Is it possible to make a spell tattoo from the Craft Spell Tattoo feat that is permanently reusable? That is, a tattoo that recharges and can be cast (e.g.) 1/day?


Custom Magic Item Creation

Following Magic Item Creation Rules, this would be pretty simple and straight forward.

How I Would Do It (Opinion)

Let's break it down.

Base Cost: From the first entry under Spell Effect (Command word), we can see that the base cost should be Spell level x Caster level x 1,800 gp.

Modifications: For a tattoo like the one you mentioned, it would be a slot-less item, which adds the "No Space Limitation" modification, which doubles the price. And, as you suggested, using X times per day, you divide by (5/X), where the higher value for X results in a higher price. This second modification is taken from the "Charges Per Day" row under Special.
