Today i had issues with the glitter getting on the table, her arm and on the floor. How do you keep all the glitter where its supposed to go?

I bought this ones, thats a kind of silicone brush.
The glitter stick on the brush an you can put it on the glue with not so much mess.
It help also to put the glitter in the right place.
The brushes get clean with alkohol.

I have a small kitchen cutting board that stays in my glitter kit. I just slide it under the area getting the tattoo (arm, leg, hand) and all the excess falls to the board. I can then brush it off into the trash.
My son uses a slightly different method. He uses a thick microfiber pad, not a towel, it is a pad I found at the dollar store in the car care section. He holds it in his left hand while applying the glitter with his right. So he is able to hold that thick pad right up under wherever he is applying the glitter. He then taps the excess off into the trash.

You can clean up stray glitter using a lint roller, or the clear cling part of the stencil. In a pinch, I found that tape works also (I carry low tack painters tape in my kit).

We both use the poof bottles and have gotten really good at using the right amount of pressure so glitter doesn't go flying everywhere. If I need to use brushes, I am just careful about how much product I pick up.

Those are awesome-looking brushes. Where'd you get them? Did you order these online or are they in a store somewhere? I'd like to pick up a few.

Another question. What do you use to keep the mica shadow away. I did a tattoo and the mica shaded the arm black. Any thoughts. I used a brush to apply and thought I was being extremely careful.

I gently and carefully clean up around the design with a wipe when using mica.
Another trick is to leave the stencil on, apply the mica or glitter, then gently press the skin around the stencil. This loosens the stencil from the design and allows you to remove it without lifting the design.
I hope that is clear. Not sure how else to describe it.

A lint roller helps mica from getting everywhere. Just go over the tattoo after you are done. Working on a video soon but have had some bad things come up in my personal life so it may take a bit to sit down and film it. Ill try to get it started soon!!
