Arguably the most exposed area of a man’s body in even the most conservative environments, the forearms can be a powerful platform for showcasing the best tattoo work.
Geometric designs are both sophisticated and sexy, and speak of a classier penchant for the world of ink art.
And should anyone question the history of sacred tattoo geometry, just enlighten them to the fact that the ancient Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, and Indians honored the geometric world of shapes and patterns in everything from their architecture to mathematical equations.
From hexagonal cells to prismatic flowers, geometric forearm tattoos were made for finer geometric forms. A traditional Japanese wave can be transformed through geometric dimensional circles, while a succession of arrows raining down the forearm in darkly descending hues creates a beautiful contradiction of both the simple and complex.
Designs intended to form a whole once the forearms are brought together are particularly stunning, allowing for an endless combination of subjects ranging from dazzling shapes to majestic animals.
Those who wear their tattoo creations on their forearms intend for them to be seen without apologies or explanations. Be prepared, however, to withstand the waves of praise that are bound to come your way thanks to an irresistible geometric upgrade.
