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).
