Is face-painting/body art for all ages?

We can, and do paint, people of all ages (children should be at least three years old). Often adults are more self-conscious and may take encouragement to being painted, but once they take the plunge they get just as much enjoyment from it. From children to students to pensioners, everyone can have fun with being painted. Have a look at the examples on the Gallery - Adults page. Temporary transfer tattoos or glitter tattoos are an alternative for grown-ups, too.


 What areas of the country do you work in?

Lapis Lizard are based in Oxford, and generally work within a 50 miles radius of Oxford (so mostly in the counties of Oxfordshire, Buckinghamshire and Berkshire). However, we will work further afield - but there will be an additional charge for travel cost.


Do you work at festivals?

Yes, Lapis Lizard have painted and also done glitter tattoos at a number of festivals. Face and body art often contributes to the festival atmosphere in a way that few other activities can. It is also a great opportunity for all ages to have some fun with colour.


How long should we book you for?

As a guide, Lapis Lizard can paint approximately 10 - 12 people in one hour (glitter tattoos take slightly longer to do). Please bear this in mind when deciding on the length of booking time. Ideally, we prefer to take bookings for a minimum of 2 hours.

How do we go about booking Lapis Lizard?

In the first instance you can Contact us with your requirements. If you are happy to accept our quote we will reserve your booking until we have received your deposit. We will then send you a confirmation of your booking.


How long in advance should we book Lapis Lizard?

We suggest to get in touch as soon as you know the date of your event in order to avoid disappointment. We are often booked a few weeks in advance of an event.


Can I book Lapis Lizard for a one off body art/painting session?

Yes, we are very flexible and are happy to discuss this with you. We recently have had a customer who was painted as a white rabbit before they went to a hen-party, and we have painted models for photo shoots and fashion shows. Another one-off special event that can be celebrated with body-art is pregnancy: ring us to discuss belly painting. Or how about having a glitter tattoo done for the engagement party or for Valentine's Day...
