On a recent trip to San Francisco, some friends and I impulsively went out and got tattooed–and naturally, a couple of us chose crafty themes (you can see them here). This got me wondering about other crafters who have decided to make their love of needle and thread a permanent, ink-on-flesh kinda thing. Turns out there are a lot of them! Pictured above is a sweet yarn pinup from Flickr user KitchenAidCrusader. Below we have Heidi Kenney (My Paper Crane) and her retro “Homemaker” tattoo (photo by Faythe Levine), and HeatherJeany’s nicely-inked embroidery scissors. Got a crafty tattoo of your own? Leave a comment, we’d love to see ’em.
