Face Painting/ Glitter tattoos/ Transfer tattoos
FACE PAINTING INGREDIENTS CAN BE SHOWN ON REQUEST. We supply glitter tattoos and temporary tattoo transfers, using high quality body glue and glitters and use isopropyl (alcohol) wipes to cleanse the skin so your glitter tattoos last longer. We use Snazaroo, Diamond FX and other face painting products and paints that comply to the strictest cosmetic regulations, and are easy to apply and remove. However, in the unlikely but possible circumstance that an allergic reaction or skin complaint may occur due to any of the above activities, Routine Riots/Kim Holder cannot be held responsible, as all face painting is undergone at the participants risk (If 16yrs and above) or with the verbal permission or written permission of a child’s parent/guardian. (If the participant is below the age of 16yrs) It is your responsibility to read the product information on request and inform us of any know allergies. It is your responsibility as a parent/guardian to fully read and understand these terms and conditions, the disclaimer displayed at the party or the child consent form and disclaimer once you have signed it, is not Routine Riots responsibility and therefore we will assume your child is able to take part unless otherwise specified on the form. If a participant has skin allergies or infections, Routine Riots reserves the rights to refuse a person having their face painted due to hygiene and safety reasons.
At events where we provide balloon twisting, it is your responsibility as the customer/ parent/guardian to inform us if you or your children or party members are allergic to latex or any other material associated with balloons. We advise that small children should not be left unsupervised with balloon models as they can cause a choking hazard due to small parts.
Chartacter performers will vary facially from our pictures shown online, on our advertising and on facebook as many of our performers play multiple characters. We cannot guarantee your party will be hosted by any one specific person you may have seen in a photo, due to availability, but we can guarantee a quality lookalike and character performance.
