Hi! My name is Rick Wyckoff and you can check out our website at avatart2.com. I am here

on behalf of expertvillage.com and we are talking about tips and tricks for tattoos.

One of the things that you will often see when you are getting a tattoo is they will

take a line drawing of whatever your design is and in order to get it on your skin, they

use a piece of thermographic transfer paper. Now this is sort of a dated or antiquated

thing. This paper they used to use for making transparencies for overhead projectors and

the light but also for Ditto masters in schools before they had copiers and they had this

thing you cranked and had a drum on it. Basically this image would be transferred through this

carbon onto this image I mean onto this piece of paper and they take this piece of paper

and they put it on the machine and it would print out a bunch of carbon copies. But what

we do is put this through a thermographic transfer maker so after I've run it through

the thermographic transfer maker basically I end of with an exact duplicate of the line

drawing. So I remove the carbon copy from the rest of it and this basically adheres

to the skin after it is moistened a little bit with soap and water.
