* Taurau Tangaroa in ''Literature/Birthright2017'' has extensive tattoos covering his chest, torso, shoulders and arms. They're of the cultural/religious variety, depicting various symbols and faces. He explicitly keeps his torso tattoos uncovered, as it's mentioned that they're sacred and should never be hidden in any way.

* Chakotay from ''Series/StarTrekVoyager'' had a large Native American facial tattoo over one side of his face. They established that he got that tattoo in memory of his father, and he was trying to continue their traditions after previously rejecting them, thus embodying the "conflicted" characteristic. Interestingly, in "Living Witness" among the many things mistaken for the "historic re-enactment" they made his tattoo even larger, covering both sides of his face. Appropriately his personality changed to something of a sadist (as with most of the crew).
