This spell turns mundane tattoo ink embedded in the skin into acid. If a creature has no tattoos or the tattoos of the target are enchanted, the spell will not work, nor does the spell function if the target succeeds on a Will save. If the save fails, the target’s tattoos turn against the wearer, dealing 1d4 points of acid damage per your caster level and lasting for a number of rounds equal to half of your caster level, rounded down. The spell ruins the tattoos of the target creature.
