    The Henna Lace Temporary Tattoos are a great activity option that has all the appeal of henna without the time and mess concerns of henna.

    This package includes efficient, friendly, and costumed tattoo techs who provide all the necessary equipment to apply the tattoos and an elegant scene with matching tablecloths and dresses. After waiting a couple seconds for the tattoo to dry, take a picture of it in our framed selfie station! Packages start at $350 for 2 tattoo techs for 2 hours.

    We also offer similar packages with Metallic Flash & Glitter Tattoos as well as Airbrush Tattoos. Prices vary on these.

    Recently the newly finished Catalyst Airship got to be utilized for one of the purposes it was designed for… for brides to get ready for their wedding!

    Lovely Monica picked a small funky venue for her wedding– and the venue didn’t have any private rooms available… so she had her hair makeup dress ritual all done inside our 25 ft airstream.
