New name, new website, new CONTEST!


We here at YBody USA have gone through a lot of changes this year.  The biggest and most important change is our name!  We are now The Art Factory and Party Place.  We have a new location in Midlothian, Virginia (just outside of Richmond), and have expanded our offerings.  In addition to selling the highest quality body art supplies available, we now offer workshops, classes and host parties!

We will continue to be the North American distributor of YBody glitter tattoos and accessories, but we have increased the supplies we provide as well.  You can now purchase Mehron, FAB, Global, Loew-Cornell and Silly Farm brands in our store.  We have brushes, sponges, henna, stencils (reusable and 3-layer) and any other accessory you might need.
Along with this name change, we re-launched our website with a brand new, fresh look.  We hope you find navigating easy, and we are always looking for feedback. 

Since we have these new products and this new website, we figured that the best way to showcase it would be through you, our loyal customers.  We would like to run a contest to spotlight the amazing talent of our friends. 

Here’s how it works:  this will be a rolling contest, meaning that there is no deadline.  The only requirement is that you use only the products that we sell (easy, right?).   We will be choosing photos that we think best showcases our products, so the quality of the photo matters!  We are looking for pictures of face painting, body painting, henna, and glitter tattoos.  No licensed characters please (if you don’t know how we feel about that, read here). 

Remember that this is for the top spot on our website, so we are looking for something really special.  In addition to having your artwork showcased, we will send you a thank you of $25 in store credit. 

To submit your entry, email the following to ybodyusa@gmail.comybodyusa@gmail.com:
- a photo of your artwork
- a list of the products that you used
- a photo of you
- a waiver statement granting The Art Factory the right to use your photo (make sure that your model is okay with being featured on our website)

If you have any comments, suggestions or questions, please let us know!
