Do you do Adult events: Yes but Family friendly only!! While we are a fun and open minded team, we have had our share of very adult themes which wasn't our cup of sea. Bachelorette parties are okay to a point, If you have questions, Please dont hesitate to contact us and ask away, we will find out if this event is for us, or refer you to someone who does certain events. 

Do You have any Tattoos??: NO! I personally dont have any tattoos or piercing in strange locations. But other than that, I do occasionally hire other mermaids that do have tattoos (Venilia, Theta), as we are an equal opportunity employer. However we understand some events and people have religious, conservative, other views on how a mermaid should look and that is completely understandable. We have both mermaids with and without tattoos. So if you want a mermaid without tattoos please let us know.
