Tattoos have been becoming more and more evident in The Legend of Zelda series as character art and models have increased in detail. The first mention of a body marking was the Triforce crest appearing on Link's hand in Zelda II: The Adventure of Link and likewise throughout the series, although this wasn't meant to be interpreted as a tattoo.
This is the first ingame accessible tattoo in Ocarina of Time. He has 豆 (Bean) tattooed on his arm.
Treasure Chest Game Owner/Fisherman
The Bomb Shop Owner from Ocarina of Time and Majora's Mask has tattoos on his head and on his arms. The symbols on his arms are similar to the symbols on the Treasure Chest Game Owner/Fisherman's shoulders.
All Gorons proudly wear the Goron Emblem on their biceps. The design has a basic tribal appearance of presumably a pawprint, made of isoceles triangles and a central diamond shape. This tattoo also matches the shape of the Goron's Ruby. Gorons in Twilight Princess and Spirit Tracks have many more body markings that have not been confirmed to be either tattoos nor body paint. The war paint speculation has credence given the state of alert the Gorons are in during the events of Link's quest.
Mikau, the guitarist of The Indigo-Go's from Majora's Mask, has a large tattoo on his right arm. The tattoo can also be seen on Zora Link's replica created by the "Elegy of Emptiness". He also appears to have one on his head and neck as well.
In Twilight Princess, the female monkey has what appears to be a circular tattoo on her shoulder.
