We asked to see your upholstery tattoos — and you didn’t disappoint!
We asked our followers on Instagram to post photos of their upholstery-related ink, using the hashtag #UpholsteryTattoo, in exchange for a free, limited-edition The Hog Ring sticker.
Lots of trimmers responded, not just on Instagram, but Facebook too!
Below are some of our faves!
It’s hard to believe I’ve been sewing for 30 years! I’ve had so many different jobs pertaining to sewing that I can’t even remember them all. It’s part of my blood at this point. Been doing upholstery for almost 1/3 of that time. And I’ll be doing it a lot longer, probably until my hands don’t work anymore. Thanks to all of you who support me and my craft. Got this little tattoo in 2002? From @michael_a_freeman. @thehogring #upholsterytattoo
Of course, there were also some hilarious submissions…
Check out this “tramp stamp” submitted by Mikey Brown of Mikey’s Kustom Upholstery. We’re not sure what it means or why he chose to have it done, but he definitely deserves props for his sense of humor, dedication to the craft and awesome business branding.
Lastly, hats off to Rorky of O’Rourke Coachtrimmers for this washable marker tattoo taking the piss out of all of us! Even though it’s a fake tattoo, he’s still getting a sticker!
