I found them at party city, Walmart and or target.

When using the tattoos do you apply a base coat first or just over the top?

I would love to know where you got the Avenger and Darth Vader tattoos.

Everyone is so creative, it makes me want to try it myself...

Yes base coat first then apply the tattoo n right after I applied 2 coats of base coat again. Found that top coat cracks after it's fully dry. So far I haven't had any problems with the base coat at all.

The Star Wars tattoos were a bit hard to find for some reason. Found those at party city not an exact fit thought but u will need to place darth vader right in the center n cut off a small portion of both sides.

FYI not all tattoos are exact fit I just cut them to fit how I wanted.

Thank you

I'm thinking of using the tattoos, so I have a couple of questions. I want to be sure that I am doing this correctly.

1. Apply base coat
2. Apply tattoo (do I wait for the bast coat to dry or do you want it to be tacky?? Also, do you just place the tattoo on the band or do you use water, like when you apply to skin?)
3. Apply 2 more coats of base coat.

Thanks so much!!!

It was a lot of work, but they are awesome and we love them! I actually wish I would have made mine like my DD or another design I thought of this morning. Oh well, I am still satisfied with all of them.
Thank you!!

Yes you apply tattoos the same way you would on skin. Just make sure base coat is fully dry before u apply the tattoos. Remember water n wet nail polish don't mix well so also make sure after applying tattoo you wait a few minutes for the water to dry in the band n tattoo before u apply base coat on top.

This is my first attempt at decorating a MB--I'm going in May for my first ever Flower and Garden Festival, so decided to go in that direction Sorry if these are huge, I wasn't sure how to make them smaller.

So cute! Are you putting a clear nail polish on top? I'm waiting for my bands to come for an oct treehouse stay and I'm excited to decorate them. I was wondering how to seal (for lack of a better word) them so the gems wouldn't pop off easily.
Also, if you put a coating of a polish all over the entire band, will it effect the functionality ?
Thanks :-)

These stones had adhesive on the back, but I did use base coat to cover them in, it seems pretty sturdy so far. I have been reading this thread since it started and there are some who are using super glue to put the stones on.

I can't speak from personal experience, but as I understand it the bands work just fine with nail polish, stones, covers, tape, etc. If I find out differently on my upcoming stay I will be sure to report back.
