Today, we will be learning how to add a colored tattoo on your body in a very realistic way in Photoshop. 

Adding a tattoo, or testing the result before actually getting one, is easy and fun with simple Photoshop techniques. Main tools we are going to be using would be Liquify Filter, which is to give the tattoo a wrapping look, and Layer Masks, which is to clean up the edges that don’t belong. The rest are just simple modifications that would make your piece look more natural and realistic.
