Know any stories about camouflage tattoos?

A recent conversation reminded me of something I once read. It was in a Playboy magazine, likely mid-80s, and it was either a short story or an excerpt from a novel if Playboy even does that kind of thing. From what I remember it was written in the first person about a guy (a reporter?) who hears about this Vietnam vet that has learned some art of tattooing which acts as the perfect camouflage.

There was a confrontation or showdown or something like that in the woods where the narrator described the guy taking off his clothes and disappearing.
Of course I read it when I was a kid, so I don't have the clearest recollection. Maybe it wasn't a Vietnam vet, maybe it was second person narration, I don't know.
Regardless, ring any bells?
