Whether you want to get a tattoo for aesthetic purposes, or to denote the significance of any individual, belief, or event in your life; the importance of choosing the right design cannot be undermined. Geometric tattoos, in particular, have a history of religious, cultural and spiritual connotations. However, in modern times they are considered to be a symbol of fashion and style.
The idea of every geometric tattoo revolves around a mathematical shape which can then be elaborated or customized to create a beautiful pattern. One advantage of choosing such a design is that it usually turns out to be exactly as anticipated because the patterns are predictable, and the dimensions can be easily calculated by the artist, resulting in a balanced and consistent design. Yet, there is so much room for creativity ranging from schematics to minimalistic linear designs.
Even though the tattoo holder may have a particular meaning for the design one carries, viewers can interpret these geometric patterns quite differently, thus adding an element of mystery and uniqueness.
There is such a huge variety of geometric designs available all over the internet that one may get confused or even irritated while trying to choose the best fit for themselves.
We will enlist some of the coolest geometric tattoo designs that may help you make a choice.
The Geometric Sundial
This unique design summarizes a person`s composed, punctual and mature personality while simultaneously giving a fairy-tale like vibe. The sundial represents timekeeping which is more important than ever in today`s fast-paced world. Its association with sunlight may also reflect positivity, while it may hold a completely different meaning for others due to its Roman and Greek history. The room for imagination this design allows is one of the reasons it is at the top of the list of the coolest designs.
The Bird Lover

The Colorful Dodecahedron
Developed with 12 regular pentagons, the dodecahedron in itself is an interesting and complicated shape. It is also a symbol of the universe.
