Removal of tattoo is pretty much one of the most desired do-to in occasions like wedding and child birth. But removal of tattoo manually in a tattoo shop is a painful task, and I don’t think that it’s a best option to remove tattoos so that you look decent in your wedding photos. But in Photoshop, you can remove tattoo in seconds, and the best thing is that it’s totally painless. In this tutorial, I am going to show you how to remove tattoo in Photoshop. I am aware that tutorials like are present on the internet, but people are using tattoos that are too small such that they can be removed easily. Unlike those tutorials, I am going to choose an image where the tattoo’s size in pretty much large and covers a big portion of the body.

Before we go any further, I’d like to show you the before and after image.

So let’s move to the tutorial. I am going to explain everything step by step. This tutorial is divided in 4 parts that’ll be covered in four different pages. I understand that it’s little bit annoying to go to a different page to learn the next step, but the fact that I attach several high quality images in a tutorial, makes the website slow, and the result is that it will take much more time to load any tutorial. Several browsers sometimes crash also while loading multiple high quality images. This is why the safest and most reliable option is to segregate the tutorial into multiple pages.

Step 1: It’s Always Better to have a Backup

The first thing I’d like you to do is to create a copy of your background layer, or duplicate your layer. You can do this by either going to Layer>Duplicate Layer or by pressing Ctrl+J/Cmd+J.
