Prepare & equip yourself first for the sharpie tattoo. Things you will require are: Sharpie pen, tracing paper, scissor, pencil or a gel pen with fine tip, cotton, picture of the tattoo, rubbing alcohol and talcum powder.
Now let’s go ahead with the procedure and follow the steps:
- First of all, select the tattoo design you are looking for. You can search for the pictures in magazines or can search online and get it on the paper. Once you are ready with the design you want it as your tattoo, trace that design using the tracing paper and a fine-tip pencil or pen. Now flip over the tracing paper and trace the same design with the gel pen or the marker to make it dark.
- Make the tracing paper convenient to hold for the placement by cutting its sides.
- Clean the skin of the placement area with the rubbing alcohol.
- Place the marked side tattoo on the placement area of the body. Firmly press the design till the tattoo gets imprinted on the skin. Avoid movements to get a clear tattoo instead of broken shaky lines.
- Remove the tracing paper and check whether you have got the tattoo print perfectly. If not, scrub the tattoo with the cotton soaked in rubbing alcohol to clear the tattoo & repeats the above process.
- If you are satisfied with the imprinted design & its visibility, trace the design with the sharpie to give a bold look to the design. You can also make the fillings if the tattoo is demanding the same. Finishing outline can be done using the fine tip of the pen.
- Sprinkle & apply the layer of powder for setting the tattoo print and absorbing the excess ink.
