The beauty is in the simplicity and the artistry of these tattoos.
With his simple yet stunning linear approach, Berlin-based tattoo artist Mo Ganji shows that you can use one line to make a phenomenal impact. Using this single-line approach and a couple of dots, Mo is making a strong impact in the tattoo world with his intricately simple and beautiful body art forms.
His single-line art is all about creating something gorgeous and captivating out of a simple idea and in a straightforward way. When given an idea by any of his clients, the Iranian-born artist sketches it out on the skin in the same way he could do it on a piece of paper without, even for a second, taking his ink off the skin, and it becomes a piece of skin art all in one go.
Depending on the kind of thickness that the client wants, Mo will add some sparse stippling, finer details and appropriate emphasis that will surprisingly give the entire artwork a detailed depth and sense of perspective. Using this minimalistic technique, Mo can create animals, forest scenery, mountains, world map and even human beings.
And because it requires some serious artistic skills to create such dazzling body arts using one smooth continuous line, we should just take a moment to appreciate Mo’s single-line artistry.
