For the longest time I've had this beautiful Geisha image sitting on my hard drive. I've always wanted to convert it to a tattoo, but due to the four color channel limitations I was never able to quite get it how I wanted it. But, thanks to Ambition's new tattoo system, I was finally able to put that image to some use!



Note: The in-game pics are a tad crunchy due to the way my machine rendered the graphics. However, please see the CAS shots for better details.

This geisha tattoo is actually *four* tattoos layered together. This allowed me to give full customization to the tattoo and preserve the tiny details.



There are a total of 12 different recolorable areas. Some are so tiny that you can't see a difference in CAS, so I'll list the areas for you, from bottom to top layer.

Bottom Layer
-Flowers/Eye Shadow
-Leaves/Stem
-Flowers on Head Piece

Second Layer
-Wrap/Head Piece
-Beads
-Chop Sticks

Third Layer
-Skin
-Lipstick
-Eyes

Top Layer
-Hair
-Hair Shine
-Tattoo Outline



In order to use this custom tattoo you MUST have Ambitions installed! If you have just patch 1.12, but not Ambitions, the tattoo will not show up for you.

This tattoo will function just like the EA tattoos do, which means they are available for male/female teens - elder.

Additional Credits:
I found the Geisha image here. The original creator is not listed, but it's a free site and I saw no copy right.

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.
