Designer’s minimalistic tattoo pays tribute to dad

Kirk Wallace’s father once told him that he’d like a tattoo of crop circles on his forearm when he gets better from his sickness. When he passed away in Jan this year, Wallace, who is an illustrator and graphic designer, started sketching as a sort of tribute to his dad. He didn’t stop working on the design until a month or so.

Eventually he transformed the understated design to his own arm. As Wallace explained it, “The crops are viewed from 90°, then flipped to a birds eye view, and back to 90. Crops spelling ‘dad’ and above, the beginning of the sky which I plan to expand on later on to space and the universe.” It’s simple and just beautiful.
