Everyone loved the first trailer from Naughty Dog‘s The Last of Us Part II and the one thing that caught everyone’s attention is Ellie’s tattoo.
Naughty Dog explains how it was created and added to the game.
Ellie’s tattoo was created by artist Natalie Hall, who was also the hand model for Ellie as she plays the guitar in the video above.
Hall went through an intense, brand-new hand scanning process for the game, according to creative director, Neil Druckmann.
