There are various resources for this. You could search in the Second Life wiki - Creation portal .


You can apply images and textures of your own design to your avatar's skin. However, most avatars use this skin texture layer for wearing custom skins, and use the various clothing layers to wear tattoos.

Tattoos, like other forms of texture transparency in the Second Life® virtual world, require a special part of an image known as an "alpha channel". The alpha channel serves as a "hidden color" that shows where to draw the texture and where to remain transparent. One such use for alpha channels would be to "paint" a window into a wall without physically building the window.


Another good resource to learn the steps involved in making tattoos is here.
