Tattoos

From AchaeaWiki
Jump to navigation Jump to search

Tattoos are mystical symbols and images developed by the ancient Tsol'aa. Through the skill of the same name, adventurers can apply dry ink on themselves or other recipients, creating practical artwork that bonds to skin, fur, scales, and carapace with equal ease. Then, depending on the skill rank of the inker and the tattoo that has been chosen by the recipient, once successfully inked, the tattoo will provide a variety of defences or abilities.

Tattoos may also be purchased from Vinci, the famed denizen tattoo artist, and permanent tattoo artefacts are also available to those willing to pay the requisite 400 credits.
