The tiger is one of the world’s most revered animals. A tiger design can symbolize power, courage, and strength. Tigers also are well-represented in folklore.
For example, in Chinese folklore, the tiger is seen as a protector of the dead, so those choosing tiger tattoos may also do so in memory of a loved one.
While many men have classic tiger tattoos, getting a geometric tiger tattoo is one way to make the design truly your own. A geometric tiger tattoo is a fusion of modern art with a storied classic, and you can choose how intricate you want the final design to be. Some prefer a tiger’s head encased in a geometric design, while others have opted for a tiger made of lines and various patterns.
Like other geometric variants of classic tattoos, geometric tiger tattoos work well in black and white as well as in color. Sometimes, a watercolor shading can balance the stark lines used to draw the tiger. At other times, an artist can further the geometric look by filling it in with intricate black and white patterns. For those who can’t quite decide, or who just want an especially unique tiger tattoo, you can choose a tiger’s face – half classic, half geometric.
This unique and eye-catching design speaks to a man’s inner strength as well as his attention to details and appreciation for good designs. A geometric tiger tattoo is an excellent tattoo choice for the well-rounded man.
