Urban Threads Gets Inked

Well, not US, literally… I’m still far too much of a wuss to get a tattoo. But other Urban Threadsters like Amanda are far braver than I… check it out!

A mix of our steampunk koi and earth mother, both beautifully modified by Industry Ink to make a really gorgeous tattoo! I’m smitten!

Perhaps this will make me a little braver…

    Don’t feel bad about being a “wuss”. I got one small tattoo last year and will never do another. Too much pain for me…lol!

    Her tattoo is gorgeous and I love how she’s combined your 2 patterns!

    It was truly a design to “Dye” for! I purchased about 6 different patterns from you (Stock art works best for the artist but I also purchased the hand embroidery patterns of each for the clean lines) and Nick and Industry helped me put it all together. Love your art so much I wear it! <3 Amanda

    This is this highest form of flattery, right? Actually, when I was brainstorming for a new tattoo I came to your site and searched your art here too & saw a dozen things that would look AMAZING on! Haven’t used one yet, but when I do (& I’m sure the day will come) I’ll be sure to let you know!!

    XOXO

      I’d love to see it! We could have a whole series going, I think this is the …5th? Urban Threads tattoo so far? I want to see more! What designs are you pondering?

    Just waiting for the right tiger to come along, and then I have what I need for my Mommy tattoo. :-) And if you do ever get rid of that case of chickens, consider placing your first tattoo on a fleshy spot. Doesn’t hurt nearly as much as the neck, ankle, or fingers.

      I’ll be sure to let you know when I stop being a wuss ;)

      Danielle (our crazy digitizer) has a beautiful arm sleeve and teases me about my lack of nerves…
