Best Face Forward Tampa provides entertainment services to the Tampa Bay Area for private, corporate, civic and community events that include parties, picnics, and celebrations of all kinds. We make any event truly memorable, and leave a lasting impression — in more ways than one.

Face Painting

We create full face transformations that entertain, surprise, and delight. Each face painting is unique, created specifically for the individual. Find yourself remade as an exotic animal, dainty butterfly, or menacing monster! Audiences are amazed by their metamorphoses.

Henna Body Art

Henna body art reflects the exotic creations in the tradition of Indian, Moroccan, North African, and Middle Eastern art. Each hand-drawn design is as unique as the individual who wears it. Our subjects often find a new connection to Earth and Nature when they see the new images “tattooed” on their body. These reddish brown designs last from one to three weeks.

Glitter Tattoos

Using a special safe adhesive, we create sparkling pieces of art that last up to a week, even after bathing. Glitter tattoos are easily removed with rubbing alcohol or baby oil, so go ahead and be daring. These glistening images are great for pool parties!
