How to Remove a Tattoo From a Photo Using Photoshop


Adobe Photoshop is a remarkable tool for designers and photo experts alike. This software allows for the creation and manipulation of photographic content like no other application in the design world. Adding or removing tattoos with this program is a very simple project.

  • Open the Adobe Photoshop application on the computer. This application is typically located under the "Programs" button on the computer.

  • Import or open a photo in Photoshop. Drag and drop photos from open albums or files. Use a scanner to import a picture directly into Photoshop.

  • Locate the area on the photo where the tattoo is. Use the magnifier tool to get very close to the specific tattoo.

  • Choose the Clone tool from Photoshop's toolbar, typically located to the left of the photo palette.

  • Pick an area in the immediate area of the tattoo on the body and clone that specific piece of skin that has no tattoo. Bring the clone tool back over the tattoo and click into place. This will place a very similar area of non-tattoo skin onto the tattoo, thus removing it.

  • Use the Heal brush in areas where the tattoo is very small or slightly hidden. Choose an area near the tattoo with similar looking skin and use the Heal brush over the tattoo area.

Tips & Warnings

  • Photoshop can also place tattoos on the body for a neat effect or to terrify mom and dad through email.
  • Use Photoshop to remove or reduce blemishes or any other bodily distraction for aesthetically pleasing pictures.
