Should I place my production order for Temporary Tattoo FX and FX Transfers online?

For production professional quality Temporary Tattoo FX and 3D FX Transfers, we recommend that you place your order through our Studio Coordinator at:

Tinsley Studio • (818) 767-4199

I am a makeup artist/studio production, and I've decided that I want to place my production order through this website...

You can certainly place your order online, just note that your order will be processed within 24-48 business hours and in line with all other online orders, in the order received. We cannot guarantee that you will get your order in time for your shoot or performance.

Are your online Temporary Tattoo FX and 3D FX Transfers recommended for Film/TV/Stage use?

While our products are so realistic that many productions are using them, we don't recommend them for use on Film/TV as our Temporary Tattoo FX and 3D FX Transfers are made of a different process that has a sheen on them and noticeable edges, which may show up on the final cut. While they may suffice for background actors, we highly recommend our custom tattoos and studio prosthetic transfers for your main actors. Please contact our Studio Coordinator at:
