Thermal transfer paper is an absolute necessity for the modern tattoo artist. Spirit Thermal Tattoo Transfer Paper was designed specifically with the body art industry in mind, and works with hand tracing as well as infrared or thermal printing machines. This paper allows for the tattoo artist to draw or copy any design onto the paper before applying it to the skin. While a thermo-copied tattoo stencil may give the artist an absolutely precise image rendering, many skilled body artists prefer hand drawing. The advantage associated with hand-copying (as compared to thermal printing) is that it gives the tattoo artist a high degree of control, allowing you to make custom changes to any design.
ReproFX Spirit Thermal Tattoo Transfer Paper boasts highly visible purple dyes and ripstop sheets to ensure the highest quality stencil each and every time. Once your stencil is ready for application, the manufacturer recommends using a transfer cream to both protect the skin and assist with the transfer quality. Once the transfer cream has been applied, place the side of the paper with the stencil directly onto the cream and hold it in place. Be sure not to move the stencil once it has come in contact with the skin and/or transfer cream, as this will cause the blurring of lines and diminish the benefits of using transfer paper in the first place. Carefully remove the paper and let the stencil ink set for a few minutes before wiping off the cream and revealing the stencil markings. Now it is time for the actual body art process to begin!
