I see it as too soon to make assumptions like that. Once we know more of the background info, an answer might make itself more apparent. In the first game I think you could make the tattoos so faint they'd be nearly invisible. That might not fit with lore but it should be a CC option. Just wondering this. I am glad all elven inquisitors will be Dalish but I know I will want an elf at some point without face tattoos.
Fextralife View topic - So is there any lore to support a Dalish with no face tattoo?
I recently got an ask about this, and decided to give a more in depth walk through of how I have done it, at least! This process goes for adding any facial tattoos to people, really. This is a little rough just for the sake of a tutorial, but should give you the idea. The first transformation to make is the orientation of the tattoo to match the orientation of the face. In the image above, she is slightly to the left and slightly upwards. Think about it as if you were about to draw a face at that angle:.

When I first started exploring cosplay, I noticed that although the entire effect of a costume would be amazing, different artists had particular aspects that they seemed to specialise in, almost like a trademark that set their body of work apart and garnered the most attention.

When the children of our people came of age, they earn the privilege of wearing the vallaslin, the blood writing. It sets us apart from the shemlen, and from the elves who have thrown their lot in with them. It reminds us that we will never again surrender our traditions and beliefs. Vallaslin , sometimes referred to as blood writing , is what the Dalish call the intricate facial tattoos worn by all adult clan members. Many young Dalish receive their vallaslin when they are around eighteen years of age  or younger.
