Minecraft Skins for Bedrock Versions

This article applies to Bedrock versions of Minecraft only. For information on Minecraft: Java Edition see Minecraft Skins for Java Edition article.

Note: You can only change your skin if you have migrated your premium account. So to change your skin, you must migrate your account to Mojang Studios. 

 

 

     

 

Add an Outer or Second Skin Layer

Starting with Minecraft version 1.8, skins can have a second layer on each body part. For information on creating a custom skin, visit the Minecraft Wiki.

Only the inner part of a dual-layer skin will be visible if you use it while playing a Minecraft edition older than version 1.8.

To find your version number or instructions on how to update your version, see How To Update Minecraft.

 

Learn about Standard and Slim Skin Models

If you haven’t uploaded a custom skin, you'll have either the classic "Steve" skin or the newer "Alex" skin, which features slimmer arms. Your default skin is randomly based on your account ID and cannot be changed, although you can apply custom skins. This skin is also used when you don't have a connection to the skin servers.

You can create your own skin based on either model using the reference templates below:

Slim-armed skins are only fully supported in version 1.8 and higher; if you have a slim-armed skin selected in a version prior, you will see black pixels on the arms.

To find your version number or instructions on how to update your version, see How To Update Minecraft.

Why are there black lines on my skin's arms?

You'll see black lines on your skin’s arms in versions 1.8 and later if your profile has a classic model selected, but you've uploaded a slim-armed skin. To fix this, visit Minecraft.net/profile and upload the correct skin type for the model you've selected.
You'll also see this issue if you've uploaded a slim-armed skin prior to them being implemented in the game (versions 1.7.9 or earlier). To fix this, visit Minecraft.net/profile and upload a classic skin.

To find your version number or instructions on how to update your version, see How To Update Minecraft.
