Airbrush Tattoo Stencils allow us to flaunt our body art for special events but avoid permanent markings. They’re fun for all ages too!
Stencils are usually related to arts and crafts but in reality can be applied in so many other ways and appeal to a large variety of tastes and interests. At All-About-Stencils, we try to accommodate all needs for stencil designs. Below are five
free printable stencils,
some ideas about using them and a video. Plus click on any of the stencils to get more like it!
Using airbrush tattoo stencils is the best way to get an image in place with clean lines. Not only do they give you the best chance of a fool proof design over hand painting they also save loads of time. It’s up to you if you want to add more details after you remove the stencil. In the video below you’ll see how two colors were used with one stencil. Just to plant a few ideas in your imagination.

where you can find a coyote and moon, a cactus and a horned skull.
Mylar or Plastic Stencils
free stencils to print
can be just like mylar or plastic stencils (except of course they’re free!). After printing the stencil on paper and before you cut out the design, cover it with a clear protective coating like clear shelf liner or strips of clear packing tape with each row slightly overlapping the previous.
Actually, because these airbrush tattoo stencils are paper thin, they tend to be easier to work with than plastic stencils which are not as flexible.
The downside of this kind of stencil is that because you have to hold it, you're limited to using one color and they are more prone to have paint bleeding underneath the stencil or shadow lines if the person moves as you are applying the tattoo.
