    I don't believe it's possible to get a permanent glitter tattoo.. The ink of a tattoo is injected into your second layer of skin. Even if it was possible to inject glitter into your skin it wouldn't sparkle beause the light wouldn't hit the glitter.

    As mentioned above a good tattoo artist could probably replicate the effect. As well, when you're going out you could put glitter gel over top of the tattoo. *shrugs*

    no its because they said the place i want it which i know they are just having it on, i got 2 of my other tattoo's there and they are okay but had to get them touched up else where. so i know its not cause they are brilliant lol i have been advised to try a shop thats been open and run for like 20-30years still run by same guy he's good and cheaper :D

    Theres a shop at Charing Cross called Creative Art - guy called Frank, hes a little expensive but he took the time out with me to discuss the tat I wanted and what I had in mind. He designed my tat for me.. Can't recommend him enough!!
