I made this for the Fantasy Swap http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=74897.10

I took a store bought candle and used inkjet printer tattoos (which don't work at all for tattoos as I had hoped they would.) I printed out the image, followed the directions, and put them on the candles instead.

It's hard to work in groups when you're omnipotent

Sorry to hear that the inkjet tattoos don't work, but in the grand scheme of things, this turned out much cooler!   You just followed the directions you would have used for skin?  No layer of anything over the top to seal it?

I did just follow directions for use on skin. I didn't actually cover or seal it with anything. However, when my hands were quite warm, I rubbed the top of the pic/candle with my hand. It smooshed a thin layer of wax over the edges. There is probably a better way to do this, but my hands are always really warm, so it worked for me.

They're beautiful. I hope burning them won't ruin them.
