Join Jessica Reyes, from the Main Branch of the Abilene Public Library, as she demonstrates how easy it is to make Temporary Tattoos and Body Art. She hosted a workshop at the library that was such a hit, we decided to upload a how-to video on the steps she took to make it happen. You won't believe how easy it is to do, and it's a hit with teens and young adults. Check it out and look for more Project Teen Videos each month, featuring great craft ideas for teens from the Abilene Public Library.
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!

WHAT CAN I USE INSTEAD OF EYE LINER? Gel pen, sharpie.
WHAT'S A GOOD SUBSTITUTE FOR LIQUID BANDAGE? Liquid bandage isn't absolutely essential. It just helps the tattoo last longer. Some subscribers have suggested using hairspray. Though I haven't tried it, I'd guess that it could work pretty well. Others recommend nail polish which I would definitely not advise.
CAN I USE NAIL POLISH ON TOP? I wouldn't recommend it. It would definitely leave a visible clear layer over the design and I can't imagine that would feel good on the skin.
HOW LONG DOES IT LAST?
Without the liquid bandage, it lasts about 2 days before fading. With the liquid bandage, it lasts about 4 days without fading. This might vary depending on which brand of eye liner you use, how much liquid bandage you apply, & how vigorously you wash the area when you shower.
DOES IT TRANSFER TO CLOTHING?
No. I tested one temporary tattoo in an area that would have to come into contact with clothing and the black ink did not bleed onto clothing (if I set it with powder).
WHAT TYPE OF EYE LINER SHOULD I GET?
A felt tip pen that draws a good opaque black line. It doesn't have to be waterproof. (I don't recommend the Wet n' Wild liner I used).
1. Use an eye liner that comes in the form of a felt tip pen. Anything that allows more precision & control will be helpful.
2. The period between tracing the design on the wax paper with eye liner and transferring to the skin is important. Try to do this as fast as possible to get a good outline.
3. If you don't want your tattoo to smear, set with powder!
