UT Tutorial – Lace Up Socks

Love socks, hate how hard they are to hoop?

You can fold down a tiny edge and maybe embroider them that way, but I want a big, splashy, bold design on my knee high socks to pair with all my favorites boots. Well, if you get a little creative about the “sock” part, you’ll find you can embroider your design anywhere you want it, and then rock your socks in a new fierce lace-up fashion.

It’s easy to do and looks pretty cool to boot. Make em’ a pair of tattoo socks with our latest Seven Seas series, or rock whatever look suits you this fall.

New Collection – The Seven Seas

We’re very excited to announce a brand new collection today… The Seven Seas.

Inspired by vintage tattoo designs, often influenced by Japanese culture, these light stitching designs offer a slightly more elegant look to the modern tattoo theme.

Open fills and running stitch keep these designs light while still letting them have a bold splash of color. Like real tattoos, they’ll take on a hint of the color behind them, gradually fading out in a beautiful ombre effect.

They’re fantastic for projects too, like this upcoming tutorial on how to make fiercely fashionable lace up socks, great for pairing with boots in the upcoming fall weather.

From elegant to edgy, these designs can suit guys and gals alike. Find some beauty in the old world styling of Japanese-inspired sailor tattoos, with deep blues of the seas and splashes of color in our popular painterly style.

You can grab the whole collection as a pack right here, and better yet, they’re on sale for a limited time!

Avast, ye sailors. There be monsters here.

Urban Threads Ink

Check out this awesome new ink from Urban Threadster Laurel!

She used our Shoulder Swallows design to stitch this beautiful tattoo on the back of her neck. I think this is a really gorgeous rendition of these designs.

Laurel isn’t the first UT fan to get inked. I thought it high time to do a quick roundup of all the Urban Threads inspired ink we’ve had come in since we started making designs…

Urban Threadster Amanda got a gorgeous mix of our steampunk koi and earth mother.

Urban Threadster Becky went under the gun to get this gorgeous stitchy creation. Isn’t she such a doll? Incidentally, this same design was used recently to be turned into a real life doll!

Flickr user Terryboc used our flourish design to take her wolf, representing her father, and her horse, representing her mother, and tie it all together.

steampunk butterfly tattoo

Jacqueline got this sweet steampunk tattoo, based on the steampunk butterfly design.

pirate captain's UT tattoo (really)

Cap’n Linda with her favorite UT skully, based on our Celtic Skull design. Seriously, she’s a pirate captain. She even has a matching flag.

Craft or Die tattoo

Finally, Annie got the tattoo-style Craft or Die design as an actual tattoo on her arm. I just adore the colors in this one.

*EDIT* – We have a new one!

Earth Mother Tattoo

Heather loved the Earth Mother design so much, she got this gorgeous tattoo inspired by it. I love the interpretation by the tattoo artist.

Got an Urban Threads tattoo of your own? Share a photo — we’d love to see!

More Crafty Ink

Another Urban Threadster goes under the gun. What an amazing tattoo! Isn’t she such a doll?

Way to rock the ink Becky.

Another Urban Threadster Gets Inked!

My new tattoo

Check it! Another crafter has gone under the ink gun armed with some UT designs, and the results are fabulous. Terryboc says…

The wolf is for my father, who loved them. The horse is for my mother who gifted me with the joy of riding. The flourish design by Urban Threads represents me who ties us all together.

Bold and beautiful work. I wonder if I’ll ever be brave enough for a tattoo?
