Sometimes overlooked as too basic, the geometric design world is open to an unbelievable amount of history and symbolism.
Most simple line designs are derived from basic tribal designs, though some seek out modern inspiration in the form of minimalism.
These tribal designs were often given to signify a life event or to mark the passing of a rite to advance your standing in the community. The marks were placed in specific locations so that other who have gone through the same rite could immediately see who and what standing you were.
Not unlike today’s tattoos. Today we look upon people with tattoos to be one of a special kind. Choosing the right geometric design for you and choosing the placement carefully will speak volumes with simple clean lines.
But don’t feel you need to go tribal. You can absolutely make your own design, or trust a skilled artist to create one for you. Turning a phrase or a memorable word into a geometric design makes your message stand out from the crowd.
If your placement is a good one, geometric shapes can even enhance your body’s natural contours, making musculature look deeper, or angles of the body sharper.
Simple line designs allow you to showcase the unique you with simplicity, freshness, and deep symbolism. Which one is right for you?
