Find temporary tattoo paper (Here)

I have always wanted a tattoo… a piece of permanent art on my skin. When I found temporary tattoo paper online, I knew it would be the perfect opportunity to test the waters and play around with a variety of designs. For this d.i.y. project, I used photoshop to create a couple delicate jewelry tattoos… that I think blend so beautifully when worn with other bracelets and rings. I’m definitely going to continue using these!!!

What are some of your tattoo inspirations?

tips:
- try a simple design first
- carefully and slowly peel off design to prevent ripping
- ask for help when placing onto skin
- choose an area on your body that you do not bend, otherwise may cause unwanted creases and wrinkles
- avoid contact with liquids, lasts until gets wet
- do not wrap around finger, wrist, etc too tightly... may cause tearing as worn

I want to borrow your creative brain! This is so cool! I love the cross on the finger. I have been itching to get another one soon (permanent) but maybe I should try this out first ;)

Everyone, please carefully consider putting INKJET INK onto your skin.

Sharpies will give you a rash if you put too much of it on your skin.
i caution you not to do this

Do you know where to get the cheapest deals on tattoo paper? I've looked everywhere and Amazon looks like the cheapest, but I'd love to find a wholesaler to buy them direct. Thanks!
