I am working on this design for a tattoo, what I want to do is apply the flame background layer to the white area of the tribal flame design. I do remember doing it at one point in time, but haven''t been able to figure out how I did it. Its kind of the same idea if I remember correctly as the text vector mask that lets you use a background to make the colour of your text... but HOW do I do it with the shape?

Try selecting the inside of the shapes with the magic wand (maybe expand 1 pixel), then click on the background layer and choose to mask what's not selected. Then the inside of the shapes has to be transparent, if they are on a layer of their own you can change the layers style to multiply. Or, magic wand again the white area and hit delete.
