_______________________________________________

(Qov > Lieven, 10/08/2017):  For tattoo, I got some new stuff from Maltz: {tutlh} "have a tattoo, be tattooed" (so "tutlhmoH} is to tattoo).  The noun tattoo is {DIr tutlh}.  If you have one pattern/design on your arm, say, that's an example of a {DIr tutlh}.  If you have lots of independent patterns/designs, interwoven or separated, the whole lot of them taken together is/are {DIr tutlh}.
