What better way to show your love for the craft, than to have it inked into your skin? Now you’ll never be separated from your needles, hooks and yarn, no matter what calamity might befall you.
Tsunami soaked all your yarn? You can look at your tattoo and recall happier times as you drape wet skeins over the rubble of your former home. Earthquake buried all your knitting supplies? Well, at least you have a memento to remember them by. Volcano erupted in the middle of your living room? Well... here’s hoping you got out in time and with your skin intact.
For more awesomely crafty ink:
This tattoo has special meaning for Pam of FlintKnits. It’s not only an homage to her favorite craft, it’s also honoring her hometown of Flint Michigan.
See? Michigan is shaped like a mitten (with a lumpy rabbit jumping over it), and the heart on the tattoo marks exactly where Flint would be.
I don’t know exactly what the symbolism is behind this one, but I adore the little skulls on the ends of her knitting needles.
Very goth! In a bright orangey mum-flower kind of way.
Because if you’re going to get a knitting tat, it might as well be seriously bad ass.
No one’s going to mess with this knitter. She’s armed and dangerous!
Yes, dear reader, knitting and crocheting are now officially counter-culture. How does it feel to finally be one of the cool kids?
