About Us

Tattoos for Now, the largest company of its kind in Western Canada, was founded by owner Nina Corrie in 2003. For the past thirteen years, we have provided the services of airbrush tattoos, bodypainting, special effects and belly painting. We provide our services both as a retailer and as a supplier to the special events industry.

We currently provide our airbrush tattoo and body painting services in Vancouver, Burnaby, New Westminster, Coquitlam, Port Coquitlam, Maple Ridge, Langley, Mission, Abbotsford, Chilliwack and in Kelowna. We are able to travel to other locations such as Whistler for a reasonable travel fee. We are members of the Canadian Association of Face and Body Artists.

Supplier to the Special Event Industry

Our primary business is supplying our airbrush tattoo services as interactive entertainment at events. We help our clients make their event a memorable one by providing their guests with a unique, interactive, and entertaining experience. We are able to set up a fun and unique temporary tattoo parlour at events that event planners love. Airbrush tattoos are a very unique idea or activity to have at your next event.

Our artists have been hired for approximately 1000 events since 2003. Our tattoos are made of a safe, alcohol-based body paint that dries instantly and looks realistic. The tattoo will last up to a week, though it can be removed quickly and easily with baby oil.

Each of our talented airbrush artists can apply up to 85 high-quality, temporary tattoos per hour. Our clients appreciate this twofold commitment to excellence and efficiency, as well as the enthusiastic response of their guests to our service.

Clients love to hire our airbrush temporary tattoo artists for their events as they know this will be a fun and memorable experience for guests of all ages.
