Perhaps no other art forms are as polar opposites as embroidery and tattoos. One’s a traditional art enjoyed by your grandmother while the other is often detested by older people, branding youngsters who have it as “rebels.” The only common thing between the two? Nothing much except the fact that they both require the use of needles.
Well who could’ve guessed that they would look good when combined together? As always, the internet has proven to surprise us in wonderful ways. We totally didn’t see this marriage between the two art forms but once we discovered it, we just couldn’t get enough.
You see, embroidery tattoos are now a thing and the pictures below simply prove that it’s one of the coolest ideas ever when it comes to skin art. Check out the compilation below and we do not doubt you’ll be nodding in agreement that, yes, embroidery tattoos are 100% awesome!
Pretty impressive, huh? And a very unique concept, too, if I may add. It’s amazing how “the rich, textured designs look like the ink has been sewn into the skin, and take on an almost 3D appearance as they ‘pop’ out at you,” as Bored Panda accurately describes it.
Personally, I dig #15 (that very realistic-looking tape measure adds to its appeal) along with #27 because Rick and Morty! Also, the Homer Simpson one (#6) is good. The Duff crown is definitely a nice touch.
In case you are interested to see more, you can head over to Instagram and check out the hashtag #embroiderytattoo. You might even be convinced to get one of these tattoos yourself and if you ever reach that mindset, the good news here for you is that you will find lots of inspiration from that source. Just make sure you find a good tattoo artist in your area!

Spanish Artist Recreates Famous Roman Emperors Through Stunning Sculptures
Julius Caesar, Augustus, and Nero come to life in these amazing hyperrealistic sculptures.
The Roman Empire may have been gone for thousands of years yet people are still intrigued about the great rulers who once led during the notorious period. However, what we know of them is still very limited and we only see what they may have looked like through marble statues. Luckily, one Spanish artist is changing all that. His works are bringing some of the most famous Roman emperors to life through hyperrealistic sculptures.
Césares de Roma is the Spanish sculptor's ongoing project that aims to spread knowledge of the Roman Empire through art. "Césares de Roma was born from the need to spread Roman classic history from a more human, real and modern perception," the artist tells us through a BoredPanda feature. "Recreating the faces of Roman rulers and emperors who died more than two thousand years ago is not something that should be left to chance. For this reason and with the aim of bringing them back to our time, the exhaustive study of numismatics, sculptures, reliefs and classical literary sources that have reached our days, making it possible for us to approach the real aspect as closely as possible, plays a fundamental role."

Italian Sculptor Created Masterpiece From A Single Slab Of Marble In Just 7 Years
Francesco Queirolo was the only artist who was brave enough to take on the difficult task.
There is little doubt that artists who worked with marble during the 18th century were true geniuses. However, one Italian sculptor stands out among the rest. When the Prince of Sansavero ordered the creation of a challenging piece from a single slab of marble, most artists declined due to its complexity. However, one man took on the challenge and completed the masterpiece in just seven years.
Francesco Queirolo was a sculptor from Genoa who was active in Rome and Naples during the Rococo period. The Italian artist created several amazing works. However, he is best known for the masterpiece he made for Raimondo di Sangro, Prince of Sansevero. The prince asked Queirolo to work on a monument to Raimondo's father. The artist obliged and created the famed Il Disinganno of Cappella Sansevero.
Queirolo worked on the masterpiece for seven years.
