Standing in line for kiddie face painting just got a lot more interesting (and worth the wait!). Darth Vader, Dios de los Muertos-inspired sugar skulls and an unbelievable giraffe are a few of the newest designs we’ve scoped out on the faces of littles.  Flip through our slideshow below for 15 amazing face art designs—and be prepared to kiss balloons and butterflies goodbye.

Not So Scary Skull

Face painting isn't just for festivals. Sometimes the best face painting happens spontaneously. (We bet the wait times are shorter, too!). This bright sugar skull work was spotted on Venice Beach Boardwalk. Don’t forget to check out your local markets, city events and tourist spots for possible artists.
