Geometric tattoos are not just simple shapes of triangles and lines connected to dots. There’s a lot more complexity and meaning integrated into each geometric design. Originally associated with religious and spiritual practices in ancient times, they have evolved into a representation of symbolism and symmetry in modern culture. Geometric designs can be done in all colors using basic common shapes like circles but they can also incorporate shapes from nature such as leaves and stars. Oftentimes, the lines and dots, or triangles connect to create a different and even larger shape that might not be noticeable at first glance.
The meaning behind each design is different and personal to each individual, of course. Some geometric designs include numerals to represent a cosmic connection of someone’s birth chart, but lines could have different meanings as, do triangles, which could represent someone’s feminine side or masculine side.
It’s no surprise the recipient of a geometric tattoo, after the detailed work and hours of sweat and hard labor can be left in awe stunned by the artistic perfection which has been created on a canvas entirely made of skin.
As seen in the first photo, the tattoo design is created with black and white ink and involves lines and circles that cover all the bare skin, so the entire arm is covered in one theme. It’s hard not to get lost in it.
The reason why geometric tattoos are so fascinating is that they absorb you mentally, the longer you stare at a design, the more you notice smaller details such as dot work, which is very common.
