Best way to create tattoos for Daz Studio

I was wondering if anyone has experience with applying tattoos to their Daz Studio characters? What's the best way?

I'm pretty new to Daz, but I know I can edit the character skin maps to do this. My problem is if my location for a tattoo crosses the boundary of two different maps I have no idea what to do. 

Anyone give me any tips? I would be very grateful.

I might be wrong but i think the LIE editor helps with that.

This is a pretty good video explaining how to do it....

Thanks for the replies guys. Didn't know much about the layered image editor. I see this is definitely a different way to do it, but I'm still stuck on being able to cross texture map boundaries. I could very well be using the image editor wrong but I cant seem to do it. LIke if want the tattoo to be on her back area but it goes onto her shoulder area to. That would be torso and arm texture maps. 

Also, now I'm stuck on how to line them up if they wrap around a part of the body. Like an arm band tattoo. Ugh... So much to learn! Anyone know?

But thank you for your replies!

I'm looking into doing something like this, too. I've tried LIE and don't think it works across seams. I'm thinking about giving 3D Coat a whirl. 

Has anyone used it, or have any better recommendations?

If you were happy to spend the money I think 3DCoat could make this process easier for you BUT DON'T SPEND THE MONEY till you trialed the software :)

Thanks for the replies! Yep, I have come to the conclusion that a 3D painting program is what I need. I downloaded the 3D Coat trial. It's killing me but I'm waiting to start until I can dedicate the full time to learn it so not to waste the trial period. LOL. 

Thank you very much!!!

LOL @Naughty - I just did the same, and am waiting to start my trial too. LOL.

Well, you don't need a 3D painting application, but it does help with workflow sometimes. I do all my texturing in GIMP.

You could give Blender a shot at it, it's free and open source.

´╗┐This is a WIP character that I am doing the tattoo is in Photoshop in two different layers arms and torso. As it is done it is valid for lie or texture. The bad thing about the LIE is that depending on the end-user pc it takes a long time to load.image
