So, I have a friend who is planning to cosplay a formal version of Lt. Hawkeye to an upcoming convention. (I'm going to do a formal Roy to match her. >:]) We plan to have the back of her dress be super low so she can show the awesome tattoo on Hawkeye's back. However, I have very little experience in the world of body art. Does anyone know what I could use so that I could draw or stencil the tattoo on her back a day or so beforehand that will only need touchup each morning of the convention despite showers (and where I might find it)? The goal is to have it last 4 or 5 days (though up to a couple weeks would be totally fine) with only a little fading in the interim.
The original idea was to use Copic markers or some other sort of artist marker, but that seems rather ineffective and expensive...:P Not to mention, marker tends to look like -marker- on skin, instead of tattooed ink. I know there are those airbrush tattoos out there, but I've got a feeling that acquiring airbrushers might be rather expensive (unless I can just use normal marker/ink/paint airbrushers?)
(This thread will hopefully help those out there who want to cosplay Scar, too).
