Patterned tights have been hugely popular for a long while. There are harajuku fashion snaps featuring all sorts of different patterned tights, from sheer to colourful, and from hand-made to digitally printed. 
I think they are also often called 'tattoo tights', probably because the designs on sheer tights makes them look like tattoos, but the images themselves are sometimes inspired by tattoo designs.

 ✧・゚: *✧・゚:*  *:・゚✧*:・゚✧
For this tutorial, I decided to make my own patterned tights by with a simple design, rather than going for an all-over pattern.
Decorated with images that reflect your taste, these tights would be a great way to personalize a simple dress co-ordinate

(ノ◕ヮ◕)ノ~ Tip!『✧~ A vertical, narrow strip of pattern at the front of your legs will help make them legs appear longer instead of widening it, as all-over patterns often can~✧』

✿Fabric markers can be purchased at any art supply stores.

✿ You can use a pencil to lightly draw the design and then trace it with the marker.

✿I melted my tights while heat-setting it, so really be careful! 
✿If you don't heat-set the tights the marker will smudge.

✿voila! Super easy.
