Here are some sentences :

  • You can have your body tattooed.
  • A girl is having her hair braided.
  • They are going to have their faces painted

Those sentences above are using the construction of Causative Have / Get. We use causative have / get when we do not do the things ourselves but other people do it for us. The past participles (tattooed, braided, and painted) are used after have / get to give a passive meaning.

Here are some common mistakes :

  • I went to the tailor to make a dress.

The correct sentences are :

  • I go to the hairdresser to have / get my hair cut.
  • I went to the tailor to have / get a dress made.

There are two kinds of causative structure (both are applicable for all English Tenses).
