Design brief

Organization name

Bowling Green State University - Psychology Department

Description of business

We are an accredited public university that has a strong research focus. The BGSU psychology department is home to the Industrial-Oranizational Psychology graduate program, one of the top 5 programs in the U.S. I-O Psychology is the application of psychological principles to the world of work.

Organization industry



We require pictures of 5 men to be modified so that have they appear to have varying amounts of tattoos. We have provided hi-res (6MP jpg) pictures of applicants for you to work from, and we would like the finished products to be the same file type.

We will need three versions of the images of each of the 5 men (15 images total): one with no tattoos, another with one small to medium-sized tattoo (2" to 6" in size on the skin) visible on their forearm, and one with tattoos covering both arms and part of a tattoo just poking out from the collar. The content of the tattoos must differ across the images. Do not use tattoos that are offensive or gang-related.

All images must look 100% authentic, meaning that the tattoos have to look very real. The pictures should be cropped/altered as you see necessary to focus the image on the head, arms, and torso of the subject. All pictures should be formatted the same way.

These images will be shown via computer screen, just in case that makes a difference in your approach to this project.

Further requirements

The best submissions will:
-portray a wide range of tattoo content, color, and style.
-have corrected any color/shadow/red eye imperfections in all 15 images, and maximize the presence of the tattoos to ensure the viewer notices them.
-make the tattoos look as real as the real thing!

UPDATE: Some ideas for designing the tattoos: polished elaborate fantasy/patriotic/etc, religious imagery, tribal designs, cartoony and light-hearted images (i.e. Disney characters), sports logos, text, or old school sailor jerry-style images. People tend to get a lot of the same style of tattoo so try to consider that. Most tend to stick with either color or greyscale, but both need to be repesented. These images need to be diverse to represent the tattooed world as best as possible with 5 different people. Thanks!
