Artist creates elegant tattoos made from only one continuous line

While other artists incorporate a variety of elements – ranging from watercolor to sketches – in their tattoos, Berlin-based artist Mo Ganji only uses one: a single, unbroken line.

The German-Iranian artist is known for his clean, minimalist style, using only a continuous line to form tattoos of animals, plants, and portraits of people. At first glance his tattoos might seem rather simplistic, but upon further inspection the tattoos are actually quite complex, having so much detail stemming from only a single line. A testament to the creativity of Ganji!

‘When it comes to life, I appreciate the simple things’, he said. ‘Anyone can add and add and add. It gets very interesting when you have a limited range of tools to work with. Creating something simple is way more challenging to me than creating something complex’.
