Re: [BKARTS] searching for equipment



Skin artists create mimeographs of their line art. They then rub deodorant on the skin and press the mimeograph on. The purplish mimeograph ink bonds to the deodorant forming the transfer. They then tatoo over the lines, etc. Ingenious really.Some established artists tatoo freehand, but commercial demands for icons make the mimeograph technique fast and reliable.
