It's all about me

Geometric Pattern 01

Geometric pattern in blue, yellow-gold, and grey.

I had a period of fascination with decorative pattern design, the end result of which was me getting a full geometric sleeve tattoo as a 50th birthday present to myself. I’m mostly inspired by Islamic patterns, although quite willing to allow for cross fertilisation: there are elements of celtic knotwork in this piece, and in other sketches strong leanings towards polynesian design.

This project was painted in sections with goauche on cartridge paper, then assembled in Photoshop.
