As our solution works with the natural tone of your skin, there is absolutely no danger of turning “orange” with our service. Our clients love working with our airbrush experts to ensure a lovely, even tan that is a great experience and a great look. The cost for an airbrush tan is $50.

Cosplay Airbrush Tattoos by Tattoos for Now


Case Study: A client of our was attending an Anime convention and was a performer as well as an attendee. He really wanted to go as the character Kamina but he did not know how to replicate Kamina’s detailed tribal tattoos that covered the arms back and neck.

Our client called Tattoos for Now for help. We researched Kamina images online to get a complete idea of the detail of the tattoos. Once this was completed, we were able to determine a price and start to cut out custom stencils to replicate the Kamina tattoos.

Here is a photo of our client dressed as the anime character Kamina complete with our airbrush tattoos. The photo shows the character’s tattoos as well as the replicated airbrushed tattoo. The client was very impressed with  how closely the airbrush tattoo matched the original design.

We love helping our clients with detailed or challenging transformations. If you need help with a costume, please call email Nina at
