Tattoo Dolls by Mimi Kirchner
To be filed under I want, I want, I want!
These tattooed dolls are hand made by Mimi Kirchner, a Boston-based doll maker and "fiber artist." The faces are individually embroidered, and the bodies are made of reclaimed and over-dyed cotton fabrics (and scraps from her home decorating projects) stuffed with high quality polyester fill. These are not plushies for the kiddies but art toys for adults (although I kinda wanna squish them myself).
The dolls sell for about $250 US and can be purchased via her Etsy store or at markets like the upcoming Brooklyn Renegade Craft Fair, June 5 & 6th, at McCarren Park.
The tattooed pirate doll below is my favorite.
