    Geometric designs

    So it looks like I have finially decided what to finish my right calf off with. Geometric pattern style stuff. I have been lurking through some Thomas Hooper stuff and similar (propbably going with Hooper). So anyone have any good stuff to post or also what do you guys think for the space I am working with.

    Re: Geometric designs

    I've been really into the geometry/3 dimensional tattoos lately. Though I'm running very low on space I'd love to be tattooed by Thomas Thomas and/or Xed Le Head.

    Sometimes I wonder if the more 3D ones will become the 'tribal of the 90's', I'm still diggin' it

    Unfortunately for those of us in the States, Thomas Hooper seems to be the only guy known to do it here.

    Here's some cool ones....

    I like them but its all a bit wallpapery. I think Thomas Hooper's (and Jondix for that matter) work stands out cos its more than just repetetive patterns.

    Yea for sure. I guess I am lucky to be living within an hour (so to be 3 blocks) from Saved Tattoo.

    Re: Geometric designs

    I think it's interesting-all tattoos, art, and visual imagery are "geometric". I think that's why certain symbols like crosses,roses,skulls,anchors,etc stand out because their intrinsic nature is geometric.If you look at real tribal pattern art, the lines are representational, sometimes of abstract ideas like the Dreamtime in the Aborigines or social position in South Pacific, N. American native cultures, and early Celt/British tribal art. I think Hooper and Jondix's work standout to me because they are tuned into that frequency.
