Photo Retouching Techniques

Tattoo removing in Photoshop is a great way to practice simple and advanced retouching techniques. This is the first of my tattoo removal projects. I started small and then became more ambitious by working on photos that had a great deal of contrast and skin tone variations. This project was easy and only took a minute to complete because the tattoo is small on the large canvas of this picture.

I was fortunate to have picked this photo as my first attempt at tattoo removal because the final quality turned out better than I expected and it inspired me to continue onto more challenging projects. This was a simple one compared to some later pieces, but sometimes it’s helpful to start small to motivate oneself to attempt greater tasks.
