is colorful feather body art is a great way to wear the watercolor tattoo trend temporarily. I used the Clearsnap Body Writer™ for Louisiana State University, Oregon State University, The University of Kansas from the NCAA Licensed Products. I went to an art college, that didn’t have sports, so my college pride is all artistic. However, I live in a city with a huge college and winning basketball team, so I can understand the fandom of college teams. The schools I chose for this project were based on their colors. I used the orange from Oregon State, the yellow and purple from Louisiana State University, and the blue from The University of Kansas.
The body writers are a roll on ink in a marker like tube. I rubbed a finger on the balls to get them flowing. They apply very wet, but dry quickly and are comfortable to wear. I blended the colors together on my daughter’s arm, creating a general feather shape. The watercolor style of body art tattoos is messy and abstract. I dabbed the body writers in the same spot, to create enough ink for drips to form. I used black liquid eyeliner to define the feather. You could use colored eyeliners instead. You could also omit this step, for a softer tattoo appearance.

To remove this temporary tattoo, use rubbing alcohol on a paper towel and wipe till the color fades as much as possible. If the eyeliner is stubborn, makeup remover or coconut oil should dissolve it completely. There might be some slight staining with the red tones, which is normal for any makeup product.
