Today I added the Tattoo Generator to the site. A sample can be seen below. It’s also been added to the main Backgrounds & Details generator but assumes that the character has a tattoo. If they don’t or you don’t want the character to have one, then you can ignore this section. As always, clicking on the various headers will take you to the appropriate generator page.
