Geometric Tattoo Meanings
When you look at a geometric tattoo you will usually find some form of pattern to the whole design. Some theme that is consistent throughout the tattoo. A geometric tattoo usually has one design, usually a shape, that is repeated throughout the tattoo to create a specific design. It’s a continuous pattern that is precise and detailed. Geometric shapes are usually shapes that have any number of sides and can be described by mathematics. The shapes often fit easily into a geometric pattern creating a wonderful design. They are mathematical shapes that create repetitious designs and a sense of balance and consistency throughout the tattoo.
The design that are created from geometric patterns are usually predictable. The pattern that is designed can be calculated and the eventual pattern studied. Although the routine of the design can seem comfortable. But the tattoo design is also logical and suited to an equation. They are symmetrical designs that are formed through geometric patterns. These patterns can be the key to contentment and happiness.
Geometric shapes are always studied throughout history through the study of geometry. Every figure in a pattern is often examined. An image in general can be broken down into geometric shapes, which can make it seem less realistic. An image can easily become a mathematical equation that has a logical explanation behind it. If the images are broken down first, then the image tends to look less complicated then when it’s all put together. It will look fragmented and more practical then the creation that you end with.
Tattoos that are created with geometric shapes usually mean something or are trying to make sense of something. It is hard to understand it in any other way. Geometric tattoos often are used as a sacred ritual because their intended goal is to show you a path to understanding. Each individual part of the tattoo has a meaning, a theme that can be considered before the entire image can then be understood. By adding geometric shapes to your tattoo you are giving the design building blocks of knowledge, you are building perspective and perception.
These designs are not only building blocks to knowledge but they also can be incredibly inspiring designs. Just make sure that you have a talented artist at your disposal because when it comes to a geometric tattoo it has to be precise and exact or the tattoo will always look “off” to you.
