Pirates don't always wear their hearts on their sleeves, but they do wear their personality on their skin! Tattoos are a pirates way of expressing feats, loyalties, and loves.

Tattoo artists can be found all over the Caribbean, working out of Tattoo Parlors on Port Royal, Tortuga, Cuba, and Padres Del Fuego. For the right amount of gold, they'll turn any buccaneer into a canvas for their art.

Getting Tattoos

Parlors are recognized by the Tattoo Sign above the door. Press SHIFT to enter. Once inside, approach the artist and press SHIFT again.

An interaction menu will pop up. Available tattoos will be listed, categorized by the body part they will be placed on (Face, Chest, Left Arm, Right Arm).

Note - Currently no tattoos can be placed on legs or back.

You can preview how the image will look, by clicking on the picture. The tattoo will appear on your pirate. To buy, just click Buy to add it to your shopping list on the right. Click OK when finished.

Tattoo Inventory

Jewelry and Tattoos.png

Tattoos are kept in a joint inventory with Jewelry. A pirate can have up to 28 tattoos or pieces of jewelry, in addition to the one's being worn (Face, Left Arm, Right Arm and Chest) To obtain any more, you can throw them away or sell them. (Yes, you can sell tattoos!)

To change or sell tattoos, press I (Inventory) and go to the Tattoo tab. Then, simply drag the image to the Arm, Face or Chest square. The new tattoo will automatically appear on your pirate.
