How do you create a tattoo that has endless possibilities? Just do what they do in the movies. Use a green screen. I mean, it’s going to look weird on you, but at least you can add in all kinds of special effects shots digitally.

I’m not really familiar with all of the footage shown, so I’m not sure if they’re all from TV shows.
