Am I wrong about my definition of a cappuccino?

I have a question. I've been trying to do "latte art" making a heart design on my homemade lattes. I have a Starbucks Barista brand home espresso maker with steam wand. The videos on youtube about latte art all seem to have a very thick milk. Mine is never that thick. I usually use skim milk...if I switched to 2% or whole, would the milk be thicker? Can I do this at all with skim milk?

Latte Art

I need help in understanding how to make a heart design on my homemade lattes. I have a Starbucks Barista machine, and have watched several videos on Youtube. I think the problem might be that the milk I have been using (skim) doesn't seem to be as thick and even in texture as that on Youtube. Any hints? Do I need to use 2% or full fat milk?
