It's backwards. You have to print it backwards so it will trace on forward. You printed it forward and now it's on the arm backward.

Not if you don't do it often, it's just an idea to costumes and stuff, not to do it everyday of your life :3

Very simple, yet incredibly effective. I must remember this - I bet it lasts much longer than eyeliner drawings!

Hah, this is so much easier than what I did. I actually cut out the mark from paper and tried stenciling it in.. that didn't work so I just free-handed it. Will use this next time, definitely!
