Introduction: How to Make a Quick Simple Tattoo for a Costume

I just recently went to ComiCon and Dressed up as a Slytherine Student.  I needed a way to make a DarkMark that would wash off later so I didn't get in trouble at school .

Step 1: Materials

The Materials you need should be very easy to find.

Sharpie
Paper
Tape
Printer
Scissors

Step 2: First Things First

Now what you need to do is find a picture from the internet that you want to use as your "tattoo". You'll probably want an image that is black and white and has little to no detail.

Step 3: Print

Now you must transfer your image from the digital world to the real world. PRINT IT. 

Step 4: Cut

Cut out around your picture.

Step 5: Tape

Now take three pieces of tape, close to the same size of your picture, and put them on both sides and the top of your picture. and tape it to your body where you want the "tattoo". 

Step 6: Trace

Now take your sharpie and trace the outline of your picture

Step 7: Color and Detail

Now that you have the basic outline on your body darken it and add all the details you want.

Step 8: Finish

Now go out and rock your "tattoo"

Better still; get someone else to draw on your arm (it's a bit easier).

Well, this is for those of us who don't have anyone with artistic abilities around 24/7
