For years tattoos have been filled with meaning, from swallows meaning a sailor has sailed 5000 miles, to anchors for stability, to a teardrop showing you’ve killed a man. Those might be extreme examples, but most people have some sort of meaning behind their ink, or at least make up a meaning to explain bad tattoo choices. But, what if you want a tattoo that doesn’t mean anything at all? One that’s basically just a design feature? If this sounds like you, you might like these minimalist digitally-designed tattoos from Russian body artist, Stanislaw Wylczynski. These clean geometric shapes look cool but mean nothing, although maybe that concept has meaning in itself! Check out these fourteen awesome tattoos and see for yourself.
