Turning temporary tattoos into an industry
Accomplished entrepreneur and founder of multi-million dollar company Artémix, Tina Klideris is known for her exuberant, creative spirit and innate business expertise.
Founded as a private label makeup company in 1998, the Artémix brand grew from custom-blended cosmetics to hand-painted body art. As demand for Tina's temporary tattoos skyrocketed, she began airbrushing tattoos at Bar and Bat Mitzvahs, Sweet Sixteen celebrations, and private parties everywhere from Manhattan penthouses to celebrity homes in the Hamptons.
Artémix expanded into the corporate market, providing artists for holiday parties, benefits, and product launches with clients such as the New York Stock Exchange, Macy's, Bloomingdale's, NBC, Gillette, and MTV. Tina then introduced a line of custom airbrushed apparel and by 2004 her company was featured in US Weekly Magazine.
Today, Artémix distinguishes itself through exceptional professionalism, customer satisfaction, artistry, and innovation.
Expanding into New Markets
Inspired by her work with children and families, Tina founded Klub4Kidz in 2010. Klub4Kidz provides a safe indoor playground for children, a warm and welcoming gathering place for parents and caregivers, and a distinctive private party center in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. Plans are already underway to expand Klub4Kidz to new locations to foster community and quality of life for New York City families.
Tina is a member of the National Federation of Independent Business (NFIB) and the National Association of Professional & Executive Women (NAPEW).
Tina currently lives in New York City with her husband Spiro and their children Gregory and Katerina.
My vision for the future of Artémix is to keep working with amazing people across the country to develop the tools and skills to transform their lives like I did.
So many people work jobs that undervalue them and their talents. I believe strongly that if you have the determination and enthusiasm it takes to succeed, all you need is a plan, a mentor, and a product that sells. That is why I created the Artémix Airbrush Temporary Tattoo system.
By combining a top-quality, high-demand product with ready-made business materials and one-on-one mentoring, I get to watch our amazing Artémix Business Owners walk the same path that led me to happiness and success.
I’m thrilled to announce that Artémix is currently patenting our signature palette collection, which will hopefully one day be retailed in major cosmetic stores worldwide. My energy as an entrepreneur is innate - Artémix will keep growing and moving forward because I couldn’t have it any other way.
Creating jobs and providing outstanding service motivates me to push myself each day to build something new and inspiring.
I get excited when I turn a vision into a creation, just like an artist with a blank canvas. That’s my business. That’s my life.
