You are trained in the professional role of tanner. This skill is a Profession skill.

A tanner is someone who is skilled at turning animal skins into rawhide, and rawhide into leather. Making rawhide involves removing flesh, fat and hair from a skin by soaking in alkali solutions ("liming" or "bucking"), then scraping and drying. Turning rawhide into leather most often uses tannin, an acidic chemical compound found in oak bark and other places. A tanner may also colour skins during tanning.
