic but I wanted to give it that little extra something and make it look a little fresher and add a bit of gore.

Now I could have pulled out all manner of blood products that are readily available on the market today but in keeping with this little project being completely mess free and using minimal products I thought I go for something a little different and instead of using a blood product I’d just use a couple of different colours from my alcohol activated make-up palette. That way I get the look I want but the whole thing is waterproof and non sticky.

This is the finished look with the added makeup smudged on to give that look of blood and I think it just looks a bit more sore.

I hope you enjoy this quick and easy bit of makeup and if you are interested in any of our Temporary Tattoos including the wounds you can check them out on the site here http://www.spacemonkeys.co.uk/categories.asp?category=24
