Less painful than a real tattoo


Fumbling around with the idea of an embroidery tattoo -and seen some lovely ones with just outlines. Can't say quite how much I love black Aida cross-stitch fabric and so just sort of doodled around and here's what I came up with. Bright colours work best and I did sketch it out on a scrap of paper first...but then changed my mind quite a lot. Either way, easily done and mightily satisfying. Plus it has the added bonus of being un-pickable (unlike my real one which has suffered somewhat since pregnancy....let that be a lesson to us all).
Still some debate as to whether it says 'sex' or 'sew'...
