Intro: Print Anything on Your Skin: Tattoo/party Stamp
Here is a quick and cheap way to print anything on your skin. This can be used if you ever need to make or fake a tattoo or a party stamp.
Step 1: What You Need
Items needed :
1. A piece of paper
3. An inkjet printer
Step 2: Cover With Tape
Cover the area you want to print on with tape.
Step 3: Print
Print the text or image on the taped side of the paper using your inkjet printer. Don't forget to flip any text horizontally before so that it's still readable.
As the ink does not stick to the tape, you will be able to transfer it to any surface it comes in contact with.
Step 4: Transfer
Place your skin on the paper (or the other way around) and press gently.
Do it once without shaking
Step 5: Results
For better results keep the images small with high contrast and not too many details.
Depending on the print quality (the better quality the more ink you get) you will be able to reuse a transfer two to three times.
- Try it on something else than your skin : use it as an instant rubber stamp...
- Make a portable version: once the tape is printed you can cut around and use it anywhere
- Clean & Repeat : using a tissue or a piece of cloth, clean the taped area and reuse it over and over again...
- Draw directly on the tape using a non permanent marker pen
