Except that I explicitly disallow this in my version: 

:With the exception of a Tattoo of Obedience, a magical tattoo will only 
:provide its benefits if clearly visible on exposed skin. (I.e. not covered 
:clothing, armor, make-up, etc.) A partially covered tattoo will function if 
:enough to be seen and recognized (GM's discretion as to how much exposure 
:this requires.) 

This was under "general notes on magic tattoos" at the bottom of my post; one 
of the designed drawbacks of my version is that they do have to be in plain 
sight and at least somewhat flashy.

It should read "If obeying the command would be immediately fatal, or if the 
command requires continued obedience after leaving the command-giver's 
then the bearer gets a second roll vs IQ." Thus if the Master orders a tattoo 
bearer: "Go to the Chamber of Chastisement and wait for me there." the tattoo 
bearer would get a second roll once he leaves the Master's presence.
