Ink your body with these gorgeous cross stitch tattoos


When it comes to cross stitch patterns, our thoughts immediately turn to our grandmothers and their lovely designs. But the tattoos? Turns out people actually got inked with such designs and the looks were amazingly beautiful!

Cross stitch tattoos

Aren’t they just the cutest?

Started by a tattoo artist, Eva krbdk, this trend incorporates this style of timeless embroidery into tattoos. Since the method involves complex geometric patterns, it actually requires a lot of hard work and precision. In addition, there are usually a variety of colors used which makes the process much longer.

While the most popular requests are for flowers and fruits, there have also been peculiar designs. In the animal category, we chose pandas, dinosaurs and even Kermit the frog! Cross stitch car tattoos are also part of its offerings.

However, the most intriguing are those of the celebrities. Eva actually tattooed her thigh with the image of Frida Kahlo, decorated with a beautiful pattern of roses.

She even created a replica of Marilyn Monroe in the same way! Here’s a quick video of the process:
