Various skins exist in ARK: Survival Evolved that aesthetically alter clothing (or other equipable items).


To Equip a skin on console select the skin, then select the item you wish to skin.

To remove a skin from an item put this item in your inventory and then hold Ctrl while dragging the skin with the left-clicked mouse from the item.

On Xbox press X and on PS4 press Square.

Many skins can be obtained by unlocking certain Achievements, after which survivors will have them in their inventory every time they respawn. Other skins can be unlocked by killing certain creatures. For more information, see the individual skin pages below.
