The Designs Available For The Minimalist Tattoo

Despite being called “minimalist”, the minimalist tattoo does not have a minimal amount of designs to choose from! There is a vast array of designs up for grabs for the minimalist tattoo! Here are just some of the best minimalist tattoo designs we can think of:


Low Poly Tattoos

Lowpoly tattoos are tattoo designs that feature a polygon mesh in 3D computer graphics that has a relatively small number of polygons. This specific tattoo design is quite famous for tattoo enthusiasts and tattoo artists that want to have a traditional tattoo design with a modern touch to it. The tattoo design holds a lot of meaning to it though usually, the meaning of the tattoo even if it is in low poly form is the same as the traditional tattoo design where it is derived.

Here are some low poly tattoo designs that are quite famous in the tattoo community:

Simple Geometric Tattoos

Simple geometric tattoo designs are tattoo designs that feature simple geometry or shapes. These tattoo designs are the simplest of all tattoo designs out there because it does not involve a complex tattooing process.

There are two kinds of simple geometric tattoos, the filled and outline geometric tattoos. Filled geometric tattoo, like the name implies, is a tattoo design wherein the shape is completely filled with ink. Outline geometric tattoos, however, are tattoo designs wherein the outline of the shape is the only one inked.

The meaning of a simple geometric tattoo really varies from tattoo artists and tattoo enthusiasts. Since the design is simple, a lot of interpretation can be used by the wearer to give it more meaning than the design itself.

Here are some simple geometric tattoo designs we saw on the internet that screams “less is more”:

1. A simple geometric tattoo on the arm of various three-dimensional objects.


2. A simple geometric tattoo of triangles on two arms wherein the upper arm features an outline tattoo while the other one features a filled in tattoo.

Wave Tattoo Designs

Wave tattoo designs are about as summer as it gets – aside from palm tree tattoos that is. The waves and the palm trees ultimately signify the season of summer. Imagine yourself lounging around the beach and hear the rustling waves and the billowing of the palm tree leaves against the wind. It is a relaxing vibe and atmosphere to behold! This is what the wave tattoo wants you to imagine whenever you see them. They want you to recall your last summer vacation and be in tune with the sea!

Waves are one of the strongest, most powerful, natural forces on earth. They’ve been known to swallow sailors as well as get them to their destinations. You may go against the currents but you’ll always get carried away by the waves. People who get wave tattoos strongly believe in making the most out of it and riding these waves instead.

Waves tattoos are hugely popular and the first tattoos originated in pacific islander cultures. Back in the day, it was common to see simple single line designs. Tattoos have become much more detailed these days and that means there are some pretty cool designs available to you. There are so many options available to you today.

Here are some of the best wave tattoo designs we saw that might evoke you the feeling of the sea:

A thin three wave tattoo in simple line form.
