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.

Heya guys!

Today I have a special goodie for y'all.

I have these tattoo sleeves from a real game character Francis Left4Dead.
Here's the LINK to see the real tattoos.

Anyway, I made these tats specially for Slipslop for his current project.
You're gonna see it soon on this site, I promise

I have to say these tats are the hardest/most difficult one I ever made
cause I had to do everything by myself.
No Tracing, no Magic Wand tool, nothing.
Just good old friend Eraser tool and Patience. XD

For this project I used the real images from Left4Dead TGA files provided by Slipslop.

This one

Now the result
Right & Left Hands

Close Up

As you can see in the screenshots above these tats look different from
my other tats cause the source pics for these are dark (skin color + body hair)
So yeah, that's the best I could do with the tats.

Alright, enough bull..

Anyway, you'll find these in all category outfits including career (as socks accessory)
Are they recolorable?
Oh yes, sir they're recolorable but only 1 alpha channel.
(just like the original tats they only have 1 color)

Non Default
For both gender (from Teen through Elder) and have their own CAS thumbnail.
(see the screenshot)

Enjoy and Happy Simming, Everyone!

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.
