The Vitruvian Man tattoo is a classic take on the Renaissance philosophy, which championed art and the beauty of human intellect and nature.
It showcases the quiet majesty of the present, and it emphasizes the mathematical precision and aesthetic merit of the human body.
The subject’s proportions and anatomy are showcased for this purpose. The concept is based from Leonardo Da Vinci’s signature sketch done in the late 1400’s.
Da Vinci himself epitomized the ideal of the period, and replication of his artwork on the body communicates an appreciation of history and a humanistic outlook.
Individuals hoping to relate man to nature are drawn to this design. Popular locations are the chest, wrist, and upper calf.
