Here are my supplies. The image I've chosen is a traditional tattoo swallow from a vintage tattoo book I own. I'm using the sleeve to protect the page as I trace.
If you have an image on a sheet of paper you don't mind drawing on, you could use a rolled up news paper wrapped in your image secured with a rubber band.
My book rolled up inside the sleeve.
Taking care not to snag the nylon, gather your tights toward the toe and carefully stretch over the image.
I want the image on the outside ankle I position the image where this is on the stocking.
Using a sharpie,I traced over the swallow outlining it first then colouring it in.
Leave to dry COMPLETLY ( about ten minutes ) then ease the stocking off the roll .
All done! The key is a real tattoo, it shows how effective they are! The nearer to your skin colour the nylons are, the better this will look.
Thanks for viewing ! Xx
