The person who crochets may be a granny in a rocking chair with an afghan on her lap or a big buff football player or anyone else in between. One of the options is a cool young woman with an edgy passion for self-expression, a hooking girl who colors her hair and inks her body. Fall into that category? Here are ten ideas for crochet tattoos you might like:

  2. I don’t have a crafty tattoo yet, but you’ll have to make an addition to this post when I do: My plan for a new tattoo is a diagram for a granny square, done in three rounds (and three colors). I hope I can get this to work and look good! :)
