As with any tattoo, you’ll need to keep your bandages on for a few hours, then Gualteros says to wash the tattoo with antibacterial soap and water, let it air dry for 10 minutes, and put a thin layer of Aquaphor on it after each shower for the first two days. (Then switch to unscented body lotion.) While the tattoo heals, wash it 2-3 times a day until peeling stops. This usually takes one week. Continue with light layers of unscented lotion.
Generally speaking, geometric tattoos tend to draw from shapes and patterns in the natural world. Some symbols, like the ones above, are associated with deeper religious and cultural backgrounds. Among the basic shapes, circles can portray relationships and community, and square-based designs stand for stability. Combining or connecting them is a way to convey balance between the two. More intricate figures, such as a dodecahedron (three-dimensional shape with 12 plane faces) or icosahedron (with 20 plane faces) may show the juxtaposition of complexity and unity.
He left quite a bit of skin in between his images which is another popular look for sleeves. They don’t have to cover your entire arm although many people choose to do that. This allows for more art down the road or he may choose to leave the spots open forever. People feel mixed about this because some think it creates an unfinished look. At the end of the day, it’s up to your personal preference.
31. What an incredible design, I can’t say enough good things about this cool wolf tattoo. You get the best of both worlds with the depiction of the real wolf on one side and the geometry shaping of the animal on the other. i love how the two are joined together. The detail on the real wolf side is perfect. If you want a unique look this is the one for you.
Advances in digital technology are giving artists a greater hand in creating geometric tattoos. Since this kind of tattoo needs to be extremely precise and even, a digital approach can save the artist time, make it easier to revise the design, and even ensure a perfect fit. Artists can do mock-ups by taking pictures of the body part that will be tattooed, and produce the design to fit it exactly.
Hamlet suggests bringing no more than three ideas to the meeting. Don't show up with a patchwork vision of "I want black and white, but maybe some color, and I love flowers, but really hope to have more of an industrial theme, and I don't want any sharp lines but do hope to feature some right angles." This also doesn't mean bringing three photos of other people's tattoos that you love (see #1 above).
People are drifting towards more non-traditional tattoos then ever before. People are becoming choosier about what they want on their bodies. One tattoo that is gaining popularity lately is the geometry tattoo. It’s a unique look that catches one’s eye immediately. You can get them in virtually hundreds of different styles. You may not realize it but geometry tattoos hold symbolic significance. It’s not just any tattoo that looks cool, there’s a reason why people choose them. For those that don’t know geometry is all about perfection and symmetry working together through science. It’s bringing harmony and balance together to form incredible things. These are the sorts of things that geometry tattoos depict.
I'm obsessed with my tattoo! Viet captured the design that was in my head so well, and it came out perfectly. This was my first tattoo, so I asked all kinds of questions about ink, sanitation, pain, etc. I'm that girl. Viet was super patient with me, let me know his awesome health code history (squeaky clean!), and answered all of my questions. His studio is a really clean, comfortable, stylish environment. My sister came with me and enjoyed herself watching The Avengers on his TV. Viet is an awesome guy who really knows how to take care of his clients. I'd recommend him to anyone and everyone! I couldn't be happier with my first tattoo or the experience of getting it!
If you're harboring any fear of commitment, it's going to come to surface when the time comes to decide on a tattoo. This goes without saying but when you’re going to ink yourself permanently—whether it’s a micro tat or a full sleeve—you're gonna want to get it right. Maybe you know what you want, but don’t know the best execution—something that will look good in 5, 10, or 40 years.
