X Tattoo

In what is shaping up to be another summer blockbuster, X-Men First Class looks to deliver great makeup effects and tattoos for this mutant cast of characters. Last year (2010) when Makeup Department Head Frances Hannon contacted us to provide tattoos for the film we were very exited to jump on board! The Tinsley team had the pleasure of meeting up-and-coming starlet Zoe Kravitz and set out to create Wing tattoos for her character Angel. Tinsley designer Mike Mekash helped facilitate the design and production while Frances took the lead on application. Prosthetics were provided by Spectral Motion, Inc.

The highly anticipated X-Men First Class opens in theaters today. We hope you enjoy it as much as we enjoyed participating in its creation.
