Tattoo Artist Uses One Continuous Line to Create Beautiful Minimalist Tattoos

When it comes to art, many people deem that it’s all about colors. While vibrant colors certainly add more life to artworks, the ingenious use of lines can also be a huge factor.  In fact, even a single continuous line can make beautiful illustrations. Minimalism in the visual arts is a style featuring extremely simple forms depicted in an objective approach. Just like in painting, minimalism can also find its place in tattoo art. While intricate 3D tattoos are making a trend right now, some people still prefer the simple minimalist style. For these minimalist people, less is more. To prove this, a tattoo artist from Berlin creates amazing tattoos by using a single unbroken line, and nothing else. Mo Ganji is making waves in the tattoo industry due to his minimalist tattoos that are so simple yet striking.

Ganji skillfully draws various figures of people and animals from a single continuous line. And the results are clear-cut minimalist tattoos that are equally incredible as their photographic counterparts.

The single line is inked onto the skin in bold and light impressions. Ganji draws lines in bold impression to highlight the contour of the image.  Then he shifts into lighter impression to accentuate minor details. With just a single line, Ganji creates stunning minimalist tattoos without any extra-visual association such as colors or shading. Indeed, these simple tattoos are the ideal proofs that there’s exceptional beauty in simplicity.
