Apparently, Embroidery Tattoos Are A Thing And It Looks Cooler Than It Sounds – Design You Trust

Apparently, Embroidery Tattoos Are A Thing And It Looks Cooler Than It Sounds


Two art forms, both involving the use of needles, but seemingly worlds apart. But no more. Embroidery, a classical art that you are more likely to associate with your grandma, has combined with the tattoo scene to create beautiful, folky designs that are both unique and traditional at the same time.

The results speak for themselves. The rich, textured designs look like the ink has been sewn into the skin, and take on an almost 3D appearance as they ‘pop’ out at you. Many designs are a contemporary take on a timeless technique, with a series of tiny x’s combining to form a bigger picture.

What do you think? Would you consider getting a tattoo like this?
