Create and Place a Tattoo Into Your Photos

Ready to create and place your own tattoo? Well now I'll teach you how you can do this in a very simple way.

Start opening a new 300 px x 300 px new document with transparent background.

With the "Elliptical Marquee Tool" draw a perfect circle on the stage (holding "Shift" while you drawing). Fill with black (Edit - Fill).

With the "Right arrow key" move the selection to the right until you have an half moon then hit "Del" on your keyboard.

Edit - Copy.
