How To: Easily remove a tattoo using Photoshop

Easily remove a tattoo using Photoshop

This video shows you how to remove a tattoo from a photograph using Photoshop. First, select the tattoo using the pen tool, to get a very accurate line around the tattoo. Make sure the "Paths" button is punched in. Drag the mouse and click several times to make a path around the tattoo. Right click on the path and choose "make selection". Feather the selection with a feather radius of about 8 pixels. Use the clone stamp tool and a large size brush. Hover outside the selection and click to sample it. Then click over the selection several times until the tattoo is completely removed. If there are any places that are blurred or not quite right, you can touch up those places individually. Using this method, you can remove tattoos from photos.
