AIDS doesn't necessarily have any particular visible signs. Frequently people in full blown AIDS will suffer from wasting syndrome which means they will lose weight dramatically. AIDS patients are also susceptible to a form of skin cancer called Karposi's sarcoma which produces dark patches on the skin. But a patient can be in full blown AIDS without either of those conditions. An AIDS patient will be very sick but not necessarily with any particular visible symptoms.

It is not possible to look at someone even in full blown AIDS and tell that they have AIDS. AIDS is a syndrome which means it is a combination of a number of different problems and as a result its symptoms usually look like those of other diseases and conditions as well. Even very classic looking patients (with both wasting syndrome and Karposi's sarcoma) are not necessarily AIDS patients - only a doctor can make that determination.
