Navel Piercing (now for males and females)

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.
UPDATE: I've added another file so you can use the piercing on males. It's basically the same as the female, possibly a little larger. Recolour it to a light grey for best results but it will work with other colours.

This is my first belly button piercing. I made it in the sock slot because I figure it's the least used slot in the game and I didn't want to take up another jewellery slot.



The only drawback is that when you recolour the piercing it zooms in on the feet, so you will have to zoom out a bit to recolour then select the bikini to zoom back in and check it out.

I've included a cas thumbnail, which you can see below, along with some colour examples and screenies.
When you use the ring on large sims it stretches slightly.

Category - Accessory (takes up the socks slot)
Gender - Female
Ages - Teen through Elder.

aikea guinea for the multifoiled replacement eyes
mtsims-cakestore.com did the lipstick

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.

Thanks guys!
Ok regarding the sim, she's actually my work in progress Nina Dobrev / Elena Gilbert (the chick from the vampire diaries). However, if you really like her as she is I can throw the current simfile up on my site for you before I keep working on her. Just let me know, otherwise once I've finished her she will be available in a Vamp Diaries set with the two fellas who play alongside her.

christmas fear, I plan on trying out more styles. I had a few I was working on but because they are 'painted on' I was having a lot of trouble finding designs that would shrink without losing too much detail and still look 3d. I will definitely try more though.

Flipi234, nope not dutch

Oh and if anyone finds any issues with certain skins could you please let me know? Thanks.

Lovely!! Thank you so much for making this! Shall check it out in the game immediately

And I agree with Flipi234, any chances of a male version? It's so gorgeous.

I can make a male version when I get a chance I have family visiting at the moment so I won't be able to do any simming for about a week! Talk about withdrawals

Thanks everyone.

I commented on My Sims3 Blog but I will say it here too - I think it is great that we have a navel piercing that isn't painted on a skin so we can add it to any Sim we want. I recolor the piercing to a dark blue so that it shows up on my fair skinned Sim and it looks great, especially when she is in her bikini!

Someone on ms3b commented that it doesn't work properly on all skins, I wish they'd been more specific.
