Good brand of body paint for fake tattoos?

I'm cosplaying CL from 2ne1. (Clap your hands MV - the camo outfit with the tattooed arms.)
I plan on making a stencil. But I've never used body paint really, so I don't know any good brands. I only need black. Anyone care to share their experience with some brands? Also price ranges...

PAX will probably be best, it won't rub off if you bump into anything or rub the tattoo against your costume.

A good choice is alcohol activated like Kryolan Body Illustrator (BIC), Skin Illustrator or DuraColor. Apply using 99% alcohol which you get a the pharmacy or from the makeup suppliers. We often send a 1/2 oz comp to people who just need a small cake of makeup for play. Ask suppliers are helpful.
