One of my favorite ways to make my sims feel more unique from one another is to add tattoos and body piercings so they can express themselves, however, the sims team just hasn’t given us enough unique and fun options for tattoos in the game.
Thankfully, there are cc creators out there who are constantly raising the bar and creating beautiful cc clothes and even cc tattoos that you can download and add to your game to make your sims much more interesting.
We decided to compile over 50 of our favorite custom content tattoos from across the internet so you guys can find them all in one place and see some of the cutest ones out there without hassle.
The very first tattoo on this rather long list is a set of animal tattoos that are super gorgeous and are on the thigh of your sim. These are available for all genders and look awesome on your sim’s left leg.
These tats are a super sweet option because it lets you show off your sim’s spirit animal and you could choose from a lion, an owl or even a wolf.
Arana tattoos are a really beautiful collarbone tattoo with simple line work that really packs a punch. These tattoos come in all sorts of branches and leaves options for your sims to rock.
