General Idea for Tattoos (in General)

Mythology December 1 2009 4:13 PM EST

As tattoos are imo not really very 'tattoo - like' I propose a change.

Once you put a tattoo on a minion, its permanent, only way to 'remove' the tat would be to put another one on.

The whole point of tats was for them to be separate from the char...
This would make chars a lot more valuable, and tats a lot more rare.

Unlikely, but interesting.

Ok, you get a base 20 tattoo, switch tattoos then do what you want with the old one.

A base 20 IF is worth less than 50k.

And what if you decide you do not want to fight with a tattoo for now. Esp on a single minion character?

I have always like the idea of tattoos being character specific like the CB T-shirt. With all characters starting with a base one and 1 free TA. But that idea is moot at this stage of the game.

I would love to see characters become more valuable and tattoos become permanent - but I would love to see this IN CONJUNCTION with a rolling bonus. :D

Then your strategy nerf simply affects the size of your bonus and the rate at which you can catch up, instead of destroying your character's growth potential and forcing you to start a new NCB.

Not sure how to go about this but I'll give it a whirl. What if tats under this premise could still be reinked and are Semi Attached to your Char? Say Via MPR? This way you still get all of the benefits of the Tat but if you take it away you suffer for it. Call it a separation
