So my dear friend @rachirdsims asked me if it would be possible to make the vampire veins useable for aliens and asked me for help on the project. So here are all of the vampire veins that came with the Vampire Pack as tattoos. All of the face veins are the original textures that came with the pack. The arms/legs are textures I made myself using the other veins. Since I did use the original color that the original veins were made with, they might look reddish on the lighter skintones that are more yellow/peach based.
Teen - Elder
Base Game Compatable
Works well with custom skins/skintones/overlays
So since I wanted full and complete customization with these, each tattoo is mapped on it’s own tattoo slot. Which means, you can use the mouth, eye, arm, cheek and leg tattoos individually or together, including left and right sides. (Left cheek with right arm and left leg - I hope I explained that right.)
These are the corresponding slots for each tattoo.
Left Cheek - Upper Arm (Left)
Right Cheek - Upper Arm (Right)
Eye - Upper Chest
Left Leg - Leg (Left)
Right Leg - Leg (Right)
Mouth - Lower Chest
Left Arm - Lower Arm (Left)
Right Arm - Lower Arm (Right)
Feel free to recolor these how you like, but please don’t claim as yours, reupload or include my textures in your download.
As a sidenote, @rachirdsims has already recolored these and I’ll link them once they’re up. =D
The Lover Boys are a group of ill-moral, jerky boys who dominate New York’s skate scene (or something). I might start a comic of them.
This is Snake-eye. He’s 5'9" and an Aquarius. Nobody knows his real name, and no one is really sure what he’s like, but he likes to describe himself as “Chinatown trash.” His parents run a small souvenir shop on Mott, in which they run fake Gucci and Louis Vuitton bags (and they make a decent living doing it too). If you meet Snake-eye in real life, he’ll probably start the conversation by bragging how he *almost* stole some beanie from that shady “supreme” store in that one Chinatown mall. Snake-eye is the last member of the Lover Boys, so naturally, he’s bullied upon and got forced to get a heart-shaped $100 face tattoo as a show of fraternity. Hey, at least it’s not on his chest.
This is Mark “Jacobs” King, and no, no one calls him Jacobs. He’s 5'11" (but calls himself 6'2") and a Leo. He is somehow part of the skate team without knowing how to skate; in fact, all of his shoes are Docs. Mark “hates drama” but he’s also the only Lover Boy who starts drama. He also has the habit to calling anyone, even someone he spoke for 6 minutes in sophomore year, his “best friend.” Mark is annoying, petty, and easily bored, but believe it or not, he’s probably the nicest guy in this gang.
This is Kazuo Wang. He’s 5'11" and a Capricorn. Kazuo is half Japanese and half Chinese, is a vegan, doesn’t smoke (except for herbal cigarettes), and doesn’t drink (except for the wine at art openings). He speaks English, Japanese, Chinese and he also feels like he’s superior to everyone else. He is a “photographer” (according to his tinder profile), which basically means he owns a black-and-white aesthetic Instagram featuring pictures of chain link fences. Kazuo’s neck tattoo was an impulsive decision made in St. Marks, which he got disowned for, but his forearm tattoo is fake (a temporary tattoo reapplied every two days), but he tells everyone it’s real. Kazuo is cold, smart, and a real jerk but he’s probably the most successful on out of the Lover Boys.
This is Tucker “Tuck” Finley. He’s 5'10" and a Pisces. Tuck feels existential dread everyday, but at this point he’s become numb to it. He channels all of his energy into being a music elitist, skating (mediocrely), and writing poetry or songs. He hates the Smiths but he still references their songs – there’s too much caffeine in his bloodstream, and a lack of real spice in his life. Tuck isn’t even that good of a writer, like he still confuses “you’re” and “your.” Tuck is going to major in music and philosophy, so he’s basically learning the art of unemployment.
This is Scott “Scooter” McKinley, he’s an Aries and he’s 5'7". His favorite bands are the Butthole Surfers and the Beastie Boys, and when he goes to college (assuming he if he goes), he wants to be a political science major. Scooter is the type of guy who pretends to go “hard in the motherfucking paint”, but is actually from Park Slope. He started smoking Marlboro Reds as a joke (or for the look) but he might actually be addicted now. As with all short guys, he has a volcanic temper to compensate for his height. He also loves fighting, arguing and feeling like he’s winning (when he may or may not be).
Yooooooooo that back tattoo is kickass! Not to mention super beautiful! How hard was it to do the rainbow? It also looks lineless, which can't have been easy either
Thanks! I sat in the chair about three hours or so. It’s all Watercolor tattooing but both the shading and lining needles were used. She put the stencil on my back first which looked like this:
Then she started with the bottoms first. The whole time I didn’t get to see the progress at all. Which I was a-okay with. I gave her a toooooon of references and I absolutely happy about this. The only part in the tattoo that has black ink is part of the face and eye detail, which was followed up by some white. Which you can see here:
You can tell what parts she used the lining needle pretty easily. Which I love about her watercolor style. Because honestly, if you play with water colors on paper it does leave the darker edges - and that is what I adore about this. I can’t wait for the scabbing to go away and share the final healed tattoo.
Also another tattoo that this artist did of mine is the one on my arm!
^ That one has been healed for a while. Shockingly the cat hasn’t managed to scratch this arm since.
Welll so my day was weird and I ate half a potato and listened to swang by rae sremmurd which is my favorite song everrr ever in the world. And I would tell you about my crush but I have a million crushed so it would take forever but my MAIN crush has tattoos and plays the guitar and i wanna squish his cheeks *blushy face* well thanks for listening i love you <3
@sanderssides-fics I can’t draw faces or shade properly or draw tattoos but I wanted to try to draw Logic with said tattoos….. Hope you think it’s as tolerable as I do! I image he’d like geometric things?
