HOLLY: Hey Everyone! I’m Commander Holly and
recently I cosplayed as Cecil from Welcome to Night Vale. He has tattoos all over him
so I had to figure out how to do fake tattoos. But everyone just thought they were real and
thought I was a crazy weirdo! But I’m going to show you how to make them anyway! **Cosplay Class Song** First, you’re going to need some supplies. Transfer Paper, Images, Water and a Rag for
Applying, Scissors, Throw-Away Brushes and Prosaid, Telesis, and a Rag, and a Powder
Puff and some Powder. HOLLY: So Ross is here to help us and he’s going to go and get his first tattoo. HOLLY: Little slugger 😀 ROSS:I chose the very popular Mom tattoo, but in my eyes, this
is spelt wrong, we actually spell it M-U-M, not M-O-M. HOLLY: It’s true. Well, you live
in America now. ROSS:It’s true, I do! HOLLY: So let’s get him tattooed! HOLLY: Where do you want
it, Ross? ROSS:On my right arm. HOLLY:Ok, right there? ROSS:Yep. HOLLY:So, lift your
sleeve up. ROSS:Grrr! Flex the guns! HOLLY:Put that gun show away! ROSS:Flex the guns for
the mums! HOLLY: So we’ll put it right here, ok? HOLLY: So, now that we know the placement, now
we can paint on the Prosaid. Prosaid is a special effects adhesive that you can get
from special effects stores that will be in the show notes on my blog so you can buy it
on your own. Make sure to keep it thin, though. Make sure to do it really thin because if
you leave like gloopity glops on there, it’s going to get weird under the tattoo. I’m going
to put a thin layer on here, so you can see me brushing a thin layer, make sure to get
it to the edges, that’s really important. ROSS:Just like a real tattoo, this is also
extremely painful. HOLLY: Now I’m going to brush a little bit… ROSS:OW! It’s painful. Ooh feel those needles! HOLLY: Stop! Stop it! HOLLY:UGhhhh! HOLLY: So now we have a thin layer. ROSS:It’s torture. HOLLY:We’re
going to wait a few seconds for this to dry. HOLLY: Make sure there’s no gloopity glops. HOLLY: STAHP. HOLLY: Ok, so now we’ve placed where our tattoo’s going to go. HOLLY: Make sure it’s towards camera.
You ready? ROSS:No…. HOLLY:Make sure that you have one even motion. Ross:Ahhhh!!! HOLLY:Stop!
It doesn’t hurt!! HOLLY: Alright, so now I’m going to evenly put water on it. So what I’m just
doing is putting water on the tattoo. So I’m going to try to get it real soaked, around
the edges particularly. And you can do this anywhere, on your neck, like on your face,
you can put them anywhere. ROSS: Really? HOLLY: Yes, you can. ROSS: Would it work on your
genits? ROSS: Is this the bit that hurts? This is the bit that hurts. HOLLY: So make sure, as
you pull it off, that nothing is sticking and if it does, you can tap it down with a
little bit more water. So if you want to make sure your rag is nice and wet. HOLLY: There we go!
It’s all about patience. HOLLY: Hooray! HOLLY: Alright, so now we have…. ROSS: Just in time for Mother’s
Day. ROSS: When’s Mother’s Day? HOLLY: It… passed already. ROSS: Missed it! HOLLY: So now, before you
touch it, WARNING! DO NOT touch it yet! ROSS: That’s where the pain comes from. HOLLY: What you
want to do is let it air dry just for a second and then get yourself some translucent powder
and a powder puff. ROSS:Is this where the pain starts? HOLLY:NOOOO! HOLLY: Just a little powder, and there you go. Stop
it! HOLLY: So that’s it! Now you have a tattoo! What do you think? ROSS:Hai Mom!
