body paint/tattoos
so for a cosplay i'm planning i need to have runic tattoos all over my body - well, upper torso at least. as much as i'd like them i can't afford alcohol activated paints, so i'm wondering, what have you guys used for cosplay tattoos in the past? they need to last all day preferably, i can cover them up if they don't come off the day after!

For smaller tattoos, eyeliner pens are pretty handy. But that might be expensive if you are going to be covered in the things.

You used to be able to get 'tattoo' pens, they were sort of like sharpies but skin safe. I'm no sure if they're still about but it might be worth looking them up

You can buy paper which you can print on to to make your own tatoos. I used it for my ouroburos symbol on my Lust cosplay and it peeled off pretty easilly in the shower afterwards.

You can buy sheets of the transfer paper that tattoo artists use, and transfer the outlines you need onto your skin that way. It's fairly cheap to buy in bulk if you need loads, and means you have an outline to follow instead of drawing the design blind =)
I use this sort of pen when I need to draw on tattoos for cosplay, washes off easy enough with make up remover/ facial wipes when you're done. =D
