Continuing the discusses about modern tattoos, I would like to talk about the new increasingly popular style Embroidery Tattoo or Patches. Unlike the original craft, these tattoos are mostly based on a few basical techniques: Cross-stitch and Thin thread.

It is difficult to say exactly who was the first brought this technique to the tattoo, but such works began to appear in the portfolio of artists around the world. For example, Eva Krbdk periodically uses the cross-stitch technique,

but more popular works in the technique of "thin thread", which in our subjective opinion are more spectacular. The finest work with a detailed of each millimeter of image with helping of competent work with light and shadow allows artists to embody Embroidery art in Tattoo.

Among the tattoo artists experimenting with this style is worth noting:

Russell Van Schaick - is a world-renowned master of watercolor sketch-tattoo, in whose portfolio more and more Patches can be found.

The Italian artist Mirko Gallo uses a rather unusual and distinctive technique in his Patch tattoos.

And this is not all tattoo artists experimenting with this technique. Perhaps, in the very near future, experiments will grow into a real fashion trend.

And what do you think about these type of tattoos?
