If someone has put up a photo of you on Tumblr without your permission you can report the post.

1. Tap the cog at the top right of your screen, then tap "Global Settings"

2. Select "Report Abuse" and "My Privacy is Being Violated"

3. Select "Yes" when asked if it is about your privacy, then tap "Private Images of Me Have Been Posted."

4. Provide proof of identity and follow the instructions to report the photo. 

For most part, images of you will probably be posted by people you know and if they're good friends they will take down photos if you ask them. However, it is best to report images posted by people you don't know that you want to be removed.
