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.
Well, after a lot of cussing and fussing, here is my first skintone! I really hope you all like it!

The adults and elders have a tattoo, the males have a pig on their chest and the females have the Chinese symbol for pig on the small of their back. (Please correct me if I'm wrong at all so I can change it..or let me know if I lost too much detail.) If enough people ask, I will consider a similar skintone without the tattoos.

They all have freckles and as they age the freckles become more predominant.. the elders even get a few age spots and as you can see below, time hasn't been good to poor old grandpa! Can anyone say "grandpa put your dentures back in?!"

Anyway, I spent quite a bit of time on these, and if you find any flaws at all, please pm me as soon as possible so that I may correct them. I have been playing with this family only for an hour or so and the only thing I noticed is that a red line seems to appear on the female adults neckline. I'm not sure if it's just my old eyes or not, though. Maybe I'm just picky.

The screenshots for the females have pictures with a little makeup and none at all, just to clarify. I purposely made the adult females lips appear a little fuller and with not much for tinting as there are soooooo many lipsticks out there as it is. Also, the eyes in the pictures are by me, I have just been too lazy to get a collection enough to post, so if you all hound me, maybe I'll move a little faster.

Here are the links for the creators mentioned in additional credits:

Thanks and enjoy!

Additional Credits:
I want to thank Bruno, Nouk, and the creators at LaPink for their hair and makeup used in the screenshots! Y'all rock! If I missed anyone, you better "yell" at me for it!

lol, Duh, I never even thought to do that! Thanks for the idea. I don't have any of the sims 2 stuff anymore, but maybe I'll go retro, dig up my old files and do that! lol I always did want to do a nicer version without the tattoo, too.
