Picked Upload! This is a picked upload! It showcases some of the best talent and creativity available on MTS and in the community.
I always felt that the base tattoo selection of the game was ... weak ... to say the least. So I always wanted to create some more for the game.

This upload contains the first batch of tattoos I created for the game. More to follow soon.

Now I do like to point out, that I DIDN'T create the images itself. I only edited them with (Photoshop and GIMP) and created the packages with Tattooinator. Which is a really awesome application BTW .

Additional Credits:
I would definitely like to credit CmarNYC and his tool Tattooinator without which this upload wouldn't have been possible at all. And also his tutorial on how to create these with GIMP and Tattooinator.

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.
