Step 1: Supplies

Gel Pens

Water

Cloth

Step 2: Draw Out Temp Tattoo

Start out by drawing the tattoo design you want with a gel pen onto the wax paper

NOTE: Gel pens will produce the best results for the temporary tattoo

Step 3: Place Wax Paper on Skin

After the design is drawn out place the wax paper design side down on the skin where you want the tattoo to be.

Step 4: Dampen

Dampen the cloth you have with some water and softly dampen the wax paper.

Leave the wax paper in place for 60 seconds to ensure the best transfer

Step 5: Finished

After 60 seconds slowly peel up on the wax paper and admire your awesome temporary tattoo.

I tried two tattoos in this instructable. The first one was in gold gel pen and it turned out great, but I could not photograph it. The other was in black but it didn't come out as well. In this case practice makes perfect!

Enjoy.
