Step 1: Supplies!

Okay, so the supplies you will need are:
Masking tape (optional)
Glitter Nail Polish (for the base if you want, but still optional)
Paper (optional, Its for If you want to cut out a stencil)
Nail polish remover
Dry body glitter (don't use glitter glue)
Krazy glue (I find that brush-on works best for me!)

Really all you need is Krazy glue and Glitter, as long as you have a steady hand for painting the design of the glue!

Step 2: Cutting out a stencil (optional)

In this step, which is completely optional, you will cut a stencil out of paper.

Step 3: Taping it on! (optional)

Okay, next Is the taping part, I choose to use masking tape because It doesn't hurt too much when being removed, you can use any tape you want!

Step 4: Next, we make the base! (Optional, I did this once for extra glitz)

For people who are using the stencil:
Okay, so now you have to take the glitter polish and paint within the stencil.
For those who aren't using a stencil:
This step is completely optional, It just adds more glitz! Just follow the step above but forget about the 'stencil' part!

Step 5: Now for the fun part! :D

Okay, Now you are gonna paint out the design of your tattoo... Only you have to paint it in glue!
After painting the glue, you have to, quickly, with a q-tip, spread a rather thick amount of glitter on the design of the glue, before it dries!

Step 6: Done!
