Berlin based Mo Ganji’s stunning line tattoo collection has mesmerized us since 2015. Rendered in simplistic black ink, each tattoo is created using a single, continuous line and even with a rather limited composition, the artist is able to capture the most beautiful contours of people and animals.
To create “simple images with a strong impact”, Ganji has employed a bold and characteristic aesthetic. The artist has managed to compose one of a kind portraits with only a single curved line, shaved into various images which beautifully adorn the wearer’s skin. Additionally, the artist has drawn inspiration from wildlife, not only creating minimalist faces and figures, but mighty bears, intertwined fish and howling wolves form part of his stunning collection.
Having such a wide array of subject matter to draw from, the possibilities are countless when it comes to Ganji’s work, often including small amounts of stippling to add a shaded effect or tonality to the pieces, never detracting from the evident skill present in each and every piece. The most remarkable aspect still remains his ability to transform clear-cut objects from just a line into something one can only imagine.
