This is a featured upload! It showcases the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
**Updated Dec 10th, 2008**

I believe I have fixed the issue with the tattoos disappearing when the sims leave the lot & come back. I have tested this in my game & it works, but, feedback from others would be appreciated. You will need to delete my existing pachages & replace them with these new ones.

You must delete all 3 of the previous packages, then unzip the new ones into your Downloads folder or sub-folder.

Aloha!

This object generates real body tattoo overlays! No more separate skins for your tattoos Works on all skins except Plantsims & Werewolves.

Useable by teens & older. The object can be found in the Miscellaneous\Miscellaneous category. Click on the crate & choose "Add Morague's Tattoo" to place the tattoo on the sim. If placed as a teen the sim will age transition with it - you know - just like a real tattoo. Changing clothes does not affect the tattoo - it is always there - even in the shower.

There is a small amount of lag involved when you first choose to add the tattoo because the game needs to locate all of the files, then apply the tattoo. This works on both males & females although I only took female pictures.

You can find the tutorial here

Many people have been asking about anatomy parts. They are located at the Adult site SexySiims2. Please - you must be adult & not easily offended!

Is anybody actually adminning SexySims2.com anymore? I want to download the anatomically correct overlays from there, but I haven't been able to log in since I moved to another state and my IP changed so I can't get my password. Emailed the admins twice already and no response whatsoever, and it's been weeks :/ Would be nice if there was a mirror download somewhere...

Tramp stamps (lower back, above-the-behind tattoo)? Well... now I can see which one of my female Sims are skanks.

I really like the other tattoos, though. Good stuff.

Thanks Morague for this incredible mod!

Would anyone happen to have the expertise to explain the mesh linking in overlays?.. I've tried linking the "skins" packages to diff. body meshes, but to no avail. From the fact that it works for BBs, I'm assuming that it somehow follows the sim's skintone to whatever mesh it's linked to, -regardless- of the mesh referenced by the "skins" package's 3IDR.

What I desperately hope for is to use an overlay to have the naked sim take on a different bodyshape (but still have the genetic skintone linked to a regular Maxis shape). Does that sound technically absurd?

I have had some issues with this technology; with this download specificaly, if I remember correctly.

Anyway, as I reported on another download that uses this technology [which I found before finding *this* thread], whilst looking for a specific tatoo for one of my Vampyre PlantSims, I applied and removed a selection of tattoos to her, and her head went wonky, losing the PlantSim skin on just the head, leaving only the Vampyre overlay [and presumably the EAxis skin I created her with] and a very UGLY-looking Sim [I`m no good at making good-looking Sims, but with just the Vampyre overlay, her face was horrible!].

Later, after I posted that, I had occasion to play her household again, and for some reason the PlantSim skin returned to her head, but the Vampyre overlay vanished, again only from her head.

I`m puzzled. You have any ideas or suggestions?

Overlay boxes don't work very well with plantsims and werewolves in general, or so I've read.

Tattoo overlay is based on suntan overlay, so servo, werewolf, plantsim and bigfoot shouldn't get it .

Oops. ::blush:: Tatoo works fine on her, otherwise. Would removing the tattoo help, or make things worse? Also, what happens if a Sim already wearing a tattoo becomes a PlantSim or Werewolf?

this is "freakin delicious". i love this mod. i have pandora sims skin and it goes great with it. it didn't nothing. and i used it with a teen, and it grew up with it. Thanks a bunch, it really IS "freakin delicious".

"Tattoo overlay is based on suntan overlay, so servo, werewolf, plantsim and bigfoot shouldn't get it ."
Oh, this explains why one shouldn`t use the Batbox`s Fix Stuck Suntans on lots with Servos running around on them. Does anyone know how to repair "fixed" Servos?

Also, does anyone know if it is safe for someone wearing a tattoo to transition to PlantSim?

This looks awesome,but why is Seasons needed? Will it work with only Nightlife?

Can't work w/o Seasons b/c uses the sunburn functionality built into the game - in Seasons, sims can get a sunburn or frostbite layer on top of the skintone. Crudely speaking, these tattoos are recoloured sunburn. No sunburn, no tattoos... =(

Just wondering if there is any chance of an update to the tutorial that explains what you need to do in order to get tattoos to stick properly? (Last tutorial update was July 2007, not December 2008 like the "stickable" update.)

If not, any chance of an update of the anatomy bits so they stick?

In fact, the tutorial is good.

Aw man, I was really looking forward to making some tattoos. Sadly I don't own Seasons, kinda wish I saw that before I download and deleted other files.
