In this how-to video, you will learn how to remove tattoos using Photoshop. First, open the image in Photoshop. The patch tool is the easiest for removing these type of tattoos. If the tattoo is very ornate and complicated, it will take longer to remove. First, select the patch tool, which looks like a band-aid. Hold it down and select patch tool. Zoom in on the tattoo and draw a selection around it. Once it is selected, click the left mouse and hold it down. Drag the selection to an area similar to the selection. The tattoo will be removed.
