This is a Maxis Recolour which means that it is a recolour of an item that already exists in your game. Please check the Expansion pack requirements to see which game pack it recolours.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I couldn't think of a theme, so I mashed names together.

Here's a set of tattoos for your sims. The set includes one dragon sleeve, one virgin of guadalupe, and one puddy tat. It was a lot of fun making this--with exception to trying to get the seams for the dragon sleeve to line up. That was a PITA.

Tats only appear on 1 arm for now... might get around to some double-armed sleeves later.

Dragon Sleeve
3 Color/Pattern areas
This uses artwork by dirtyallover at deviant art (colored adequately by me). If you like the design, then go tell the artist he's awesome.

Virgin of Guadalupe
3 Color/Pattern areas
This uses artwork by eexell at deviant art. If you like the design, then go give him some love as well.

Puddy Tat
2 Color/Pattern areas
This is the first tattoo I made, just dicking around with everything. I wasn't planning on including this one, but it turned out okay, and I figured some of you might enjoy it.

Both sexes. Teen through Elder. Located under accessories. They are enabled for all clothing categories, so hopefully they won't disappear when your sim gets nakey. Make sure to download BOTH the male & fem files for the dragon sleeve if you want both. Or just get the zip with all of them included.


All previous tattoos have been updated so that they can be mixed & matched together. With Delphy’s last CTU update, I realized it would now be much easier to make mix & match tattoos by assigning each tattoo an accessory type based on the tattoo’s location.

I’ll be using the following conventions for all placements so that I don’t drive myself crazy with inconsistencies.

left arm – left earring
right arm – right earring
backpiece - earrings
chestpiece - bracelet
legs - left ring
full body tattoo - right earring

I was not quite anally retentive enough to name all the updated files the same as the old ones and to copy & paste exactly the same initial colors for the updated tattoos. Make sure you go through your downloads and delete the old files if you want to keep your CAS options tidy. Your download folder should still be small enough that this is manageable, right?

All tattoos have thumbnails now as well. In some cases, there are small color discrepancies between the thumbnail pic and the initial colors. Also, if you save your own color settings on any of these the game generates the thumbnail wherever it thinks the accessory should be. So that kind of sucks.

Additional Credits:
A big thanks goes out to Delphy for the CAS unitool and to Hanlon Razor for the super-useful tutorial, which is located here: http://www.moreawesomethanyou.com/s...ic,15481.0.html

Don't forget to Thank the creator after downloading! Use the Thanks button located above the screenshots above.
Quick Guide:

1. Click the file listed on the Files tab to download the file to your computer.
2. Extract the zip, rar, or 7z file. Now you will have either a .package or a .sims3pack file.

For Package files:

1. Cut and paste the file into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Mods\Packages folder. If you do not already have this folder, you should read the full guide to Package files first: Sims 3:Installing Package Fileswiki, so you can make sure your game is fully patched and you have the correct Resource.cfg file.
2. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

For Sims3Pack files:

1. Cut and paste it into your Documents\Electronic Arts\The Sims 3\Downloads folder. If you do not have this folder yet, it is recommended that you open the game and then close it again so that this folder will be automatically created. Then you can place the .sims3pack into your Downloads folder.
2. Load the game's Launcher, and click on the Downloads tab. Find the item in the list and tick the box beside it. Then press the Install button below the list.
3. Wait for the installer to load, and it will install the content to the game. You will get a message letting you know when it's done.
4. Run the game, and find your content where the creator said it would be (build mode, buy mode, Create-a-Sim, etc.).

Extracting from RAR, ZIP, or 7z: You will need a special program for this. For Windows, we recommend 7-Zip and for Mac OSX, we recommend Keka. Both are free and safe to use.

Those tats are awesome, can't wait to try them out. I think the only way to keep them when they are in the shower is to mod the actual body itself, keep up the good work. Would love to see more tats in different areas and different designs later.

Love the tattoos set, thank you so much

And ditto to what the others were saying (on how you made the tattoos) Is it hard to do? I'm after Michael Schofields Tattoo from Prison Break.

You need to create this folder yourself.
"Mods" and then "Packages" in it.
