Tattoo Junkee Glitter Body Art

Tattoo Junkee glitter body art review on BeautyJudy

I would say the most buzzed about booth at Cosmoprof North America Las Vegas last month had to be Tattoo Junkee.

Tattoo Junkee, which is exclusively sold in Walmart right now, is a new kid on the block when it comes to body art and glitter.The makers of the pro body art line G The Body Art Professional (see the photo above – gorgeous work!) wanted to translate their fun glitter body art for the consumer, and so they came up with Tattoo Junkee.

The brand was offering applications of its two star products – glitter body art tattoos and glitter lips – to attendees, and everyone walked around, sparkling.

The brand offers body art kits, and sells separately brushes for applying the glitter and brushing off excess, glitter, glue and body jewelry accents. It even sells stencils separately.

Tattoo Junkee makes matte tattoos, as well.

Another popular and awesome product they make? Long-lasting glitter lips. But I’ll review and go over that in a separate post (you KNOW I love this!)


I received a complimentary application of a glitter tattoo during my booth tour. I choose the “be happy…” design, and when asked, I opted for pink and purple glitter.

First, after cleaning the area on my forearm that I asked for my tattoo, my artist laid down the stencil, which is a fabric texture designed to allow intricate tattoos:

Then, she brushed on the body glue:

After applying the glue, she immediately removed the stencil from my arm.

After giving the glue a moment to set, she brushed on the two glitter colors:

She used another brush to brush away the excess, and ta-da, I had a temporary, waterproof and long-lasting glitter tattoo!

I was shocked at how it held up. Of course it looked best in the first few days. Here it is on day 4:

And here it is on day 7, when I finally scrubbed the rest off, compared with day 1 on top:

I did receive a sample body art kit to try at home:

But I loved this so much, I went out and bought more supplies:

I had to have that “be happy…” tattoo again!

Everything in the Tattoo Junkee line has a price point of less than $20. You can shop the entire line on Tattoo Junkee’s website, as well as at Walmart – here’s the link to the body art section. I searched for the brand on Walmart’s website and it didn’t come up, so it looks like it’s only in stores.

So what do you think about Tattoo Junkee? I was surprised how much I enjoyed my glitter tattoo, and I can’t wait to do another one soon! I’ll do another post to share more about the glitter lips!

  • erikatheicyone

    I so want to try this. And yes, I am almost fifty. And I don’t care. I have recently started wearing blue extensions in my hair and if I want a little glitter, here and there, I’m doing it! 😀 Life is to short to not have fun. Screw the rules.

    • BeautyJudy

      Shut the front door! You look nothing like 50!!!!! And yep. I’m 37 and rocking glitter lips as we speak. I think if glitter complements your style, your life, and you love it, go for it!

  • beautybymissl

    I love this idea. I think I´m bit too old for glittery tattoos, but if I was 15 or so then I would be definitely rocking it!

    • BeautyJudy

      Ah, I hope I never get too old for glitter, lol!

  • Miranda Mendoza

    Glitter tattoos are SO FUN! This would be cool to do at a party.

    • BeautyJudy

      Glitter at a party – perfect!

    • BeautyJudy

      Lol indeed

  • loveforlacquer

    ah these are so fun!!!!

    • BeautyJudy

      They are!

  • Amber

    This is such fun idea! My daughter has a kit, but it’s not as nice as this one.

    • BeautyJudy

      It’s Walmart prices too! Easy to experiment at this price point!

  • Cosmetics Aficionado

    Oh well that is fun! 🙂

    • BeautyJudy

  • Kim Porter

    The glitter tattoos are so cute!

    • BeautyJudy

      I agree, they really are fun!

  • robin

    I saw this at Walmart and walked right past them! (head slap) Now I want to run to Walmart and get this and a backless dress! However I would have no one to help me
    apply to my back. So maybe some cute ankle “tats”????

    • BeautyJudy

      LOL Robin I was just picturing trying to do those butterflies on my own back, hahaah. Disaster! I definitely agree – a nice ankle tattoo, arm, or leg! I want to do my forearm again! I’m definitely going to do one this weekend, and I’m finally using my glitter lips tonight!
