* ''ForgottenRealms'' {{sourcebook}} "Inside Ravens Bluff" has an enchanted needle which allows to make "Living Tattoos". These are just animated pictures, though.
* ''{{Ravenloft}}'' has one nomadic tribe whose shamans can bind a non-evil spirit into living tattoo on anyone they like as a sort of {{familiar}} capable of walking around in ghostly form. In "Carnival" one of carnies binds in tattoos [[spoiler:Night Terrors - embodiment of phobias, so that instead of scaring people out of their pants little creeps are forced to grant their hosts resistance to the same sort of fear]].
* In ''TranshumanSpace'' this is possible with "nanorobotically created and controlled pseudo-chromatophores", which essentially turn a patch of skin into an LCD screen.
