About this mod

Adds over 40 different colorable tattoos for males and females of every race to the RaceMenu.

Permissions and credits

This mod adds over 40 Racemenu Overlay Plugin (or simply "Tattoos") to your game. They only affect the player character so no NPC will have them and every tattoo can be used by males and females of every race. Further you can adjust color, transparency, brightness and more. You can equip up to 6 tattoos at the same time so there're nearly endless possibilities to customize your character. If you don't know how to equip a tattoo with RaceMenu look at the tutorial at the end of this page.
The tattoos should be compatible with UNP/CBBE and custom races like the Ningheim.

To run this mod you'll need:

RaceMenu by Expired (v2.0.0 and above)
• SKSE for RaceMenu
• Optional: Show RaceMenu Precache Killer 

If you have problems getting this mod to work please consider these things:

• Install the "Loose Base Scripts" from the RaceMenu page
• Try setting this value in skse.ini:
iTintTextureResolution= 2048

• Set the texture quality in the launcher to "High"
• Install the 2K version
• Have you really looked in the "Body Overlay"-Section of the RaceMenu?
• Load the KJ Tattoos.esp after the RaceMenu .esp
• Install the files manually

                                                                    Here are some examples of the tattoos, in total 47 Tattoos!

I only used assets that are freely available but if someone has a problem with this kind of usage please tell me and i'll immediately remove the file. Thanks to everyone who makes free-to-use stuff, without you many things wouldn't be possible!
