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.
I made a few things pre-Christmas and finally I got a minute to upload!
(Anyone else happy thats over with? LOL!)

So this is my Vintage Tattoo Light skin.

The male and female tattoos are different and won't show up until
the Young Adult/Adult stages. Also the tats get blurry and faded
on the elderly skins. Trying to keep it realistic...

I wish I could have done a separate Young Adult skin, with only
one little tattoo... and then all of them as a full Adult. You know,
kid goes off to college and gets thier first tattoo of something
cheesy like a rose and a few years later ends up with full sleeves
and back pieces. LOL!

Unfortunately the game doesn't work that way. Oh well.. enjoy anyway!

These are fabulous! I'm always happy to see tattooed skins that aren't just more black tribal stuff. And I love that you made them blurry and faded for the elders -- I never thought to do that with mine. GREAT idea! I'll remember that for the next one I do.

Again, really nice job.

Wow, your stuff is really great. Do you get all your hair meshes from The Sims Resource? I really love the one in your main pic but I don't want to subscribe if it's not there. Also do you know where else I can find rockabilly and swing items...they seem really hard to find.

If you mean the ponytail w/ bangs I got that from this site:
http://simsbeauty.net/

And there are some fun color versions on Insimenator:

The one in the pic a recolored myself... thats actually what my real hair looks like. :D

There isn't a lot of really good rockabilly/vintage stuff out there.
Thats what got me started making stuff (way back for Sims1)...
but I'll try to remember where I dug some of the bits I've found for
Sims2 and let you know...
