Hi! I'm really happy with the way these turned out so I hope you like them too.

To begin, let me say that I didn't actually create any of this myself.

From the first time I saw them on Garden of Shadows, Pooklet's 'Compulsion' skins have been my favorite EVER. I simply adore them. She was kind enough to allow me to use them for this project and encouraged me to do it when I first broached the subject. The original skintones can be found here.

The tattoos came from another skintone by Weetzie here on and is located here and here. They're on Enayla's skins and, though I like her skins, I don't really care for them for everyday sims (more for vampires and zombies and such like that). So I extracted the tattoos from the skins and Weetzie kindly gave me permission to use them.

My own contribution came from taking these two elements and putting them together. I took the tattoos for the hands on the second version and converted them to the feet. Then I sort of combined them all together.

There is a small flaw on the design running along the outside and inside of the left foot which I fixed later for the darker skintones. However its only really visible on the medium and it is feet so will generally be covered up with shoes. I don't think it really shows up unless you're looking extremely close-up at the feet. And then probably only if you're looking for it, but I noticed. The flaw, btw, is all mine and Weetzie had nothing to do with it.

There are three sets of all six 'Compulsion' skintones in different mixes of the tattoos. The two darker skins have slightly different colors for the tattoos as the original reddish color didn't look quite right on them. Male and female have the same tattoos because I'm equal opportunity. (Okay, that's not really true. I thought they were a little too girly for males but Pooklet thought they would be fine and it wasn't any real extra work to put it on both male and female, so I did.)

AgingSkins- henna tattoos that progress as the sim ages. Teens start with hands and feet only. Adults add belly and back tattoos. Elders have additional on the left leg.

All tats- henna tattoos on hands, feet, belly, back, and leg for teen-elder

Hands and Feet- henna tattoos on the hands and feet only for teen-elder  

I forgot to take an example picture, but the foot tattoos don't show up very well with the "Sexy-Feet" meshes. However, it does show up with most flat sandals. What I mean is the ones that don't actually cover the foot should show the tattoos still. I did look at them with some custom high-heel meshes where the foot showed and they did appear fine, if a little stretched depending on the mesh.

Thanks again to both Pooklet and Weetzie for allowing me to use their work for this. I'm not talented enough to have come up with anything nearly this good myself.

Great job Dizi!

I have always hated the darkness.
The darkness within the human soul.
Within my soul.
I have always hated a part of myself.
