Airbrush Temporary Tattoos Stencil

airbrush_tattoo_stencil_gallery_sheet_03Airbrush tattoos are applied with an airbrush. Usually sprayed through a type of stencil onto the surface of the skin with a specially formulated paint. Not to be confused with Henna tattoos, Airbrush Tattoos are a PAINT that sits on top of the skin, not a dye. They were first developed by movie makers and makeup artists, wanting longer lasting, realistic looking temporary tattoos for their actors to wear.

Therefore saving valuable time on makeup and ensuring the tattoo looked precisely the same for the next shoot.
