You Will Need
- Almost Nothing
Print your images using an inkjet printer and plain paper as a test run. When you’re satisfied with how they look, print the images on the glossy side of the decal paper. Print 1 sheet at a time to avoid jams.
Allow the ink to dry fully, about a few minutes. Remove the clear side of the adhesive sheet and apply it to the printed decal paper. Cut around each tattoo design.
Ink yourself! Choose a spot for your tiny tattoo. Remove the adhesive backing from the decal paper and apply it to your skin, pressing firmly for about 20 seconds. Use a sponge or cloth to wet the paper for 60 seconds and then peel away the paper to reveal the design.
