Wild Thing: 26 animal tattoos

This pack of intricate animal doodle/kind-of-mendhi-/kind-of-geometric-style designs came about thanks to a request by @naninha, who asked for some tattoos in the style of Faye Halliday’s stunning drawings. Ask and ye shall (sometimes) receive, so here’s a pack of 26 Ambitions tattoos, of course enabled for male and female, teen-elder, with ONE recolorable channel.

This style of artwork is really interesting and challenging to convert and, while I did a lot of fiddling around with the alphas to get them as clear as possible, these tattoos do look best at larger sizes so you can really appreciate the detail. At smaller sizes they run the risk of looking like squished up blobs, and my original idea of making them 3- or 4-channel hit the same problem; there’s just too much detail in the designs, and multiple colours ended up looking like clown barf, and as I prefer Ambitions tattoos for ease of use in-game, I decided not to mess around trying to make them accessories. Good luck to anyone who attempts it, though!

Source images were edited from pics of designs, real tattoos, free image websites, and comp stock images. As ever, no infringement intended and no profit being made. The tattoos come in separately labelled files so you can pick and choose which ones you want in your game, OR use the file labelled _ALL for the whole collection. Everything has been compressorized, and there’s a handy-dandy guide in the screenshots to which tattoos are which.
