Types of events:
School/ College/ Corporate Events: An invoice and contract are emailed prior to your event for Purchase Order processing. Certificate of insurance and W-9 form are available upon request. Payable via check day of event. Attendees don't pay anything to receive body art.
Parties, Retreats, Expos: Hire Island Girl for your event and your attendees don't pay anything to receive body art. Retainer and contract required.
Fundraisers & Non-Profits: We're happy to help increase donations by doing body art at your fundraising event. You hire Island Girl and interested attendees pay for body art at your event. 100% of their payments go in a large glass vase and are donations to your fundraiser. Many designs can be completed in 5 minutes or less. With a steady crowd, that can potentially generate $250+ per hour for your fundraiser! Retainer and contract required. Island Girl donates time & services to an event every year. 2017 Recipient: Break the Silence ~ Suicide Prevention Awareness Event at SUNY Delhi NY. (Additional contributions listed on the About page.)
Hire time vs. party size:
Mini designs take 3-4 minutes each (16-20 designs per hour). Small designs take approximately 5-7 minutes each (8-12 designs per hour). See Gallery images for size/ time ratios. These estimates include the time it takes a customer to sit down, get comfortable, have the design area cleaned, the design applied and then the customer to get up for the next customer to sit. Customers that are slow moving, fidgety, or have last-minute design change requests, etc. change these estimates.

Design prices start at just $5 and go up based on size and intricacy chosen by client. Airbrush set up/ maintenance is lengthy so it's only available at festivals.
Schedule an appointment:
Contact us for a date and time to meet at our studio in Delhi NY.
We'll send you a Square invoice via email so you can submit a retainer to reserve an appointment. The retainer is applied to the cost of your body art. This payment is security so that prep work can begin and an assurance that you're serious about the date and time reserved just for you.
Canceling or rescheduling:
If you absolutely cannot keep your appointment, contact us ASAP. More than 72 hours notice can move a retainer to a new date/ time, or cancel an appointment and refund the retainer. Less than 72 hours notice or a no-show at the appointed time then the retainer is forfeit, non-refundable, non-transferable.
