Ink Grandma Would Approve Of

cross stitch tattoo

The crafting community and tattoo world collide in this brilliant woman’s unique take on ink art. Eva Krbdk is the Turkey-based tattoo artist who took her love of cross-stitch and transformed the canvas for the needlework from fabric to the human body.

Although some of you out there may not be familiar with cross-stitch, you most likely have seen these little works of embroidery before without even knowing it. This form of counted-thread embroidery’s signature look is the x-shaped patterns that the images are created with.

Krbdk’s use of the x-pattern in tattoos gives the images a captivating pixilation, for an entirely new aesthetic. You can see her innovative cross-stitch designs on her Instagram account, along with her prolific collection of equally beautiful tattoo art.
