FRED BLAU NDHS CLASS OF 1957 - MY VOTE FOR THE MOST UNIQUE CAREER
Fred Blau's incredible tatoos for the movies
Many of you are aware that Fred Blau's family has been in the theatrical make up business for generations. He and his daughter did a special demonstration for my Humanities class at Moorpark College. One of my students went home with a demonstration cinema-tattoo, so real, that his mother almost passed out.
I went on-line to the Blau's Reel Creations website, and copied a little of the company's description for you.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF REEL CREATIONS.
We manufacture specialty cosmetics for the motion picture and entertainment industries. All these products were developed for make-up artists by a Hollywood make-up artist.
Looking for temporary tattoos? We will customize them for your project or you can choose from our vast inventory of tribal, gang, military, children's, Halloween and fun, pretty flowers and butterflies and birds. Have tattoos or scars in need of a cover-up? Our cover-up kits or airbrush inks will do the job. Want to make scars, bruises, blemishes, old age, scary monsters or change hair color? We have an array of palettes and kits to suit your needs. Spectrum colors, fleshtone colors, ghoulish colors, metallics and day-glo, even a palette designed by Academy Award winner Greg Cannom. How about blood that looks like the real thing? We've got it in different formulas from original to thick, new to old. Airbrushing is all the rage and we have a product that won't clog your brush with a whole range of colors.
Reel is the originator of these products. Many have tried to imitate our products with little success. Remember imitation is the highest form of flattery. So go with the originator and GET REEL.
