Darn these Jrockers for getting their arms all tattooed up. ...Makes it so much more difficult for accurate cosplay. I'm no help on describing Kyo's tats but 2 of my favorites are the same way (Kiyoharu and HAKUEI). I share your pain.

But! I can help a bit for the method. I don't recommend Sharpies (they are not made for skin). Gell pens aren't made for skin either, but I've never head of anyone having problems with them (other than that they can streak a bit if you're filling in areas). Liquid eyeliners work well if you let them dry and then lightly powder over them. They also sell temp tattoo ink at some body-mod sites, but I can't remember any specific sites anymore. One of the malls here has a temp tattoo stand where they airbrush people and do custom designs as well as flash. It's not a mall I go to regularly so I don't know if they were a permanant setup or if they have shops elsewhere.

While walking through OfficeMax I saw something that I have to pick up one of these days. They had temporary tattoo printer paper! You could draw or edit a picture of his tattoos on your computer and then print it on the paper and it'd be just like any normal temporary tattoo! :bigtu:

there are tattoo pens that work pretty well

you can also try ballpoint pens if you're in a pinch and you CANNOT get ink poisoning from those pens, only sharpies. or it you're a great artist, draw it with eyeliner.

as for pics i couldn't find any that really showed them clearly

I've personally not had very good experience with temporary tattoo printer paper. Now, I've never used the kind at Office Max, but my little sister had some a while back that we tried out. It was really cool in the sense that you could make the design on the computer and print it out with an inkjet printer, but putting it on skin was the disappointing part. Instead of just the ink rubbing onto your skin like a normal temp tattoo, it transfers this plastic-ey stuff that wrinkles up really easily, not looking great. I'm not sure that all types of tattoo paper are like that, but the kinds I've used all have been. I'd suggest liquid eyeliner or a tattoo pen, or at least have these around and maybe practice drawing the design in case you have trouble with the printer tattoo paper too.
