We love tattoos around here, and after seeing tattoo eggs around the internet, I decided to make my own by simply printing them on temporary tattoo paper. You can make a tattoo from almost any image or photo.
- temporary tattoos or buy Silhouette’s tattoo paper making kit to print your own
- Sponge or towel, Water
- ink-jet printer with color ink and capable of printing photos
-To make your own temporary tattoos: Search online for FREE Clip arts images of your liking and save them to your computer.
-In a word document , open up all the clip arts and arrange them into a new file to a maximum size of 1.5 inches wide (Make sure you have the ruler visible so you can see the size of the clip arts). I used my silhouette software to minimized the images, thinking I needed to cut them afterwards but if the images are not in a png file or in a Silhouette image file, the cutting settings will not work. To make it easier for me and save a ton of time, just print the clip arts on the tattoo paper. Once the ink has dried, place the adhesive sheet on top of the tattoo paper; scraping tightly over the tattoo paper using a credit card. Skip the cutting steps on the instructions from the Silhouette Tattoo Paper Making Kit.
– Cut out your tattoos as close to the outer edge of the image.
– Remove the plastic paper of the tattoo and apply it to the egg using a wet sponge (Just as you would normally do into your skin).
