Tinsley Transfers: Temporary Tattoos from Hollywood.

  Date: Tuesday 04 January, 2011
Founded by Hollywood make-up and special effects artist Christien Tinsley , Tinsley Transfers started making temporary tattoos out of necessity during the making of the film Pearl Harbor. While working on approximately 40 extras that required multiple wound and burn effects daily, Christien realized the need for a quick and timesaving tool to create such effects.

The end result produced an easy to apply tattoo transfer with an emphasis on continuity and reality of the effects. Being a very gifted make-up artist, Christien gave great attention to make the tattoos as real looking as possible. The tattoos look like they have been worn for a few years already.
