Embroidery tattoo, also known as patch tattoo, is a color or black and grey tattoo that imitates the texture of embroidery materials, creating a three dimensional effect.

Basically, the little secret of a striking 3D tattoo consists in creating a rich texture design with strong light and shadow contrast and this is what embroidery tattoo is doing.


How did it all start?

An early form of embroidery tattoo was the cross-stitch tattoo, popularized by Eva Karabudak, inspired by the cross-stitch sewing technique, in which small "X" shaped spots formed a whole picture.

One of the pioneers of this style, Tim Beck, created his first patch tattoo back in 2016 and after posting the picture on Instagram, it went viral.

Eduardo "Duda" Lozano, also known as 'The King Of Patch Tattoos', mastered this style and brought the things to another level creating mind-blowing embroidery tattoo designs, mostly inspired by popular cartoon characters.

Tattoo industry is a constantly evolving industry and the latest Instagram obsession with embroidery tattoo clearly shows how fast trends come to light. Same thing happened in 2011 with watercolor tattoos.
