What you'll need:

♥ An inkjet printer
♥ Microsoft Word or a similar program
♥ LUSH's Shimmy Shimmy Massage Bar (or a similar product) I just wish the sparkles showed up on camera!
♥ Computer Crafts Inkjet Tattoo Sheet

~~~

Step 1: In Word, fill up a whole page with all the images you are going to want & print. Mine looks like this:



My images are of, Lily Munster, Frida Kahlo, Louis Wain paintings, a cover of The Bell Jar, and a mermaid : )


Step 2: After letting your printed sheet dry, you can cut out your images.

Step 3: Pick where you wanna put it, remove the (sticky side of the paper), press in for 20 seconds or so. I recommend getting someone to help you with this part so the tat can stay straight

Step 4: Sparkle time! After your tat is set, warm up your massage bar so the glitter will go over the tat easily, but i wished it showed up better on camera. And viola!



Im excited to do the other ones after this one comes off!

It lasted about 3 days before i decided to take a shower hahah and then it all came off. But if i didn't wash it off I think it coulda stayed a while longer.
