I put handmade mosaic tiles a year ago and it sticks. I created small line and made an inside border because design :D My wife insisted so i had no choise. Nevertheless, i have no bad feelings to recommend silicone as a method to place one on another.

Most people opt for this option now days. It helps to avoid the huge job of tearing out the old tiles.

Well, I agree with the most of the replies here also if you installed it anyway, new tiles would deteriorate soon and it will be more expensive to install new tiles later again.
