1 hour for 8-12 children/guests
The suggested number of children/guests per hour gives us time to follow themes and make the bigger, fancier balloons that people love.
Airbrush Tattoos is a modern form of “face painting”. Because it uses compressed air and stencils, the application is much faster and cleaner.
Airbrushing is not limited to just your face. We’ve found that most children prefer it on their arm or shoulder where they can see it. Now with more than 200 different designs stencils!
Airbrushing is very COVID-FRIENDLY. Unlike traditional

How do I book your services? Simple! Booking starts by filling out the “Contact” form. Based on the information you provide we will email you a quote and contract. After you sign the contract and place the deposit, you'll receive a confirmation email that your event is booked.
Is a deposit required? Yes. most events require a deposit to book.
How long should I book the artists for? Typically, the length of time to book the entertainment for is determined by the number of guests you want us to entertain. For the best experience, 1 of our balloon artists can entertain 8-12 kids/guests per hour, 15 max. This gives your artist time to make the bigger and fancier balloons that people love. For large events, such as corporate events with lots of guests, we can increase the number of artists and reduce the balloon choices & Airbrush Designs to accommodate more guests.
When should we start the entertainment? We recommend starting the entertainment at least 30 min after the party starts. This allows for late arrivals.
Do you wear costumes? The short answer is, no we don't. We consider ourselves "balloon artists". We will dress "up" for certain occasions., such as holiday season etc. Our typical attire is what you see in the picture to the above.
What are my payment options? The artists accept cash, Venmo, A Credit Card option is available through the website only.
Do you charge a booking Fee? Only for company/corporate events.
Are you insured? We carry general liability. Please let us know in advance if you’d like to be added to our insurance policy as “additional insured”, and/or have specific insurance requirements. These actions will increase the cost of your invoice.
What is your cancellation policy? Cancellations, changes or reduction in entertainment time or options, for any reason, must be sent by email with a minimum of 2 weeks before the event date. Deposits are refundable only if the cancellation is made 2 weeks before the event. The 2 weeks notice gives us time to book a replacement event, and reschedule the artists. Please understand, we may have declined other events to book yours. When you cancel too close to the event date, it puts the artist out of work.
What if I need to reschedule my event? If you are planning a party outdoors, we recommend having an alternative indoor location in case of bad weather, bad air etc. We may be able to reschedule the entertainment if we have availability in our schedule. Rescheduling of your event may only be done once. The window for rescheduling is within 2 weeks of the original date and must be rescheduled to a date no more than 4 weeks from the original date. Because we book months in advance, there is no guarantee we can reschedule to your prefered date.
How much space do you need & what should I prepare? We bring our own tables and chairs. Please provide shade if outdoors. If indoors, the area should be up against a wall, facing out, and somewhere where the guests can form a line without causing a traffic jam. Electricity is required for the Airbrush Tattoos, Fill-A-Bubble & Photo Booth. Area needed for activities: Balloons -5’ x 5’, Airbrushing – 5’ x 5’, Fill-A-Bubble- 8’ x 4’, Photo Booth – 10'x10'.
Is the set-up time included? Typically, we will arrive with enough time to set-up and be ready to go at our scheduled start time. There may be times where we're running a little late, in that case we'll add the lost time to the end of the event. (we will always call if we're running behind schedule.)
Can you perform outside or in a public park Yes! As long as there is shade for the guests and entertainers. We cannot be in direct sunlight. Direct sunlight is harmful for the equipment and supplies and will make it malfunction. For events in parks and public spaces, permission and permits must be obtained by the hiring party.
Can you Airbrush Tattoo outside or in a public park? Yes! As long as there is access to electricity. If not, a generator or battery pack can be provided for an additional fee.
Do you travel outside the South Bay? Yes, we do! There may be a minimum time and/or a travel fee for events outside the South Bay. We will inform you during the booking. Please understand, time spent traveling on the road is less time we can spend entertaining.
Is tipping necessary? Tipping is very much appreciated but completely up to you.
Event Planners & company events. Please let us know when booking if you need the entertainers to be ready on standby at a certain time. For example, before all the guests arrive. We need to account for this extra time. Proof of general liability insurance upon request. Please let us know if you’d like to be added to our insurance policy as “additional insured”, and/or have specific insurance requirements. These actions will increase the cost of your invoice.
