Embroidery tattoos are nothing new, but the way that Mexican tattoo artist M.Fernanda Álvarez does them is really special. Her technique includes mimicking satin stitches, while the majority of the designs is inspired by Mexico’s culture and heritage.
“I always wanted to imprint Mexican culture in tattoos, but also give a delicate personal touch, and I found all that in the colorful Mexican embroidery style,” she told My Modern Met in a recent interview.
Her works are colorful and filled with nature motifs like flowers and birds. She also uses the style of arrangements and the negative space in the skin to make the tattoos even more eye-catching.
