The decision to get a tattoo also goes through other choices, among them, the style that the tattooed design will have. Currently, there are several techniques and it is common, after choosing the figure that will be represented, to have doubts about which one to use, whether the drawing will be colored or just black, etc.
Some of the best known techniques available are watercolor, pointillism, old school, new school, realism, shades of gray and in this article, you will learn more about the geometric style, which can also be combined with any of the other methods mentioned above.
We can define geometric tattoos as “all those whose structure is simple basic shapes or composed using the square, circle, rectangle, triangle, for example”, explains tattoo artist @Max_Tattoo. But it doesn’t stop there, many drawings (or parts of them) can also be represented with the technique: “they can be adapted for more complex drawings such as the flower of life or also a metatron cube”, he comments.
Basically, any design can have a geometric version. “Today, geometric art is applied to almost all types of designs, such as animals, mandalas or just the basic design like the triangle,” says the tattoo artist.
