Alois Trancy Tattoo

I'm not sure if this is the right thread. I have no idea. I'm a noob, lol. But, I just wanted to know how to do Alois Trancy's tongue tattoo.

. . .i don't think you can get a tattoo on your tongue. . .but i could be wrong o.o

but heres my two cents 8D
most of the things people use for fake tattooes on their skin are normal toxic[if consumed], and wash off easily. . .so i think it'd just come off. I'm pretty sure i saw a thread like this with someone asking about gluttony's tattoo =/

Oh really, because I searched it up and someone said this:

But. I'm not sure. It's very confusing. I don't want to put toxic things in my mouth.

You might want to read over these threads discussing tongue tattoos. There are many ideas and suggestions in them [some specific to Alois] so you may find an idea that will work for you. Good luck!

Off the top of my head, the only thing I can think of that is safe, is use a stencil and straight food coloring to stain the tongue. It still would not last long though, and you would have to make sure your tongue was dry before putting the food coloring on.

I have remembered that there is actually a mouth stain that a friend of mine used on a film set. I am attempting to track down the brand as a google search for it is failing. It still needs to be re-applied, as it wont last that long, but is actually meant to stain teeth, gums and the tongue. You could use that and a stencil as well. Now I hope I can track this stuff down

I would just draw the image on a thin piece of clear plastic and stick it on my tongue when I take a picture. ^^; You don't want to take too many pictures with your tongue sticking out anyway.

I agree with above. I used a plastic card protector sleeve.

Projector sheets you can print on a laser printer would be best if you want a perfect copy.

But drawing on with a permanent marker and making sure the ink side it stays face up would work.

I actually found this:

What you need is some clear vinyl. It's have plastic garment bags and window sticker decals are made of (found at automotive stores). Find the size you want of the circle by making demos with paper. Color in the vinyl of a square shape with some nice markers like Copics or Sharpies in the multi colors rather and the basic ones since Alois' tattoo is kinda pastel ONTO the vinyl.

Spray some "spray adhesive" on top the design. Add another piece of square vinyl on top. This will secure the design from being affected by your saliva. Cut out the circle. Starting with circles to being with makes it harder for you to stick the 2 pieces together, perfectly. You can also cut the inside out but that gives the potential of the vinyl ripping since the design is so close to the edge and thin.

Stick onto your tongue for photos. I wouldn't recommend keeping it in your mouth all the time because your mouth will make crazy tons of spit.

I always think of those fruit-roll ups with the designs on them, and if you place your tongue on them the design comes off on your tongue. Anyone else remember those? =D

I really need to stop talking to bananas. It's making me confused.

I don't think you can really do a tattoo on your tongue. My best friend did an Alois cosplay and we couldn't find anyway to do it without putting poison in her mouth. In the end, we went without a tattoo and just photoshopped it in after out photo shoot.

Liquid latex. Put it on some clear guage vinyl trace the design on it. Wait for it to dry, peel it off and stick it on. Its a great way to do regular tattoos as well. Because its on your tongue your saliva will act like an adhesive.

Don't believe its toxic and Its better than elmers glue since that crap is water based.
The clear above thought of method with the vinyl is good as well.
