Anyone know of any good sites to get tattoo patterns that are great for embroidery?

Or even books?

I went to my friend's tattoo shop, asked him if I could use his books and such to comb through for designs for me to use, he even did some photocopies in his shop for me so I didn't have to sit there and trace... I also am a member of Inkednation.com, if I end up seeing a tattoo there that I like I ask the artist for permission to recreate his artwork in embroidery, most (I think all) have been honored that I'd asked them and say yes.

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.

Oh thanks so much. You gave me an idea! I'm such a dork. Roll Eyes  My nephews Dad use to work in a tattoo shop! His brother too!
They are in another state, but I might be able to get something from them if I ask my sister to make copies or something. If they still have books and stuff. It's been several years and they (my sister & nephew's dad) just got back together!!  Grin

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

Some of the tattoo magazines have flash art in the back of them. You might want to check those out too. Google flash art and I bet you find a lot too.

I think Dover Publications (you can google them for their website) has clip art books, some come with CDs, that are devoted to tattoo stuff

There are several books of Sailor Jerry Stencils available.  I LOVE both of mine and have used them for so many projects.  They are traditional tattoo outlines so they are perfect for embroidery and there are so many possibilities to experiment with color.  The Mitch O'Connell Tattoo Book is also a great resource.
