In this video, I show you how to do a DIY custom temporary tattoo!
Come back next week!

Hey, I'm Holly Conrad! You may know me from Heroes of Cosplay. Sometimes you need to fake tattoos, whether for a cosplay costume, a Halloween costume, or living a lie!

When I cosplayed as Cecil from Welcome to Night Vale, I learned how to make believable custom temporary tattoos at home using tattoo paper. In this first episode of Cosplay Class, I'll show you how to make and apply custom fake tattoos that look super real. I'll also show you how to remove the tattoos so you don't end up with weird residue on your arm forever like those temporary tattoos from when you were a kid.

I'm demonstrating this technique on my husband Ross. Despite everything Ross says, getting temporary tattoos doesn't hurt as much as getting real tattoos! Ugh.

Thanks for watching!

New Zealand tattoo artist offers to give temporary tattoos to sick children
A tattoo artist has offered to airbrush temporary tattoos on to patients in New Zealand's Starship Children's Health hospital.

Benjamin Lloyd posted a video of himself using an airbrush to tattoo a young boy to Facebook on Saturday, and offered to tattoo similar sleeves on Starship patients if he received 50 likes on one of his images.

"Nothing brings me more joy than boosting a kids [sic] confidence with a custom tattoo 50 likes and ill [sic] go to starship hospital and tat all the kids up. It's airbrushed on (not permanent) peace," he wrote.

Benjamin Lloyd uses an airbrush to spray on temporary tattoos.

His post has since received more than 151,000 likes.

"Well it looks like im [sic] off to starship watch this space!" Mr Lloyd has replied.

He later clarified that the ink used in the airbrush was organic and non-toxic.

His posts have attracted thousands of replies, including from parents of Starship patients who have expressed interest in the offer.

Some users have criticized Mr Lloyd for tattooing a child, although it is mostly unclear whether they realized the tattoo was temporary.

Make your own Temporary Tattoos

Now you can make your own Temporary Tattoos with or without a Printer

This is such a great idea for kids birthday parties, id tattoos so your kids wont get lost, pass ins for events, letting kids be creative and draw up their very own Temporary Tattoos on the spot or for competitions.

The idea is for lots and lots of FUN

The process is so simple. If you have an ink jet printer put he glossy side of the paper into the printer, print the images in reverse and then apply the Liquiskin TM skin adhesive over the sheet of images. ( The ink jet tattoo paper can also be printed by a Laser Printer) Use a ruler over the sheet to smooth out any bubbles

Next cut out tattoos and apply to the skin with sponge and water.

If you don't have a printer draw your images directly onto the A4 sheet of paper using pens or colored markers. Wait a few minutes for ink to dry. Be as creative as you want but make sure that the entire A4 sheet is full of images before you apply the Liquiskin TM Skin film adhesive over the top.

This concept is for fun and the tattoos have a slight shine to it. You can now literally make up your own Temporary Tattoos INSTANTLY.

Tattoos will last up to one week and can be removed instantly with perfume, alcohol,or baby oil.
