I only have one tattoo that I got over ten years ago, but I remember and know from watching others/reality TV shows, that most often the artist will draw the outline on a transfer sheet and then apply that to the client's skin before starting with the permanent ink. My question is--is this transfer paper specially designed for this purpose, or would the same material be used for different purposes? IE--say a piece of torn transfer paper is a clue at a crime scene. Would it be able to be identified as "tattoo transfer paper" or just "carbon paper, unknown use"? (I am assuming there isn't a magical traveling CSI involved that can see skin cells or whatever because I don't want to get into that as it's not a procedural).

Why don't I ask my nephew the tattoo artist?  I'll get back to you.

Sorry Thrash.  I'm not getting an answer very quickly.  Still trying.

It's okay--I am actually planning on getting a tattoo at some point in the next three months or so, so I'll ask my artist.
