5 Best Skyrim Tattoo & War Paint Mods

In The Elder Scrolls V, you can change a lot about your main character.

But if you’ve played RPGs for a while, you know that these choices don’t work for long. We want more all the time!

And let’s say you like tattoos but are too afraid of needles to get one. Well, how about giving the virtual people in Skyrim some tattoos?

You can get tattoos all over your body with these mods. The body of your character, I guess.

5. KJ Tattoos

 Skyrim Tattoo

Want to look like the coolest savior anyone has ever seen?

Then you’ve definitely come to the right place.

KJ Tattoos is a huge mod pack with more than 40 customizable tattoos that can be put on both male and female characters. You don’t even have to go to a tattoo shop to get them!

NPCs, on the other hand, are not so lucky… so they won’t get any new ones.

There are a lot of great things about being the Dragonborn.

4. The Coenaculi

Tattoos are cool, no question about it.

But aren’t tattoos with more than one color even cooler?

The Coenaculi is a useful RaceMenu plugin that lets you choose and put tattoos on different parts of your body with just one click.

Even better, you can change a lot of things here, and you can even color any tattoo to your liking.

And if that wasn’t enough, the mod only downloads the data needed for the tattoos you choose! So my old 500 GB HDD is overjoyed.

3. Painterly

Tattoos look great and all, but they don’t bring any real advantage in battle.

I mean, it’s not like skeletons can get spooked by them.

But you know what might spook out some enemies?

War paints.

The vanilla war paints will never look as great as they do with the Painterly mod, an amazing retexture that improves on them in every possible way, basically increasing their resolution to 2K.

You know how it is: the higher the resolution, the better the effect!

2. Weathered Nordic Bodypaints

Nothing screams “seasoned warrior” like some faded warpaint.

Only because a true warrior doesn’t have the time to waste to take care of them!

If you’re not all that seasoned, but still want to look the part, you can download the Weathered Nordic Bodypaints pack.

Then show all of Skyrim that you’ve seen more than your fair share of battles.

And it really doesn’t matter whether it’s true: no one’s going to ask how many times you were inches away from a horrible death, trust me.

1. Community Overlays

Getting tattoos all over your virtual body sounds fun, right?

But it doesn’t automatically make you look cool. Randomness is rarely cool.

But if you don’t have the patience to mix and match different tattoos, or go over tons of customization options, you can just download the Community Overlays mod.

This grants you 30 themed overlays that will always help you look your best.

And I know what you’re thinking: these aren’t your own creations, true.

But when you can take 15 seconds to look like the coolest Dragonborn the world has ever seen, does it really matter whose design it is?
