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!

Great tute!  I love your mermaid, especially.  Do you have an online source for the paper?  The ManFlesh is turning 40 this year and we're hoping all his dudes will come visit us in our new home to celebrate.  I'd like to put together some kind of favor-pack for them and temp tatts would be a fun and manly thing to include.

I see this as a great (after the holidays) FUN weekend project with my granddaughters. The 5 year old keeps rubbing my arm saying, "What a good artist he is."

Oh My Word, I didn't even know they made ink jet tattoo sheets!  My kids would love those and well like most kids they like those temporary tattoos!   This would be super cool so they could have what they wanted!   

Super cool idea for kids birthday parties for the take home loot bags!   Could also be great to include for classmates for holiday parties or with valentines at school.

I make soap and other "cosmetics" as defined by the FDA and in my spare time I sew.... Sewing is therapy for me in dealing with life stresses and my chronic pain.  When I hurt and can't sew, I plan what I want to sew.  I also have a great husband, three kids and three fur kids.....

Oh how clever! I'll have to look for that paper. That'd be FABULOUS to "test" tattoo ideas to see if you REALLY want it permanently... and for favors.

I'm pretty sure I read some where that if you put petroleum jelly over a temp tattoo before shower it'll help it stay longer (since water will wash off the jelly). At least I know it helps henna tattoos last longer. And of course don't scrub your loofah/washcloth over the area.

I love this idea! I definitely want to try it. I love tattoos but it is hard finding ones that you're going to like and this is a great way to test out some tattoo ideas
