                         virtual objects in real world images, allowing users to be 
                         immersed in synthetic environments. Tattoos are an ancient 
                         cultural practice, performed for centuries, with interven- tion in 
                         epithelial layers of the human body, and technological devices can 
                         further expand this practice. Here we describe and evaluate an 
                         Augmented Reality system for visualization of virtual tattoos on 
                         the skin, accompanying the surface of the human body. From a 
                         captured image, the system detects markers on the skin, and 
                         outputs an image without the markers with an AR tattoo inscribed 
                         to the skin. Markers detection provides high accuracy rates that 
                         allow adequate mesh and, along with skin segmentation and markers 
                         removal, the system generates suitable \final images. Our 
                         system reveals robustness concerning the several possible 
                         operation conditions, dealing with different lighting conditions, 
                         background content, skin tones, drawing quality of the markers in 
                         the skin, and possible occlusions of skin and markers.",
