Tattooing has been around since ancient times, and was once believed to protect the wearer while also symbolizing a spiritual connection with the gods. Though many trends in the art of permanent ink have come and gone, there is one particular style that seems to have stood the test of time: geometric tattoos.

Sacred Geometry tattoos are one of those styles that are currently on the rise. Not only are sacred geometry tattoos symmetrical and beautiful, they are also symbolic, powerful, evocative, and mystical.

What is Sacred Geometry?

Sacred Geometry ascribes symbolic and sacred meanings to geometric shapes and geometric proportions. Sacred geometry may be understood as a worldview of pattern recognition, a complex system of symbols and structures involving space, time and form. According to this view the basic patterns of existence are perceived as sacred. By connecting with these, a believer contemplates the Great Mysteries, and the Great Design. 

By studying sacred geometry patterns, forms and relationships and their connections, insight may be gained into the mysteries - the laws and lore of the Universe. Read more here

If you’re thinking about getting a geometric tattoo, there are a few resources that many tattoos artists return to, some artists look to M.C. Escher, others gain inspiration from patterns found in nature, mandalas and in other forms of artwork. Of course, no matter the design, symmetry is a large part of sacred geometry tattoos. Tho this doesn’t mean you can’t get wild with your own ideas!

Contrary to popular belief, sacred geometry tattoos are not attached to any religion and belief system. Some tattoo artists do not think sacred geometry tattoos are religiously sacred, others believe that the geometry behind the tattoo itself is what makes the style sacred.

Most sacred geometry tattoos are complex, original designs that incorporate shapes, dots, and shadings in order to come out with intricate and interesting patterns.
