NOTE:  This is my first Instructable, so don't be too harsh on the criticism.  :)

Kool-Aid tattoos are a easy, fun, and cheap to make. They also don't leave permanent marks on the skin. So lets stop reading and start making!

Special thanks to my older cousin, adsandy, for helping me on my first published Instructable.

Step 1: Gathering Materials

Here are the things you need, they should be pretty easy to find.
- 1 Kool-Aid packet (any flavor)
- cup
- paint brush
- food coloring (any colors)
- paper towels
- 1/2 cup water

Obviously, the flavor of Kool-Aid that you use will determine the color of the final tattoo.  We used Cherry with a drop of yellow food coloring. 

Step 2: Mix It Up

Mix all the ingredients together in a cup.

Step 3: Start Creating

Dip your paint brush into the mixture.  Make the desired work/shape on your skin.  Be wary of the fact that the mixture could run down you arm.  Wait one minute and pat the tattoo dry. 

Step 4: Repeat

Repeat the step before multiple times until desired darkness.   The Tattoo should get a bit darker each time you repeat. 

Step 5: Enjoy!

Enjoy your new look.  The tattoo should last 1 day with normal use, but may be scrubbed off immediately.
