Temporary children’s tattoos are undergoing a resurgence of popularity again at the moment, and I thought it might be fun to let the boys create their own tattoos using ink-jet printable tattoo paper This took a bit of tracking down, but eventually I managed to find some. It was easy to use, and the finished product was not only completely unique and personal but also worked really well.
I ‘cheated’ a little, in that the artwork the boys produced for the tattoos were just drawings with no colour, so I digitally coloured them in Photoshop first before printing out the tattoos. However this really isn’t necessary, and I also left some uncoloured which I thought made them look especially cool. Or kids can colour their own drawings, and then simply scan them in and print out with minimal effort.
The printable tattoo paper is relatively expensive, so it’s worth making the most of it by packing in as many drawings on a sheet as you can!
