What's the name of the book where the main character is a swordsman who has sword tattoos on his eyelids?

I have a vague recollection about a book where all the characters had tattoos (on their eyelids) indicating their profession. The main character had sword tattoos (possibly blue) and was an expert swordsman. At some point he's traveling on a ship and spars/fights with the sailors.
I read this book in the 90's so it's at least that old.
