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.

Here are 8 new tattoos for female Sims. I created them for my Sims-Daughter, so they are choosen, placed and sized to look good on Teen-Sims, but they will also do their Job for Adults and Elders.

Here they are:

Short Discription:

1 (Name of File: Butterfly)
A Butterfly-Half-Tribal-Tattoo for the right Arm.
Tattoo-Designer: Xtasys

2 (Name of File: Kreuz)
Tribal-Version of a german Medieval-Knight-Symbol for the neck.
Tattoo-Designer: xTRIGx

3 (Name of File: Backtribal)
Tribal for the lower Back
Tattoo-Designer: Mirakali

4 (Name of File: Angel)

Angel_Tribal for the lower Arm
Tattoo-Designer: Lukas Zek315

5 (Name of File: Eagle)
Eagle-Tribal for the upper Legs.
Tattoo-Designer: Mateusz Drozd

6 (Name of File: Bat)
A 2nd Tattoo for the Neck. A Bat-Tribal.
Tattoo-Designer: Von R. Glitschka

7 (Name of File: Rose)

smooth Rose-Tattoo for belly.
Tattoo-Designer: unknown

8 (Name of File: Scorpion)

Scorpion-Tribal for the left calf.
Tattoo-Designer: unknown

...a quick Look on the Mother, to let you know how it looks on Adults:

Download & Install:

Female tattoos 7in1 with Bat.rar
This is a merged Full-Body-Tattoo for Quick-Install. It contains 7 Pieces with the Bat-tattoo on the Neck, also with all others Tattoos, except of the Kreuz-Tattoo. It youses the left-Earring-Accessory-Slot.

If you want this full-body-tattoo for another accessory-slot, you can find it in the Combine-Set

Female tattoos 7in1 with Kreuz.rar

Same as before, but with the kreuz-Tattoo on the Neck, instead of the Bat-Tribal.

Also - if you want this full-body-tattoo for another accessory-slot, you can find it in the Combine-Set


(of course you can, and everything will work, but if you do this, there will be many stuff in your CAS, which u will never use)
take a few minutes to look, which files you need.

If you choose this Download, you can combine the Tattoos like you want. The rar-file contains 10 Folders (8 Tattoos + 2 Full-Body-Merged-Tattoos) and every Folder contains 6 different package-Files. You can choose for every Tattoo which Accessory-Slot it has to use in the CAS. You can choose between Left Earring, Right Earring, Earrings, Right Ring, left Ring and Bracelet-slot.

So you can combine the tattoos the way it fits best to the outfit of your Sims and u can combine it with tattoos from other creators the way you want.

If you want only one single-tattoo, you also have to download the combine-set, install the tattoo you want, and delete all others. Sorry for this, but i wasn't impressed of the idea to attach over 60 rar-files.

You want this for male?

I decided to make them not compatible for male, because most of them would look sick or gay, and i didn't want to put a bunch of useless things in your male-accessory. if u want one of these for male it will take you 2 minutes to make them compatible!

1) Download Delphy's CAS-TextureUnitool here:
2) install it, start it and load the package-file of the tattoo you want to edit.
3) Click the check-mark at male in "Part-Category".
4) Click the "Commit"-Button in "Part-Category"
5) save it as a new package-file (prefered with another name)
6) install your new package file
- done!

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.

i don't mean to be rude.
but refering to number 2.
the person you have credited is WRONG, they did not design that cross,
I actually designed that a few years ago (as a large back piece for a friend) and it was posted on MY deviantart account.
i removed it a while ago due to many people just taking the design without permission.
i still have the adobe illustrator file with all the line work and separately drawn layers if you don't believe me.

Will it work if I download the same file for all of the slot options for CAS?

sure. if you install (for example) all tattoos for the left earring, every tattoo will be shown. but if you do that, your sim can only wear one tattoo at same time, because your sim can only wear one left earring.

so (again for example) if you like the eagle and the butterfly you should install them for 2 different slots, and if you like 6 of these you should install them for 6 different slots.

if you install all files of the combine-set, it will not kill your game and all tattoos work fine, but there will be many useless files in your CAS.

These are pretty! They look like Runner tattoos from the game Mirror's Edge. :D

You are the apple of my eye.That is, if I ever wanted fruit embedded in my iris of course.

Thanks! Can you provide links to the image files you used? And how do you open a package file with CTU(CAS-TextureUnitool)? i'm stumped

These are nice, I wonder though; can I wear these as regular tats? As in when I go and get the tattoo done. I have nice stuff already on glasses(in all) and would like 2 use 'em with the tats.

While I respect your decision to not make these for male sims (it is your creation, after all, and you can make it for whatever sims you want to) I do not appreciate you claiming the tattoos would look "gay" on male sims. Most of these tattoos seem, to me, to be gender-neutral. There is nothing especially feminine about eagles, scorpions, bats or crosses. As a homosexual person, I found the way that you phrased your justification for making these female-only offensive.

As I said, I respect your decision to not make these for male sims, but please, in the future, choose your words more carefully.

Mods rock my sox.
