So, yes, you can use the regular printer to create tattoo stencils. However, you cannot use regular paper. What you need instead is thermal paper, carbon transfer paper, or even temporary tattoo paper. All papers can be used with an inkjet or laser printer, so don’t worry.
Most tattoo parlors use a machine called a thermal imager to make their stencils. This literally saves hours of tracing time by simply inserting your tattoo design into the machine and transferring it to special thermal paper in seconds.
The first thing to do is make sure your computer is connected to your printer before printing your tattoo design. You will then need to place your tattoo transfer paper in the printer just as you would regular paper, making sure it is facing the right way if using carbon paper.

The stencil printing function is achieved by a single material, namely solder paste, which consists of solder and flux. The paste also acts as an adhesive during component placement and solder reflow. The stickiness of the paste keeps the components in place.

Hectograph transfer paper is the best option for this, and the paper consists of two sheets of paper. On the top sheet you will draw the tattoo design and on the bottom sheet is the carbon paper that your design will be copied onto, giving you a perfect stencil for your tattoo design.
Can you use a regular printer for iron-on transfers? Absolutely! While a higher quality printer may result in a slightly sharper image on clothing, there’s no reason why you can’t use any inkjet printer to customize t-shirts and other apparel.
Inkjet transfer paper is designed for use with standard inkjet printers, although the question of what type of ink to use is often a source of confusion. Most types of inkjet printers and inks would work with the transfer paper. You don’t have to change anything or modify your printer.
Rub the clear deodorant bar or Vaseline onto the area of skin where you want to apply the ink design. Make sure that the sticky substance is massaged thoroughly into the skin and that it remains slightly damp. Press the design side of the paper firmly against dampened skin.
