Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I've never really been a big fan of colored tattoos, and I wanted some cool and realistic tattoos for my simmies. Many have been asking after these, so I thought to share them now.




Yo got your buddha, geisha, dragons and samurai! It's oriental baby! There are 11 tattoos in total, and you can see them all in attached screenshots in the bottom of the thread. The styles are very versatile, so they work great for both full back tattoos and arm tattoos, and even as full body tattoos!



These aren't recolorable, but you can of course change the opacity.
These can be found in the 'tattoos' category, these are not 'accessory' tattoos.
You will need to have your game patched for these to work (any patch after Ambitions' release).

All the tattoos are in a single package file! This makes your game work faster, compared to if you'd have even only half of them all separately!








Additional Credits:
Hairs on models in order of appearance by Peggy (free) conversion by Anubis360, Sim Artist Union, M&T, Rose and Cazy.
Brushes used for tattoos by MarmiteMamie of Deviantart.
Tattoos made with CmarNYC's tattooinator.
Full body tattoos enabled with CmarNYC's tattoo locations mod.

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.

Yay...I just finished an Asian sim and these will be perfect. What skin do you use, and the first hair, the ponytail, I can't locate it on Anubis site. Would it possible to link it or let me know exactly where I can find it? I would be most appreciative. Thanks...again...awesome tats!! Do you use them through the tattoo maker or just as an accessory?

The skin on all of the models are by Lemonleaf, you'll find 'em fast via google. The Peggy hair was converted from TS2 to TS3 by Anubis, but I converted it for males, so you can't find it from his site. Although, I'm soon uploading a japanese dude with that hair for dudes, so you can download it from that thread when I put it up.
These are ambitions tattoos, which means that they aren't accessories, and can be found under the tattoos category.

That's a japanese sword called katana. The katana is by creator called Man, but he/she took all the files down a long time ago for some reason. I think Rose has a katana type sword too, but only longer. Check out her site if you'll find it.
There are hair credits in 'additional credits', and more specifics about that first hair can be seen in my previous comment.

I'm having trouble getting the tattoo to go across the side and over the back. What am I doing wrong?
