  1. 1

    Install the photo editing software onto the computer. Make sure all parts of the software that you need to edit photos are installed. Use the custom installation process of the software if you are a more experienced user, so as not to install things you don't need.

  2. 2

    Upload the picture from your digital camera to your computer. Install the USB cable onto the back of your camera and plug it into the computer. Transfer the picture by clicking the "Copy" option on the computer once the picture is seen on the screen.

  3. 3

    Open the picture into the photo editing software. Open a picture of the tattoo as well. Make sure the tattoo has been resized so as to fit into the original picture.

  4. 4

    Place the tattoo in the picture wherever you desire. Depending on the software you are using, you can place it right on top of the person's body and make it look like the tattoo was there naturally. You can also crop the tattoo onto the person's body and insert it that way. If you have higher quality software, you can cut and paste the tattoo.
