Hello Crissey: DIY Tattoo Tights/Stockings Tutorial

hellocrissey:

Sorry for not posting often! :( But as promised, here’s another easy DIY tutorial! :) I’ve been seeing this trend for quite sometime now and I think it really looks cute ! I’ll be teaching you how to transfer your design/drawing on to your stockings. If you want to use a design you found on the internet, please make sure you’re going to use it personally / do not make any form of profit from the material — better yet, contact the artist and ask permission if you can use his/her illustration/design :) Art theft is not cool. There are dozens of sites that provide stock illustration/vector/materials — all of which you can use! (Make sure to read the copyright/description before downloading and using any)

MATERIALS:

• Tights / Stockings (nude or beige)

• Fabric Pen (Available in bookstores / office warehouse) — If you can find FABRIC PAINT PENS that will be much better and fade/smudge proof

• Carton / Used folder

• Masking Tape

***

STEP 1:


Print out your design (8.5” x 11”). If you’re using a black pen, it’ll be better if you print it out in gray/light color so you won’t get confused when you’re tracing over the design.

After printing out the desired design, tape the sheet on to your carton/folder. Make sure to tape all sides to avoid any paper movements. 

***

STEP 2:

Once attached, roll up your carton until you form an arch.

Tip: You can measure the arch width using your thigh :p

Tape both sides to hold the cartons form/ hold it in place

***

Step 3:

Insert your carton inside the leg of your stockings.

Make sure to push it down to the area where the stockings start to get thinner. *see dotted lines ~ Please note that the area above the dotted lines will not be visible unless of course you’re going commando/no shorts/no skirt HEHE :p

***

Step 4:

Grabe your fabric pen and carefully trace over the lineart :)
PS: Buy the fine tip pen to make tracing details easier.
Be patient! :))
***
Step 5:

Allow the ink to settle in and dry overnight *just to be sure* although it dries as fast as 5 min ._. hihi
You should have something like this.

FINAL PRODUCT:
Super easy right? :) Show me yours if you make one ^u^ Hope this helps! 
This is super cheap too! Cost me around P40 (stockings) and (P75) for the pen ~ roughly P150? :)

The worst feeling ever is when I have to hold back my tears. No matter how much is about to burst out of me, it always dwells the same. The stress being put on my throat, the tears building up in my eyes, and the heartbreak soaring through my body.
