a new tattooskin by XJX

I learned a lot while making my first tattooskin, this is my second, and it's technically better, it's a good sleeve, I did not make it different for male and female except for a few details, they both start out with random tattoos as a teen, the male teen even covers up his Biceps tattoo over time.
They also have a different kanji in the neck.


and please give me suggestions, for next tattooskins.

Most wonderous! I hope they have their bits! Heck, even if they don't I will take 'em!!! (I use crammyboy's nudist hack, and they just look wierd as barbies..)


Heh, I have been trying to do a decent tat skin forever it seems, but they just don't look right/real. What is your secret?

Thankyou for these, I love the detail and japanese style tattoos are my favourite <3
However, I have one small suggestion for your next skin (ignore it if you want ); the main reason that I don't use tattoo skins often is that I don't like the Maxis base skin. So if you used, for example, SimCribbling skins as the base, I would love you even more I think this is allowed, as long as you acknowledge the creator of the base skin.
Example here.
Thanks again!

Great great great tattoos you have made!!! They are very fantastic! I will use there for making a modern japanese male/female Yakuza-Gangster-Connection like Tarantinos "Kill Bill Vol. 1-2" and let they are mobsters my sweet Sim-City "Arcadia". Thanks a lot for this fine stuff.

I absolutely love how you've faded it to give the appearance of age as the sim transitions from Adult to Elder. Absolutely wonderful thinking and again, beautiful art and colors!

I really like the progression of tattoos over time. Gives my sims even more realism. Thank you - these are much appreciated.
