Been wanting to make a new set of tattoos for my simmies for a while, but I was totally out of ideas: it was only a couple of days ago that I realised that I was totally missing some ace of spades themed tattoos. So... here's a set of ace of spades tattoos for your simmies!
There are five tattoos in this set, each of them has its own package. Here's a preview:

"Card classic" is the first one on the left: it's the typical ace of spades design you find on cards.
"Classic" is the second one, another pretty common design, more simple compared to the first.
"Inverted" is a little more elaborated... and inverted, as the name says XD

"Motorhead" takes its name from the band's famous logo.
"Skull"... well, is the one with the skull

You'll find all the packages in the .RAR file and you can pick and choose the ones you want to install.

The tattoos have only one recolourable channel (as shown in the images) and require Ambitions to work. They'll be found under the "tattoos" section in Genetics.
They work for both males and females (as all other Ambitions tattoos). Hope you'll like them! =)

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.

You said that Motorhead got their name from their logo, but there is also a song by an older band, Hawkwind, called Motorhead. The way I heard it, the guy who wrote the song used to be in Hawkwind, got kicked out, and named his new band Motorhead so that the old band couldn't ever play his song again. Good story, but don't remember what magazine I read that in. Cheers.
