Here's a shot of an armored Ys'sa, with the tattoo cleared up for a better view. (I did this picture waaaaay back, before P2P even began! I just colored it, after I joined.)
(Edited! Again!) Okay, background on the Bloody Lotus; Back in her earliest years of training, Ys'sa had a run-in with a ranked officer, named Rhiala'Nhis. They developed a pretty strong bond, A'Nhis becoming both mentor and lover to the fledgling Ys'sa. But thins were spiraling downhill. A'Nhis had a lot of enemies, and set her up to be killed, along with the entire unit of trainies she had with her. Ys'sa found out, came rushing to her side, and got caught in the trap as well. However, with her unusual strength, Ys'sa managed to survive through blinding hatred of those who killed her lover. This was the start of her berserker rampages. She designed the Bloody Lotus in A'Nhis' memory, for all she did for her. The "Bloody Lotus" represents how A'Nhis was "a flower blooming in the bloody sea of war." Or, some such nonsense... Yeah... Well, I'll be doing a fanfic about it, since it's been bugging me so much.
