Minimalist Tattoo Project

On a technical level, Lincoln’s tattoo was assisted by Laci at Tattoo Tradition in Sao Paulo, Brazil. I like what he’s doing a lot, both on a conceptual art level, and on a visual art level.

“The discovery of line.”

“Homage to the three jewels and my root guru.”

“Lines to write haiku:
Observations and others
inscriptions about transitoriness.”

  1. this reminds me of a guy who tattooed lines on his hand so he could keep memos. I love tattoos like that. The haiku one is awesome!

  2. I vote for a minimalist section in bmeink, i love these kinds of tattoos over most others.

  3. This is definitely one of the best tattoos I have ever seen. I remember seeing something quite similar on here a while ago, it was just lines and I think they were in red- does anyone remember that?

  4. I love it.
    This is the first time I come across the description of a minimalist tattoo.
    I always wanted to get a tattoo, and I described in various ways how I want that tattoo to be more like a graphic design and less like a drawing, I guess what I want is a minimalist tattoo.

    thanks for showing :)

  5. Oh wow. I really really like the lines for haikus idea. Really emphasizes the aspect of transience. I love it.

  6. I agree with 19 – Itai: I’ve never heard it called that but that’s definitely what it is…straight lines arranged in a prescribed manner appeal to me. I have a thought that ne day I’d like all my eventual tattoos to be joined up just by simple lines…
