The Tattoo family of Armor is comprised of tattoos, runes, and familiars. They are all referred to as "tattoos" for simplicity, and can only be equipped on a single Minion per character. When doing so, they will take up the Armor slots for body armor and Cloaks. In doing so, they will provide no AC (Armor Class), but instead will supply other unique abilities such as spawning another minion (familiar), amplifying the stats of the wearer, or conferring defensive bonuses to the entire team.
Tattoos are described as "Tattoo lvl ###", i.e. "An Ice Familiar lvl 20". This level (lvl) is based on the amount of Experience trained into the tattoo. Tattoos will gain experience as a certain percentage of the entire XP earned in a fight, as opposed to a percentage of the experience gained by the minion wearing the tattoo. Therefore, multiple minions do not affect the total XP earned by the tattoo. See this thread for more information:
A worn tattoo will gain levels as your minions gain XP, and this level gain does not dilute their XP rewards. Tattoos will gain levels at the same rate no matter how many minions are on your team.
A tattoo will only gain experience if the tattoo is under the Max Tattoo level, which is listed on the home page above your minion roster. A tattoo's effective level for a character is capped at the character's Max Tattoo level. Thus, a character wearing A Rune of Balrog Flame level 10,967,320 with a max tattoo level of 70 would have the same effect wearing A Rune of Balrog Flame level 70.
One tattoo behaves differently than other tattoos: The Rune of Enlightenment gives a percentage of the experience a normal tattoo would gain to its wearer instead of gaining levels.
This section needs to be rewritten. It should only include PR added for a maximized tattoo at a given MTL. The values below are meaningless, since the PR a tattoo adds increases with MPR.
Here is a list of estimations on how much your PR will be increased when equipping an xx NW tattoo/rune/familiar:
Here is a list of the NW of tattoos by level:
(Perhaps one of the maths cutters could plot the regression line once a few more values are recorded, to come up with a simple formula for net worth based on level?)
