  1. Mix corn starch and hot water

    Pour 1/4 of a cup of corn starch into a small bowl. Add 1/4 of a cup of hot water to the bowl and stir the mixture with your spoon. Wait until the corn starch has evenly dissipated into the water before working on the next mixture.

  2. Mix drink mix and hot water in a separate bowl

    Take out a separate bowl and empty two of your unsweetened drink mixes into it. Make sure you are using the colors you would like for the tattoo, or combine different drink mix packets to create the color you need. Add 1 cup of hot water to your bowl, and stir the mixture with a clean spoon until it has completely dissolved.

  3. Combine both mixtures and stir

    Take the bowl with the corn starch mix and slowly pour it into the drink mix bowl. With your spoon, mix all of the substances together. Once the coloring is evenly distributed and the texture is thick, stop mixing.

  4. Paint your design

    Paint your desired design. Let the paint set on your skin for one hour before rinsing with warm water. The design should last for a few days.
