This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
Hi there! This is one of my first attempts to new meshes (very, very old attempt) and as now I know how to make accessories, this piercing can see the sunlight! Or not, if your sims decide to not to open their mouths, it won't see any kind of light :P
This piercing is for both genders and for teen-to-elder, you can find them under earrings sections. Female and male piercings work separately, because male's tongue is thicker/longer, and it needed a different mesh

· All the recolors shown in this upload are included!
· This piercing has 3 channels: top ball, bottom ball, and the bar that is crossing the tongue.


PS: I hope you have fun with my sims' faces!

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! Real piercings! Now I just want an eyebrow hoop, a diamond nose stud and a belly piercing that isn't just painted on.

This is great! I am going to try it very soon. The only thing I think could be, well, problematic with this is that I might not be able to actually see or notice it that much during gameplay. However, I still think I'll like it quite a bit and there's not any way to avoid that. Thanks!

Wonderful! I have a tongue piercing myself and I always wanted a realistic-looking one for my sims. This looks great and I can't wait to try it out.

(The pics are awesome, btw.)

Darn kids, always poking holes in everything on 'em that doesn't already have one! Psh! Srsly though, these do look very nice - love that you've put such thought into the way the recolourable channels are done. Even if your sims should get off my lawn.
