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 used to be well known on here for my tattooskins for The Sims 2.
For some reason though, The Sims 3 didn't run very well on my high end pc, so no Sims 3 game, sadly no Sims 3 mods.
But recently I finally managed to get the Sims 3 up and running.
It soon itched to get some of my tattooskins in the game. It took me about 24 hours to figure it out and remake one of my most popular skins for the Sims 2

found here

It might look the same, but trust me it's not... It's a lot better, much more detail and overall a lot cleaner.

It works for both male and females.
It's a recolor of socks, so found in accessories.
It's not possibly to recolor ofcourse, but you can make them brighter/darker to you personal preferance. Might be needed to make the tattoos look good on lighter/darker skintones... Obviously these will not look good on very dark skintones.
I tested it and it doesn't stay on in the showers, I don't think a hack/mod is possible for this.... but it does stick in all other outfits, including the some of thework outfits that I've tested ...

  • Left arm has a Maneki Neko (lucky cat) and Kanji with fire&water on forearm, the upper arm has a Geisha on the outside and a different Geisha on the inside. (Geisha= Traditional female Japanese entertainers whose skills include performing various arts such as classical music and dance.
  • Right arm has a wraparound of a Dragon rising out of leaves and flowers and water...
  • Back piece has a Cut up Taisho Sanke Koi, the meaning of this is: According to legend, the koi climb the waterfall bravely, and if they are caught, they face their death on the cutting board bravely like samurai. Other Japanese meanings include perseverance and strength. So a cut up Koi is a reminder to never give up and always keep going ...
  • Chest has a Hikarimono Koi on right side and a demon mask on left side + Kanji running down the chest
  • Belly piece Has flowers and a Inugami (japanese dog spirit) fighting with a tiger that runs down on left upper thigh.
  • The left leg has the tiger mentioned above and a series of flowers and demon masks
  • The right leg has a demon mask+ Storm clouds with lightning falling down on the Samurai with katana drawn.
