Choose an airbrush tattoo paint that is
When choosing paint for your airbrush tattoo kit, always choose airbrush ready paints. Airbrush Ready paints are very thin and the pigment (colored dirt) is finely ground up.
Alcohol based paint wears better than water based paint. We can’t sweat or wash off the paint because our bodies are not alcohol based, despite many bartender’s opinions otherwise.
Remove alcohol based paint with, you guessed it, alcohol. I love recommending vodka as a cleaning agent. However, most people choose isopropyl (by most people, I mean everyone) because it’s got enough alcohol to clean the paint, but not anything worth putting to other ‘medicinal’ uses…
Yeah, medicinal uses. I like that.
Theoretically, yes. However, water-based airbrush tattoo paint doesn’t exist.
The Guru’s Opinion
You probably shouldn’t use water-based tattoos on customers. Most customers expect something slightly more permanent airbrush tattoo.
If you’re still set on using water-based paint for your application, go get em.
Only use FDA Approved body paint. Try looking for water-based special effects makeup since water-based tattoo paint doesn’t exist.
If you have a great use and find a great paint let me know. I love hearing about new uses.
Using FDA Approved products means that you look out for your customers’ best interests.
The FDA likes products that are hypoallergenic. Hypoallergenic simply means the product doesn’t cause very many allergic reactions. That’s a very good thing.
