Poses were created with the female rig as the tattoo artist and the male rig as the tattooee. However you should be able to interchange them without too much issue. There may be some floating or clipping depending on the weight/musculature of your intended sims. You will need to use moveobjects to place your sims in the correct position. Once you cancel the interaction, they will mush together. It looks scary but just direct them to walk away and all will be right with the world again.

You can mix and match some of the poses. 5b and 6b both work with 5a. You can also use alt to adjust your sim to "tattoo" different places though the hands might not line up exactly.

Recommended Custom Content
The poses were made with the following CC. Though they may work with other objects, I cannot guarantee that. The poses do snap together but you will need to adjust the furniture to line it up properly using the alt key.

Additionally, while Ambitions is not needed for this pose pack to function, the first 3 receiving poses were created using the tattoo chair from that expansion pack. It may work with other chairs with arms but I have not tested this.

Tattoo Gun Accessory
This is an edited version of the Ambitions Tattoo Gun. It does not require Ambitions to work. The bottom base (that looked like a drill battery) is gone and the handle is much slimmer to allow for a more controlled grip.
