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.
I haven't made any new tattooskins lately, but playing the game, I got bored with the tattooskins I made already, so I decided to make another one. It has 2 sleeves, handtattoos, knuckles, neck and throat and some other stuff.

I made the teen skins with only a few tattoos, as they grow older they get more tattoos, when they finally end up as an elder the tattoos fade slightly...

There were some problems, since Pets EP turns out to be a creator's worst nightmare, if you do not have pets, you need this file: XJX.colorskin.2006.NOEP-Fixed!.rar

I'd like tot thank ohfetishano for helping me out with this problem.
And I'd like to point out how dissapointed I am in MAXIS for giving the creators such a hard time, is this what we get for keeping this game alive?

I hope you like them

the hairmeshes are from this site

3: Rockstar Tattoo Skin

4: Back to the roots Tattoo Skin

I downloaded this, but it doesn't show up. The icon is there in the custom skins directory, but when applied to a sim, no tattoos show. I also have your 'New School' skin and that works fine.

Sorry, it still doesn't work. The only other option is for me to delete the file, and then try and download it with Quickinstaller. That might make a difference *although I don't see how*.

Try using the clean installer. If you have the Pets EP it may be conflicting, I've seen a bunch of people having problems with the new EP and downloaded clothing, skins, and hair.

I'll come back and let you know if it works, I'll go test it right now.

Nope, I don't have the Pets EP just yet *although I do want it badly lol*.

I tried downloading it with Quickinstaller, but it still didn't work.

just as a side note, the file isn't one of those blue 'package' ones, like when you download wallpaper etc. When unzipping with winrar/winzip the file is just a 'white' icon, like you get with other objects.

You're right sweetie, it doesn't work - it just shows up as a regular/dark tan skin with the swatch for the tattoo skin. I just tested it in-game, I'm not sure if it shows up in bodyshop. It's all good - I'll be patient, I just can't wait to have the skin. :P

I'm sorry to say this but the skin doesn't work for me either, I would really like it The icon shows up, when I click on it it goes to maxis skintone. ^ ^ not sure what's wrong...

*EDIT* The skin works now! This skin is so detailed and realistic, I just love it! Thank you so much for this, I can't wait to see what your going to come up with next!!!

#19 Old 4th Nov 2006 at 9:50 AM
No, this skin doesn't show for me either. Odd, all your other ones show up, did you do anything different this time? Another odd thing is that the top of the head dissapears in bodyshop.
It's a lovely looking skin in your pics, hope you get it sorted. Love your tattoos!!

The wonder is that we can see these trees and not wonder more.

well, I did everything from scratch again, I reimported the project, made a new logo for it, so you see the difference, it's a new file.
so you might wanne retry, if it doesn't work now, I give up, cuz I have no idea what the problem is.

I'm sorry. I guess it must be my computer as I downloaded it again, but I still get the same blank skin which shows up. I tried it in game and nothing.

Is there a certain amount of custom skins you can have? I've run out of ideas as to why it's working for some and not for me. Considering all of the other skins have worked.
