Want a tattoo without any regrets? Here are some easy steps to make your own temporary tattoo with the use of eyeliner, stencil, and printed paper.

While designing the temporary tattoo keep in mind that the eyeliner tattoo will look great with simple bold strokes. Moreover, design the size of the tattoo according to your liking.
- Select the eyeliner
Get the eyeliner which can be sharpened, not oily, nor shiny. An eyeliner pencil which is smooth, dry marks which would not cause a smudge and would be long-lasting.
– Black eyeliner is best for an attractive fake tattoo, but you can choose any color you wish.
– Do not use liquid eyeliner because it would be tough to handle the eyeliner. –Try to practice the design on a paper.
- Draw the tattoo on your skin
Draw the design on the area you want. If you do not like the design or made a mistake you can wash it off and make it again.
- Spray hairspray on the design
The hairspray will keep the temporary tattoo from coming off for a few hours. Just lightly spray the hairspray on the design. You can also use clear nail polish.
The tattoo lasts for a day and you can wash it off with warm water. If you used a clear nail polish you can peel it off or use a nail remover.
