my creative space

This week, with school holidays and all, I have been spending a lot of time on flickr looking at inspiration for the swap, the far far away quiltmini quilts and.....sewing tattoo's
I do like a tattoo.
I currently only have one but would love another! And to have a bit of sewing in there would be awesome.

my first. detail. by Angela Donnithorne.

new addition to the crafty arm by imagingermonkey.

Lauryn's Embroidery Tattoo by GLiTcH-ViXeN.

Alis volat propriis. by jilleatsapples.

Sewing Flash by sunnybuick.

new buttons tattoo by Rabbit & the Duck.

Dream by didemtali.

ink 001 by cherrypievintage.

tattoo by Robes of Earth.

My fresh ink by fight night designs.

Birdie-Christina Christie by ByrneDarkly.

I'm thinking....if I'm brave enough, of having a group of sewing things and then having thread coming out to 'stitch' out the kids names. I love the needle in the skin. And colour! And birds! So much inspiration! Not a fan of the massive tatts but I appreciate the work and art involved.

Time will tell....
More spaces over here xox

Wow, you are definately braver than me - the needle in the skins sends shivers down my spine. Love to see what you decide.

Gina said...

I like the simplicity of the needle. I was romancing the idea of a tat a few years ago... don't know why but I backed off. Boring.

Kerri said...

They look great. I will hold you hand when I get up there while you get it done. Deal.

I don't have a single tattoo but wow I love the needle and the buttons those two would be sew cute :P And if I could convince myself to go big that embroidery would be delightful.
