When craft and body art get together.

When you think about it, embroidery and tattooing have a lot in common. They both require a needle to get started, involve a fair bit of poking, and produce equally intricate styles of art – the only difference is the canvas. It makes sense then, that a number of skilled tattoo artists across the world have been inking embroidery and cross-stitch onto skin, to great effect, too. It’s the perfect combination of craft and punk. Needless to say, we’re digging it.
