I have a friend planning to cosplay as Nio Hashiri from Akuma no Riddle. She is covered in red phoenix tatoos below the neck, I was wondering if there was any pattern for body painting?

For tattoos that extensive if it were me I'd wear a painted body stocking. That way it's reusable and once you paint it the first time you don't have to sit through painting it every morning of an event. From experience body painting takes forever, and while I did full-body I'd imagine precise detail painting can take just as long if not longer.

Other than that my only thought is to make a stencil that you can tape to the body for the torso parts. Wrapping stripes along arms/legs isn't too tough to freehand if you just lightly block it out first.

A pattern of the design can be made before hand on tracing paper or tattoo transfer paper. Trace out the design then simply apply the design to the skin. The can be done to create real looking or FX tattoos or simply as a pattern to follow when painting with classic brush or airbrush.

Since this thread is a few months old I will not go into detail unless requested, but the process is easy.
