hi! i'm new here & couldn't help noticing all the lovely tattoo embroideries... so i thought i'd make a contribution.

this is a cross stitch i made for friends working at swahili bob's tattoo & piercing in stockholm, sweden. the text is the swedish version of "no pain, no gain" but the more literal translation would be "if you want to look good, you have to suffer".

apparently i can't post pics here yet, so just take a look at these links instead:





(sorry for the crappy quality of the photos)

thanks! i'm pretty proud of it now that it's finished, it's actually the fourth version (the other three didn't turn out that well).

I dig it!  Love the roses and the skulls!  The colors are great too... I have no patience for cross stitch... so more power to you!

Human rights are for EVERYONE.  Did you know that Aung San Suu Kyi had been released from house arrest in Burma? Many other prisoners of conscience are still being detained.  Please research this topic... Amnesty International needs your help.
