I usually use sharpies but that's just me. Sharpies = magic

But I have a friend who's going as Kamina too lol so If you want to do a twin cosplay or something you should hit him up there

Fallain you have to many friends >>;

Haha, I do. ^^ off the top of my head I can list 10 of them that cosplay, and that's not including the ones i'm not thinking of or don't live in town with me. If it makes you feel any better though, the ones thats cosplaying Kamina and Agito are the same guy :) What can I say, i'm friendly ^^()

But seriously though, those fine tipped sharpies work wonders if you have the patience

If My Sister can get a Photo and some practice she can probably do it.

Really? my bro wants Blade's tats on his neck and the part that goes around his ear if he can get his hair cut right. You think your sis would do it?

Tattoos, you say? BOOM


Awesome method for tattoos.

This is helpful! last year, I was Kamina and while acrylic paint worked for the most part, soon as I started sweating, (like at the rave) itstarted to not only flake but bleed into my shirt i wore that night. this may be the best method

My boyfriend needs a tattoo for one of his costumes, so we're gonna go to a shop at the beach and get him a henna tattoo. As long as you take care of them, they last quite a while. Depending on where you are, some mall kiosks do them too.
