Temporary Stormlight Tattoos!

6 posts in this topic

Sooo @Tharatariel10 is visiting me (and our parents I guess) and we gave each other temporary tattoos with sharpies! Let's hope they actually last the month like there supposed to! 

Tharatariel is in the red shirt, I'm in purple. :)

Did you freehand this or mark out guidelines before you started?  Whatever you did for the glyph worked, because it looks really great.

I really want to do this too (with Sharpies of course) just to see what it's like, but I'm afraid that my hands are too shaky and I'd have it on me for a month. :unsure:

We sorta used eyeliner first so we could draw it out (we used a photo reference) before we did the sharpie. Unfortunately, it seems like the combo of baby powder and hairspray to set it isn't working all that well (Pinterest has FAILED ME) so we may have to do touch ups tomorrow...

I definitely don't think I'd be able to do on myself! Your design is awesome though and if you have an artistically proficient friend or family member you should totally go for it. :)

I ACTUALLY WENT AND DID IT. :o:o:o

I had my digitally drawn picture open on my screen and eyeballed it while drawing the guidelines in with a water-based red felt tip marker.  It was supposed to be washable. <_<  I traced the red outlines with a Sharpie at first but it smeared too much, so I switched to a Faber-Castell permanent marker, which actually turned out to be better, with a finer tip, less bleeding, and a more opaque black.  I let it dry and rinsed my arm in water to wash off the red marker, but I couldn't get all of it off and I didn't want to scrub it and risk ruining the black lines.

I continued on with my day as usual, and had a shower and went to bed and when I woke up, it was fading already.:(

There's still a slight tinge of pink from the red marker, and the black ink is now grey.  If I wanted to touch it up, it would be much easier than starting from scratch since I just have to trace over the old lines.  I'm not sure if I want to, now that I know how high maintenance it is.

Well, it was an interesting experience.

 

Postscript: I showed my friends and they all said it looked fake.  -_-

@sheep I think it looked awesome! But I will tell you that Tharatariel and I ran into a few snags and ours didn't last overnight either. Pinterest failed me but I think we've figured out what we did wrong. First, we shouldn't have used eyeliner as a base, that got in the way of the sharpie connecting right to our skin. Secondly, Pinterest said that you need to put baby powder on it, and then hairspray, but our mom was like "what were you thinking hairspray is known to REMOVE ink from things". So now we're going to try again tomorrow night, (now with a fine tipped Sharpie as well, so they'll be less ginormous) and we're JUST going to use baby powder. We'll update when we can! We're determined to get it to work.

BTW I think your design is awesome and you did a great job...your friends are mean. :P
