At one point, they paint elaborate Mehndi henna tattoos over each other's bodies, and use the tattoos to channel their souls back into their own time.

** In TabletopGame/{{Warhammer 40000}}, some Orks will daub themselves in warpaint, ''believing'' certain colors will bestow certain attributes. For example, they believe [[RedOnesGoFaster red makes things go faster]], blue is lucky, and purple is stealthy ("You ever see a purple Ork before?"). While not always accurate, Orks are infamous for [[ClapYourHandsIfYouBelieve making things true if they believe them]], and vehicles with a lick of red paint do indeed go faster.


Added DiffLines:

* In TabletopGame/Shadowrun, while practically any object can become a magic focus if given enough time and preparation, practitioners of some traditions prefer to use tattoos. The reasoning for tattoos can be for religious significance, effectiveness, or that it's hard to disarm somebody of a focus inked onto the body; but most commonly because [[RuleOfCool they look pretty badass]].

** Minor X-Men character Gentle inverts this with his adamantium tattoos. It serves to limit his power of increasing his muscle mass and strength a'la Hulk, because if the power goes out of control it'll potentially harm his body. Every time he activates his power, his peak strength increases from the last, with the potential of eventually breaking his tattoos - and not many things in the world could even ''dent'' adamantium in the first place.

* This is a gameplay mechanic in ''VideoGame/LetItDie''. You can buy temporary tattoos for your characters in-game that confer buffs, and the Mushroom Magistrate is able to create these, and she'll sell them to you or exchange them for Skillshrooms.

* A [[MagicKnight Nexus Champion]] from ''[[NexusWar Nexus Clash]]'' is covered with tattoos that rewrite their relationship with the laws of physics and grant them phenomenal powers. The only price is that some of these powers give the Champion a duty to maintain the BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil.

* The Rood Inverse tattoo of ''VideoGame/VagrantStory'' is quite literally a ''Power'' Tattoo, as it unlocks the power of Lea Monde and grants its user complete control over the city and its spirits. It makes [[AntiVillain Sydney]] effectively immortal. [[spoiler: When Guildenstern acquires it, he uses it to much more destructive purposes.]] Needless to say, the thing is practically SealedEvilInACan. Which is why they need [[{{Badass}} Ashley]]...
