The Mother Ship


Faux Tattoo Stencils are the engine that runs Faux Tattoo Studios. Faux Tattoo Stencils are sophisticated tools we developed with cutting edge design and laser technology. Faux Tattoo Stencils create incredibly believable tattoo lines, designed to be used with an airbrush. Combined with our specialized application technique, the results are the most realistic FX tattoos in the industry. Consider our system HD Airbrush Makeup’s edgy little sister. Using our techniques, as well as knowledge of real tattoos and tattoo history, we paint real tattoo designs on skin with our own long lasting, specially formulated FX tattoo ink. Our ink contains all FDA Approved cosmetic ingredients. Faux Tattoo Studios is the only premier temporary tattoo service in Las Vegas and Los Angeles featuring the best, most realistic temporary tattoo designs in the industry.

Our Motto – Our tats are real as long as it’s on your skin.


We think temporary tattoos should look and feel real to the naked eye. For us nothing less is acceptable. We don’t rely on outdated tools and techniques – meaning we never transfer tattoos. FX tattoo innovation is our mission. We see it as our duty to offer productions alternatives in light of new HD camera and television technology. Our passion for what we do spurs us on to continually learn from our experiences. We will always grow our flash collection and hone the techniques we know will change the concept of temporary tattoos forever. Our goal is to create “The Removable Tattoo”. Because it’s real art applied by real artists, it’s real until you take it off.

Pro Makeup Artists For Pro Results


We train and work with professional makeup artists because we believe the bar for entertainment temporary tattoos had to be raised. We aren’t clowns and we don’t do kiddie tats. Our realistic tattoos are designed for adults. We cater to adult parties and events that require that extra dose of sophistication that can’t be found anywhere else. It’s why we are the official event temporary tattoo company for DreamWorks Animation as well as the many other production and Fortune 500 companies we call happy clients. It only makes sense to dispatch a talented pro makeup artist team no matter if it’s a high end event or a movie set. Quality service and expert execution is always our ultimate goal.

*Please Note- LA Services Are Based On Our Artist’s Availability*

Our team of freelance makeup artists are professionals. That means they are busy. We try to accommodate everyone according to their schedules. We will do all we can to work with you to get you hooked up with awesome tats. In the case of custom tattoos, stencils are designed and shipped from our headquarters in Las Vegas and require 5 days lead time. Thank you for understanding!
