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 decided to have a go at another japanese set, for you people, there are so much more things I'd like to make, but I can only do one at a time...

So I proudly present you an all new japanese tattoo skin!
Hope you like it!

It's an overlay recolor of socks, so it can be found at the bottem in the accessories.
It's not possibly to recolor ofcourse, but you can make them brighter/darker to you personal preferance. Might be needed to make it look good on lighter/darker skintones... Obviously these will not look good on very dark skintones.
I tested it and it doesn't stay on in the showers, I don't think a hack/mod is possible for this.... but it does stick in all other outfits, including the some of thework outfits that I've tested ...

Works for Young Adult, Adult & Elder males

Backpiece artwork by the amazing Judd Ripley.

This is my 6th Tattooskin upload for the sims3, I also have
1. Japanese Bodysuit
2. Old/Newschool bodysuit
3. Straight Edge Tattoos
4. Simish Vice Lords - Gang Ink
5. Color Tattoo For Females


PLEASE, show your appreciation by clicking THANKS, leaving a Comment, or adding this upload to your favourites!

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.

Absolutely love these, thanl you! And far as them sticking on in the shower, seems like you have to get lucky. When I used KittyKlan's tats on my sim, they stuck just like tattoos should. But this happens once in a while in CAS. Hoping yours does the trick as well, I am an avid lover of intricate and unbroken sleeves and backs!

Wonderful! Any chance of you making them work for women?

I might be crazy, but I've used both these tattoos as well as XJonasX's "Straight Edge" tattoos on my male AND female Sims. For some reason, they show up in the female section for me, too, but I'm not complaining.

Very nice work. :3

I dont deal much with the exchange now. EA forums are ban happy, the stuff here is WAYYYY better than what EA provides. (I know, bought a lot of it at first) lol, and uploads with cc work poorly anyways. So no worries on that! Thank you for sharing. ^^

Hey Radeon,

I don't because I haven't created in over a year, to do it right, it takes a lot of time, and I don't have the time...
