Top 47 Minimalist Mountain Tattoo Ideas [2021 Inspiration Guide]
The mountains have long provided man with a much-needed sanctuary and source of unlimited abundance.
Beautiful and yet shrouded in mystery, the mighty mountain is in many ways the last refuge of the desperate soul, the one who longs for peace and serenity in a world hellbent on destruction.
While there is no shortage of intricate and majestic mountain depictions in tattoo art and beyond, many of the more striking dedications are appealingly minimalistic in nature. After all, why adorn what has already been perfected?
These minimalist mountain tattoo design ideas are for the subtle and sincere lover of all wild terrain. This is a man whose connection with the mountain is nothing short of primitive, his preferred depictions a poetic echo of the first cave etchings. Defined by slender, simple lines and sparse detail, the minimalist mountain recalls the unforced aesthetic so often favored by natives and early settlers.
Wherever you wear your mountain tattoo on the map of your body, you will always know where your sanctum is.
Places of reprieve are rare in our current era, when the very earth we stand upon has been threatened by extinction. All men need such sanctuaries to retreat to in moments of duress, to restore their souls and sense of pride, and ready themselves for reclaiming their corners of the world. The minimalist mountain is elegant proof of its majesty, with no further need for ornamentation.

Minimalist Mountain Tattoo Ideas
This is a sweet example of using slightly differing line work to create a great mountain tattoo. The crags are created by clever use of two different black lines with slightly different peaks and troughs. The interpretation of the sun as a solid dark ball is a deft touch.
This is a beautifully drawn tattoo. The artist has applied a good sense of space and depth in making a mountain tattoo balanced with the sun and wave elements. The deft shading gives the mountains solidity and helps the image fully form.
Clever craggy angles and blackwork shading make this tattoo into a nifty group of peaks. The key here is using sharp, crisp lines to create the mountain boundaries, which are then expertly filled with shadow to add realism.
This is a very clever little mountain tattoo, playing the solid colors of blue-black off against the almost abstract shading to create a series of peaks, with clean lines supporting the changes in shape.
Use of differently filled circles help make this a cool mountain landscape. Firstly, half black work and half dot work makes the outer border a nice complement to what’s inside – a sweeping expanse of cleverly drawn multi directional shadow lines. The circular moon is a real attention grabber by looking like the surface of Mars rather than the usual orb perched above the Mohave Desert.
This is a beautifully executed exercise in minimalist line work. The clarity in the black ink is a real skill developed in this piece by the artist by using the shapes in a perfect form. No bends, no wobbles, no nicks – it’s all simple, straight, and clean.
Using a nice mixture of colored inks helps this image behind the wear pop. It takes a traditional faceted diamond structure and fills it with a 3D mountain scene. The crisp black line work keeps the scene well balanced and allows the colors to work well off each other.
Minimalist shade work can be tricky as it sometimes overdoes things to make an image too busy. This mountain tattoo strikes the right balance – the blackline work on mapping the peaks are fuzzied up just the right amount in the shading.
This tattoo is similar to the last one – it’s likely a thicker gauge needle was applied to get the extra gravelly look in the peak’s shadow.
This small mountain is a clever expression of dot work style. The image employs just a smattering of dots to the outline to give it some shading and a crescent moon.
There’s a variety of techniques used in this tattoo that help make it a considerably detailed small tattoo. There’s a smart combination of dotwork shading and geometric line work deployed to give it that interesting look. The diamond creates and interesting border for the tattooist to work inside, then shows off by creating the moon and clouds through deft touches of negative space. For such a smalls image it flexes real creative muscle.
This small mountain range is created through different applications of black and gray shadow. It’s a nice piece, but could have utilized some other techniques – a border, sharp black lines for angular peaks, or even different shaped shadows – to make it stand out a lot more.
A nice mix of dot work and short line patterning to create a nice mountain scene. The small highlights, dots for the river, black trees, knobby lines on the peaks – create enough differences to give the scene a character alternative to the negative space travelling throughout.
These rounded peaks look like they’ve been covered in cow hide. It must be getting closer to ski season on this mountain ink.
Another black and grey group of mountains. This piece differs slightly in that geographical co-ordinates have been added with a simple. It must mean this mountain tattoo has a specific reference point in the ‘real’ world.
This is an enjoyable abstract mountain piece. The use of dot work morphs the solid black and gray mountains with pine trees into an entire bear. It’s quite a clever little tattoo.
This is a very fresh, crisply applied tattoo. The dot work is on a very small scale but delivered with great skill to offset the clarity of the line work.
This funky. This little piece of abstract mastery makes you wonder whether the guy is standing and looking out from the middle of a room, or has he taken a Polaroid photo? You could say the answer is both, given the tattoo’s frame looks very much like a Polaroid. The line of wire and light globe is all that’s needed to create uncertainty in the simply delivered minimalist artwork
The flair out of the black line makes this otherwise simple mountain tattoo a lot more interesting. You could be forgiven for thinking the artist was distracted or slipped but lengthening the line out creates a sense of synergy across the entire piece and frames the full image better on the skin of the subject’s inner bicep.
Another example of combining crisp, short lines with fuzzily applied shadows to create simple mountain tattoos.
A negative space border has been created in this quirky mountain landscape. It’s cool that from doing the internal tattooing the artist has made a triangular border from untattooed skin. The empty space is also useful in creating balance through the center of the image. The deft dotwork is also applied, contrasting with the straight mountain lines to conjure cleverly shaped smoke and cloud.
The key to this minimalist line work is placement. If it was on the chest or arms it wouldn’t be very striking. Being placed on the ankle bone (yeah, the pointy bit that kills when you bump it) though makes it an unusual tattoo likely to remain visible and remarked upon.
It looks like this piece is almost a homage to the cover art of ET, but instead of a friendly alien there’s a flying pig instead. It is well worked – the solid black of the bacon sailing close to the moon. The rest of the tattoo is a bad ass mountain scene – it uses control of black and gray shading to make intricate depth through layering.
This abstract mountain tattoo in a circular frame is unique. The fat dots and black clouds make for funky snow, while more traditional dotwork creates shadow on the peaks, and near the trees. It’s a great little artwork.
This tattoo almost looks fake, only because the lines are so clean and crisp, and the black ink is so shiny. The shapes of the mountains, and gaps forming the troughs into valleys help this form a nicely put together mountain design.
This is a crisp piece of minimalism. The mountain tattoo is just a series of angular lines, but done effectively to form almost abstract peaks.
Skiing down this set of mountains would be difficult to survive. The imposing peaks of this tattoo are well shaded and very steep, and past those come epic pine trees drawn simply in black.
This is a clever mini mountain range. The work is the size of a coin at best, but well scoped to make the illusion it’s larger than it seems. The sharply etched black trees and faint curl of negative space produce the right scale in combination with the mountains.
A lot of minimalist tattoos find their way inked into awkward spots. This foot tattoo is a nicely drawn example, close to the heel and below the ankle on the outside part of the foot. It’s a small, compact mountain image that mixes black lines with a smattering of dot work to give it more density.
This is a nice abstract mountain range running down the subject’s upper arm. The mountain range – two almost interchangeable black lines of slightly differing thicknesses, one representing the top of the range and the other support – combine nicely with the shadows created by lightly applied dot work.
A minimalist black line wrist tattoo. It’s the size and thickness to have only cost the shop minimum of $50-$80, or even less on a flash promo day.
This artwork looks brilliant against the subject’s pale skin. The solid black tree to the far right of the picture is cleverly used to give a sense of scale. The flowing lines of the water have been well drawn, making the effect of liquid running right up to the base of the mountains. Hatch-mark black lines creates the mountain’s shadowed places – they seem more effective in this scene than if traditional shading had been applied.
This is a nicely etched mountain tattoo that almost looks like it was applied with charcoal. The artwork is all shadow work in tinges of gray, even the few the black lines that are used are done so in a soft, almost blurred manner. This piece may have benefitted from some other shape or border worked with black line to contrast the image – it almost seems to hover on the skin.
A great, clear, black work tattoo. All elements of the piece work well within the whole – each line is drawn in sharp black lines. It’s simple, effective artwork that balances the black with interesting shapes. The use of a plain font only enhances the rustic quality of the tattoo.
A simple, minimalist does of black lines. It’s small, with no need for shadow because everything is in proportion. The use of a hollow circle makes for a good interpretation of the sun, while the use of different lines makes the pine tree an interesting shape in front of the mountain range.
Got to love a matching set of mountain tattoo biceps. It’s a clean piece of art that mainly uses black lines to create the mountain range, then shaded with a touch lighter shade to give the work a solid body. It is then topped off by using negative space to create a feel of snow.This matching pair creates a great potential story line. Did they climb a mountain together and got tattoos to acknowledge the feat? Are they twins who were born on top of a mountain? Which mountain are they referencing? Questions are almost endless for a work such as this, and are probably more enjoyable than the real responses…
Using two different, solid shades in conjunction with a more abstract taller spire of shaded balck give this tattoo a unique look. The black line work framing the two images at the forefront tie them off crisply and allow the fuzzier block (separated by a small strip of negative space) to loom above them.
This striking tattoo flips between chunks of solid black and smaller, more subtle dots throughout. The dot work here is commendable, it’s difficult such a degree of detail into ink so dark, but there are layers to be found when building to the total black spaces.
Here is another funky outside of the foot tattoo. Again, there’s nothing flashy about it, just a solid mountain range created by effective shaping of black ink areas rather than use of shading.
Throwing a cactus into the middle of a mountain range certainly adds a degree of individuality than other works of this kind. Here, the cactus becomes the central part of the image, while the mountains and sun hang at the back adding depth. The short black line work is effective in creating 3D texture to the mountains
This is a creative idea! It’s unique to mix the heartbeat monitor reading with a stylized mountain range rising from the baseline midway along it. It’s a minimalistic tattoo, which could also be done effectively in a bigger, new school style image or even take on an abstract method.
The detail within the rock of this tattoo is realistic. You could pick something up from the garden and make a solid comparison. The overall shape also enhances the style of the piece – using a large circle, then the smaller one within are good contrasts to the dominant shaded stone. The upper half of the border circle being dotted and left to its own devices shows a nice touch of restraint from the artist and keeps the artwork from being overdone.
This is hectic! The interplay between dotwork, line work, shape and shading combine to create a bold mountain tattoo. The lightness and dot work of the mountain is contrasted by the heavy black spikiness of the trees in shadow. The twin triangular borders imposed on the image’s center give it balance. The other smart element – a series of vertical lines at the top of the piece – helps fill out and lengthen the total image.
This mountain scene and black band seems unremarkable at first glance, until you realise that the shading used to indicate the sky is completed with only the most subtle of dotwork technique. The black of the trees in the image provide a handy contrast to the rest of the landscape but helps give the lower black band a sense of place in the image. Negative space is worked precisely to create the illusion of a bright sun.
The simple dots at either end of this minimalist tattoo serve as excellent stopping points, like a book paperweight placed at either end of a library shelf. Having the central line of the mountain range dip well below the level of the other parts is also a clever touch.
This swatch of tattoo is completely dotwork. The artist shows good patience and solid technique in this display. What’s interesting are the two horizontal lines towards the top of the image. They don’t seem to be a previous tattoo. They don’t meet or overlap, nor are they uniform in length. The lines seemingly don’t have a purpose. What do you think they are part of the tattoo for?
Another mountain range within a circle. This one has a rustic use of shading, and the circle looks like it was drawn on with a slight freehand wobble. However, the shadow usage is done very well by combining a central black line augmented by fuzzy, thick gauge needlework.
The square border helps this tattoo become more interesting. Its bottom line is where the central mountain image is created from in a series of connecting lines, while ignoring the upper space keeps the artwork from being too busy and overwrought. The use of a tiny touch of shading to put snow in the top peak is a nice touch.
This is a beautifully drawn mountain tattoo. The lines here, although very thin seem strong because of their precision. The images work together to form angles in which shadow aspects of the rockface can be explored. The artwork also uses clever geometric principles in the creation of the abstract border by combining normal line work with dots and hatches.

The 9 Most Unique Pocket Knives on the Market
Finding a great pocket knife is like looking for a needle in a stack of other needles. It’s seemingly impossible. Sure, there are a lot of folding knives out there, and plenty of them are well-made and of perfectly adequate quality. But at the end of the day, most of the knives on the market just look like… knives. There’s nothing special about them. They have no personality.
But some knives are different. If you can wade through all the average, uninspiring knives on the market, you’ll find some that are beautifully crafted, uniquely designed, and truly exceptional.
Luckily for you, we’ve gone through the trouble of doing all the searching for you. What we’ve found are some of the most unique pocket knives available today.
1. My Deejo Creation
The ability to essentially design your own knife from the ground up makes My Deejo Creation quite possibly the most unique knife on the market. Every knife carrier’s needs and preferences are different, which makes this a perfect option for those who know exactly what they want. It’s also a perfect option if you don’t know what you want because you have a lot of options to browse through.
With My Deejo Creation, everything from the size and weight of the knife to the blade finish and handle material is up to you. Choose between a mirror, black titanium finish, along with numerous blade tattoo designs (or none at all).
Handle options include coralwood, ebony, composite and gold plating. Sizes range from a dainty 0.53oz (2.75” closed) to a more substantial 1.3 oz (4.3” closed).
2. Gerber Flatiron
The emergence of “pocket cleavers” as a style of pocket knives has been an interesting trend to watch in recent years. The Gerber Flatiron is one of the leaders in this unique knife subgenre. Boasting a stout, squared-off 3.6 inch stainless steel blade that folds neatly into a black machined aluminum handle, it’s a knife with a bold design and workmanlike functionality.
The Gerber Flatiron is not lightweight by any means. It tips the scales at almost 7 oz and measures 8.5” open. It rests comfortably in one’s palm and excels at heavy-duty cutting and slicing tasks like breaking down boxes and preparing meat for the grill. The blade has a handsome satin finish, and the overall design is an excellent melding of form and function.
3. Opinel No.8
Opinel’s folding pocket knives are about as basic as it gets. But these iconic knives are so perfect in their simplicity that their design hasn’t changed since the 1890s. There’s still no other knife quite like it. Opinel knives are also lightweight, budget-friendly, and sport well-honed blades made of super-hard carbon steel.
The Opinel No.8 is the most popular versatile model, but Opinel makes these knives in sizes ranging from No.6 up to No.12. The numbers roughly correspond to the length of the opened knife in inches – the No.8 measures 7.59” from point to pommel, and has a 3.28” blade – making it easy to choose the right knife for your needs. One thing to be aware of is that the hard steel blades are brittle and prone to breaking if you use them for prying or twisting.
4. Deejo Tattoo 37G
When it comes to choice, it’s hard to go past Deejo and their huge selection of knives. The French brand has been crafting a wide array of functional, customizable, and high-quality knives for over a decade for customers around the world.
There are several things that make Deejo’s Tattoo line of knives stand out. First and foremost is the custom “tattoo” design, which allows you to carry a knife that feels like an extension of your personality.
Deejo offers dozens of designs that can be laser-engraved onto the blade, which makes these knives as unique as the individuals who carry them. Deejo even offers a “Tattoo Your Deejo” kit if you prefer to engrave your own design onto the blade.
The Deejo Tattoo 37G is also a well-crafted and beautifully designed knife through and through. It weighs an ultralight 37 grams (about 1.3 oz) so it won’t weigh down your pocket or your pack. The blade is made of durable 420 stainless steel and comes razor-sharp right out of the box. It’s a trusty travel companion with a uniquely personal connection.
5. Boker Plus Subcom Knife
Boker makes some of the more interesting and eye-catching knives on the market, and the Boker Plus Subcom is one of the more intriguing additions to their lineup. While its small, stout profile might not be for everyone, it’s a good everyday carry folder that comes in handy when you need it.
The Boker Plus Subcom Knife is super lightweight at just 2.5 oz and its diminutive 1.8” partially-serrated clip point blade is sturdy and sharp, folding into a 2.6” handle with a black textured grip. It’s small enough to slip into your pocket, and you might forget it’s even there until you need it. The blade is made of strong AUS-8 stainless steel and comes razor sharp right out of the box.

6. Albatross Damascus Folding Knife
With its unique hand-forged blade, the Albatross Damascus Folding Knife is sure to turn some heads. The blade measures 2.6” and the knife opens to a length of 6” with a handle design that rests comfortably in hand. The knife also has a handy belt clip, and the linear locking function makes it safe to use and carry.
Rugged and dependable, the Albatross is popular among hunters, anglers, campers, and outdoorsmen of all kinds. The yellow sandalwood handle and striking Damascus blade with its unique curvature make this knife easy on the eyes too. One minor complaint is that the steel dulls easily, but it’s also quick and easy to sharpen.
7. SOG Cash Card
An interesting twist for EDC enthusiasts, the SOG Cash Card is essentially a knife and wallet all in one. Made of satin polished stainless steel, the knife handle boasts an oversized money clip just the right size for your cash and cards.
It’s a unique design that’s great for anybody looking to pare their pocket contents down to the bare essentials. Of course, none of this would matter if the knife itself wasn’t functional, but the SOG Cash Card has a sharp 2.75” drop-point blade, and the overall design is slim and practical.
It feels comfortable in one’s pocket and comes in handy for any of the countless situations in which a small blade might be needed. One small issue that some users have noted is that the clip is a little too tight for more than a few bills.
8. Petzl Spatha Knife
Made with mountaineers and alpine hikers in mind, the Petzl Spatha Knife is an innovative pocket folder that’s right at home in extreme outdoor situations. The hole in the knife allows it to be clipped to your pack or harness using a carabiner, and the textured wheel around it provides an easy one-handed opening, even when wearing gloves. The 4” blade is partly serrated for cutting ropes and cordage.
It weighs a lightweight 1.5 oz, which is a nice perk for backpackers and climbers who obsess over pack weight. Plus, the Petzl Spatha Knife is available in high visibility colors like bright yellow, making it nearly impossible to lose it in the wild. The stainless steel blade is extremely durable but may need frequent resharpening.
9. Higo No Kami 10 Pocket Knife
This beautiful, hand-forged Japanese pocket knife looks like it comes from another time. And in a way, it does. The knife harkens back to a traditional design created by a blacksmith in Japan during the 19th century, which included an innovative lever to aid in opening and closing the knife.
But with its 3” Wharncliffe blade and handsome brass handle, the Higo No Kami 10 Pocket Knife is much more than just a novelty throwback. It’s a versatile and functional pocket knife that’s perfect for everything from gardening to filleting fish.
Its carbon steel blade is easily honed to a keen edge, but be aware that this is a knife that requires some care. It will rust and corrode if you allow it to do so.

- Cat-eye: Nowadays, the cat-eye sunglasses shape isn’t only suited to women. Many brands manufacture unique cat-eye frames for men. Cat-eye frames are distinctive because of their feline appearance.
- Butterfly: Sunglasses with the butterfly lens shape are often large and oversized. Butterfly lenses cover most of one’s face, which provides ample coverage against the sun.
- Rectangular: It may sound like an odd lens shape, but it is still one of the most popular. The rectangular shape of the lenses characterizes rectangular sunglasses. These sunglasses are also usually thicker and broader near the lens area.
- Round: If you want to make a fashion statement, you should consider round sunglasses. Round sunglasses have circular lenses that often only cover around the area of the eye. If you have a smaller face, it can highlight a narrow jawline.
- Wayfarer: Classified by a thick frame and trapezoidal lens shape, wayfarer sunglasses have long been a timeless go-to look. This style of sunglasses is known for its versatility, and the form of the lenses usually suits most face shapes.
- Square: Square-framed sunglasses are perfect for adding balance to a narrow jawline. They are also great at giving a round face a hint of angles. Oversized square sunglasses have become increasingly popular for those wanting an edgy and incognito look.
Purchasing a new pair of sunglasses can be an exciting but complicated process. If you don’t pick the right pair, you could end up with a style you hate and waste money. You shouldn’t worry too much, though, as we have listed below a few pointers you should keep in mind when you go sunglasses shopping.
If you look out for the below-mentioned points, you will likely end up with a pair of sunglasses that matches your personality and needs.
- Bigger frames are better: The bigger your sunglasses frame, the more coverage and protection you will receive from the sun. Additionally, bigger sunglasses can help balance your face or highlight the angles you have.
- Polarized lenses are ideal for cutting glare: Contrary to popular belief buying a pair of sunglasses with polarized lenses will not protect you better from the harmful effects of UV rays. However, a polarized lens will prevent the glare from reflective surfaces from hitting your eyes. This is incredibly handy for those who spend time outdoors and those who often drive in sunny conditions.
- Look for 100% UV protection: Although it may cost you more in the long run, buying a pair of 100% UV protection sunglasses will be highly beneficial to preserving your eyesight. Look out for a sticker, tag, or online description that stipulates that the sunglasses you are interested in are protective against 100% of UV rays.
In the past, sunglasses were not an essential fashion accessory, but that has changed with the many styles that have become available. Sunglasses are almost a fashion staple item in the modern world because they come in numerous different colors, textures, and materials. You can match a pair of sunglasses with any outfit including, beachwear, formal wear, casual wear, and sport wear.
