The rule requires you to choose 2 Power Tattoos (one per arm) of different colors. The possible combinations are: red / white background ,green / white background and green / red background.
Choose a Power Tattoo:
Tip: avoid to choose 2 Power Tattoos with the same symbol (e.g. Bull on red background and Bull on white background), otherwise your opponent will always choose the technique that beats this symbol to prevent you from using its effect.
1. Remove clear, protective top sheet.
2. Press Power Tattoo firmly onto forearm’s clean dry skin with design facing down.
3. Hold wet cloth against back of Power Tattoo, press down and make sure to wet it thoroughly.
4. Wait 30 to 45 seconds and peel of paper backing.
5. Gently rinse image with water for best effect.
6. Try not not to twist skin until tattoo has set (5 mins).
Early in the game, take the surprise (if your opponent doesn't yet know your Power Tattoos) to score two points with a Power Tattoo on a red background.
At the beginning of each assault, try to guess the fighting technique that your opponent will perform, based the Power Tattoos (particularly those on a red background) applied to his forearms. This is especially true if your opponent has dodged in the last assault (because you will score 1 point by performing the same technique as him).
If your opponent have the lead, remain calm and apply tactical changes by performing a fighting technique that he/she doesn't expect.
If you have already encountered this opponent and he has beaten you, remember his playing strategy and adapt yourself to surprise and make him doubt.
Saturate Power Tattoo with household rubbing alcohol or baby oil; wait 10 seconds, then rub away Power Tattoo with cotton ball OR lift Power Tattoo from dry skin using several pieces of transparent household tape.
Caution: Don’t apply to sensitive skin, near eyes, or if allergic to adhesive.
