Tickets are earned for every nine games. Wins are counted as double, which means you can earn a ticket in five games if you go on a winning streak that is. 

It’ll take you four tickets to unlock a skin, although you can get bonus tickets and be able to unlock additional skins if you upgrade to the Premium pass.
